VC Associate @ The Fund in Los Angeles, CA

The Fund is a pre-seed venture capital fund investing in startups in New York, Los Angeles, Rockies, London, The Midwest, and soon Australia, alongside top-tier venture funds. We have invested in over 100 companies over a three year period. Our capital in each geography is pooled from the most successful and connected founders and operators in that geography who source deals and support diligence. Decision making is centralized in a four person investment committee in each geo, highly experienced founders, operators and investors with well over $1 billion in combined exits. We believe that founders know the best founders, and by investing at the earliest stages of a company’s formation we can earn outsized venture scale returns.
