Yet Another (ex-)VC Blog

Cloud computing, startups, and venture capital

VC Principal @ Accomplice in San Francisco, CA

We are Accomplice,(Linkedin, Crunchbase) a group of early-stage venture investors funding startups changing work, play, travel and investing, through technology and product. The partners are Jeff Fagnan, TJ Mahony, Ryan Moore, and Cack Wilhelm.

We launched our first fund of $212 million in March 2015. Accomplice is a continuation of the technology franchise at Atlas Venture. In October 2014 Atlas Venture separated the technology franchise from the life sciences franchise; Atlas Venture retained the name and Accomplice began anew. The current firm, across Atlas Venture and Accomplice, has $1B under management.

Accomplice is committed to partnering with entrepreneurs at the earliest stages while tweaking the craft of venture investing itself. In 2015 Accomplice and AngelList partnered to launch Maiden Lane, the first online fund backing operator angels. Maiden Lane is in Fund II, with $35M raised to put operator angels in business as VCs.

The partners are currently investing $250M across Accomplice and Maiden Lane II. The portfolio includes AngelList, Carbon Black, DraftKings, Hopper, Patreon and Plastiq, among others. We have seeded founders throughout the United States and Canada, from San Francisco to Boston to Toronto.

We think our approach to early stage venture investing is working and are looking to add a team member to expand our investment capacity in and around San Francisco.

ROLE AND RESPONSIBILITIES

Accomplice is hiring an individual to join the San Francisco team. This role requires an individual who is keenly interested in seed investing, has a strong bias to action, a team orientation, and a flexible and collaborative style. Because Accomplice is bi-coastal, building rapport across both the Boston and San Francisco teams will be important.

Responsibilities include sourcing deals for Accomplice and recruiting angel operators for Maiden Lane, assessing and diligencing deals, tracking Maiden Lane investments, building community and curriculum for the angel leads, and helping build the Accomplice brand.
