Yet Another (ex-)VC Blog

Cloud computing, startups, and venture capital

VC Associate @ Local Globe VC in London, UK

What you will do as part of our team:

  • Develop strong investment theses on markets and companies with fund returning characteristics
  • Find and build relationships with the most ambitious founders and key players in these areas
  • Develop and communicate strong investment conviction, learn the process for securing and executing the best possible investments
  • Demonstrate empathy and try to offer insights which play a pivotal role in supporting companies on their journey from seed to an excellent Series A
  • Take ownership for key operational projects which improve the management of our founder’s community
  • Have exposure and make key contributions to all aspects of portfolio and fund operations
  • Contribute to building impactful local technology and innovation ecosystems in Camden, London, the UK and beyond – we take our social commitment seriously
  • Inspire and lead your team from within – we are all in charge of fostering a culture of learning, collaboration and ownership

What you can expect from your new teammates:

  • Passion and enthusiasm for finding and supporting the founders who can surf the biggest waves changing the world that we live in today
  • Strong conviction that London and other emerging hubs can support these founders in creating world-class technology companies
  • Relevant insight and expertise from time spent working at outstanding technology companies, fast-growing startups, leading early stage investors or other equivalent experience

We try and maintain a strong and open culture. These are some of the key behaviours we look for:

  • We are comfortable taking risks – not just in backing founders capable of making outsized returns but in the markets we invest in and the way we operate our business
  • We play total football – which means we want team players who can recognise, value and add to the different, critical skills and contributions of every member of our team
  • We like to behave and think like entrepreneurs – to help founders build world-class businesses, we need team members who don’t just make investments, they show they want to build the best possible business to support those investments
  • We like to take leadership positions – we look for people able to show passion, conviction, empathy and are able to communicate clearly
  • We never forget we are the support team – to founders, to our colleagues and the ecosystem where we work and invest.
