Venture Capital Jobs

VC Analyst @ First Leaf Capital in Champaign-Urbana, IL

We’re looking for one analytical thinker to join our mini-headquarters team. The mission of this team is to find, analyze, and make investments in public and private businesses, including startup companies locally and throughout the midwest. We also work to increase the success of businesses we own all or part of by providing strategic input, timely capital infusions, and connections to our network of resources.

As the analyst on our team you’ll screen potential investments, gather and analyze information about them, develop theories and models about factors that will influence their failure or success, and participate closely in decisions about them. You’ll also get to go beyond abstract analysis, and look at real-world data in our business holdings to find opportunities for management to improve their strategies and results.

We’re a small team, so you’ll get a chance to apply your skills to the variety of projects we are working on, some outside the scope of typical analyst work.

You’ll need strong logical and mathematical reasoning skills. You’ll need a propensity to absorb volumes of information, distill the important parts, creatively generate theories about the key factors, and put those into spreadsheet models that clarify the situation and provide predictive, actionable insight. You don’t need prior experience in the financial industry.

Starting salary: $55,000.
Paid time off.
Flexible work schedule and the option to work remotely some days.
A stipend for health insurance in lieu of a group insurance plan.

We celebrate diversity and we are committed to creating an inclusive environment for all employees. We encourage all interested candidates to apply.
