Role Summary

Our Enterprise team is looking for a passionate, hard-working individual to join our investment team. Our Associates conduct industry research, source investment opportunities, brainstorm with founders, perform rigorous due diligence, and support our portfolio companies. A successful candidate will thrive in a collaborative and dynamic environment, as well as be a valuable partner to our founders and they build the next generation of enterprise companies.

We are technical investors that like to dive deep into segments of the market where we believe technology can be most transformative. We invest early, typically at the Seed, and are all-in partners with founders throughout their journey. Our team-first approach means Associates are expected to not only investigate themes by talking to potential founders, companies, and domain experts but also effectively share their findings by synthesizing their learnings, modeling scenarios, testing assumptions, and iterating with the team’s feedback. Our Associates gain exposure to our diligence and deal processes, and have the opportunity to source, underwrite, and support multiple promising enterprise technology investments each year. Previous associates have gone onto start companies, leadership roles in tech, or continue their venture careers at Point72 and elsewhere.
