Venture Capital Jobs

VC Partners @ Alumni Ventures Group in Boston, MA

Using our innovative business model, our venture capital firm has successfully launched 13 alumni venture funds over the past 4 years and is looking to launch another dozen or so funds over the next few years. To help in this process, we are searching for an experienced venture capitalist looking to transition into a “manage and mentor” role, helping our growing number of venture professions meet their goals. Although you will be more of a manager than an investor, you will still be very close to, and active with, the most exciting ventures in the economy.

This is a full-time position located in our Manchester, NH or Boston, MA office. You will report directly to our CEO and will be joined by a full-time salaried Vice President. You will also work closely with our other senior executives, including our CIO, as we continue to develop and grow. You will get to travel approximately 15-20% of your time between our hub-based offices in SF, Chicago, Boston, and New York. Additionally, you will be leveraging the support of a well-developed back office team and systems created by AVG. (Linkedin, Crunchbase
