Route 66 Ventures is seeking a Principal for its Venture Capital team. A Principal is expected to: (1) manage deal due diligence & execution with no oversight; (2) provide thought leadership, strategic guidance and operational assistance to portfolio companies; (3) represent Route 66 while attending networking events, conferences, and speaking engagements; (4) contribute to the long-term strategy and direction of the firm; and (5) bring fresh, new ideas to the platform to further refine, as well as create new, investment theses.
Based just outside of Washington, DC (in historic Old Town Alexandria), Route 66 Venture’s VC team has made equity investments in 20+ companies around the world. Route 66 has established itself as one of the leading global fintech investors, and it looks to continue to pursue new exciting opportunities, both in the near-term and long-term. Joining the team as a Principal provides a great opportunity to take on significant responsibility while enjoying a relaxed (but high performing) small-team atmosphere. We’re looking for high achievers that welcome new challenges, enjoy travel (domestic & international), have a passion for the startup ecosystem, and want to have an outsized positive impact on our portfolio companies and the future of Route 66 Ventures.
