Primary is an early-stage venture capital firm based in New York City, run by Ben Sun and Brad Svrluga, who combined have a 30-year track record as investors and operators in the NYC Tech scene. We primarily invest in two sectors: Next Generation Commerce and SaaS. We focus on startups based in NYC and strive to be the most valuable and trusted partner to our portfolio companies. Our portfolio companies include Jet.com, Maple, BounceExchange, Coupang, Reonomy and Ticketfly.
Since starting Primary Venture Partners, one of our core values has been to “Be the First Call” for the entrepreneurs that we serve. We want to be an incredibly supportive partner who is there to help them with the challenges of running their business. To do so, we have built an array of platform resources that we make available to our companies to help them address a broad range of operational challenges. The Vice President of Market Development is a new role to help our portfolio companies.
This is an incredible role for someone looking to get their start in venture capital or gain experience that will help them in a leadership role at a start-up. You will work with a select number of portfolio companies in helping with Market Development. This is NOT an investment position where you are working new investment opportunities. This job is about really understanding the needs of a few of our portfolio companies and supporting them by connecting them with the big companies that matter in their industry.
