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.
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. This includes The Primary Expert Network, which originated last year with the help of Amanda Schutzbank, and now consists of 200+ top operators in NYC willing to provide advice and mentorship to 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 number of early stage start up companies on mission critical initiatives. Your focus is to make sure Primary is doing whatever we can to provide operational support across our portfolio. This is NOT an investment position where you are working new deal opportunities. This job is about really understanding the different problems and issues that our portfolio companies face and helping marshal resources from our network to address those challenges.
