leave a comment »

Lightbank, the $200m venture capital firm started by serial entrepreneurs Eric Lefkofsky and Brad Keywell (Groupon, Echo Global Logistics, Media Bank, Inner Workings), is hiring Associates for an immediate start.

Ideal candidates will have 2-4 years of venture capital, investment banking, consulting and/or startup experience, with an interest in technology, mobile, and/or internet companies.  Passion for technology is a must.  The role will be a combination of a typical venture investment role and hands on work with our portfolio companies. The position has the potential for internal promotions for exceptional performers. Previous Associates have gone on to more senior roles at other venture firms, enrolled in top MBA programs, have become executives at top startups or have been backed as founders by Lightbank.

Since its inception over 4 years ago, Lightbank has built and invested in over 90 startups across the country. We focus on a hands-on approach to venture capital, working alongside our entrepreneurs as builders and operators. We are often the first institutional capital into a startup and have built and invested in companies that have raised follow-on capital from the other top investors across the country.
