VC Associate @ CSC Generation in Manhattan Beach, CA

By the time that Justin Yoshimura turned 25, he was a veteran in the startup world: guiding three companies from start to acquisition and many more as an advisor, mentor and board member. Nevertheless, he had yet to achieve his original dream of building a publicly held Fortune 500 Company, so he founded CSC Generation.(LinkedIn, Crunchbase

Your Responsibilities:

  • Project manage/own strategic projects to completion.
