Senior VC Principal @ Horizon X Ventures in Menlo Park, CA

Boeing’s HorizonX has an outstanding opportunity in its HorizonX Ventures group for a senior investment professional as an individual contributor on its Venture Investments team. This unique position will support aspects of corporate venture capital from sourcing/screening investment opportunities, performing due diligence, preparing captables and financials, negotiating structures and terms, drafting and supporting definitive document development, closing investments, portfolio management, and post-close synergy realization.

The role is heavy transactional focused and requires a seasoned professional with deep due diligence, legal, and finance background with a strong detail-oriented background in developing investment rationales, assessing risks, and leading transactions from term sheet through closing with a strong CVC perspective to investing. Aerospace / hard-tech / frontier-tech investing preferred, as well as board-level experience as both a member and observer. The Venture Investments team is looking for someone who can immediately hit the ground running.

This small team averages about an investment per month which are primarily sourced through internal and external networks; the pace and work-load is much higher than the 2-deals per investing professional, per year rule-of-thumb as the team supports various non-typical VC opportunities and partnerships in addition to the portfolio investments.

This position has a base, annual bonus, and benefits.
