Venture Capital Jobs Blog

Curated by John Gannon and Team

VC Associate @ Capital Factory in Austin, TX

You are the tip of the spear, constantly meeting entrepreneurs and innovators on the bleeding edge of technology and business. You know what’s hot and who’s hot and where the hot people hang out. You drive deal flow into our VIP Accelerator and Investment Fund and then pitch your startups to the decision-makers.

First, you focus on getting to know all of the entrepreneurs, mentors, and investors who are already at Capital Factory because some of our best deal flow comes from the community who work with us or attend our events. Then you go out to other accelerators, venture funds, universities, and corporate partners to find more. Finally, you actually raise funding from limited partners. You will get ten years of venture capital experience in three years’ time because of the large volume of deals that you will be exposed to.

Once companies are invited to partner with Capital Factory, you will help maintain relationships with startups and constantly be on the lookout for opportunities to get them exposure to potential employees, investors, customers and other VIP’s through Capital Factory.
