We are looking for an Investment Associate at our venture capital firm. This is your chance to join an already successful investments platform, focusing on cutting edge science-related technologies at their inception, with plenty of upside to be had. You are a scientist with an interest in applied business concepts, who will work with a dynamic team where creativity, passion, and learning are core values in the development of innovative new research products. As an integral part of a multifunctional team of professionals who drive the discovery and development of new technologies for life and physical science incubators and start-ups, you have an acute interest in a broad range of scientific topics along with the ability to apply them to ongoing research. More specifically, you have a strong science background, but you do not shy away from exposure to science projects that have not been directly linked to your core areas of expertise (i.e., Alzheimer’s-related research to aortic heart valve-related research to prescriptive analytics research). You will be primarily responsible for supporting the investment team in the overall management of the platform, including monitoring existing investments and supporting senior members in executing new investments processes. The position involves working with research projects, business plans, financial analysis, and due diligence reports.
The candidate will be energetic, focused, and highly detail oriented. Excellent communication and analytical skills are essential. Ability to explain sophisticated concepts in simple terms is primordial. The ideal candidate will be able to use entrepreneurial skills to solve problems and improve results.
