VC Principal @ Companisto in Berlin, Germany

Companisto is the largest private investor network in the DA-CH region and Germany’s most active private venture capitalist for the fifth year in a row. We offer investors access to equity investments in innovative startups, which can be concluded digitally. To date, EUR 78,291,787 has been invested in over 147 companies through Companisto. Companisto consists of a digital business angel network (investments from € 10,000) and an investment club (investments from € 500 to € 25,000).

Innovating venture capital – that is our guiding principle. Since our inception, we have been pioneers and technological leaders in the advancement of startup investments. We use technology and digitization to make investing in startups easier. At the same time, we attach great importance to the human factor and network intensively with our founders and investors. We have recently introduced a new type of digital communication platform through which our portfolio startups can get active support from our strong investor network on their way to exit. 

To support our team in Berlin, we are now looking for a principal in the investment team (d / f / m).

Are you interested in becoming part of the new venture capital scene and growing with us?

As a principal, you strengthen the management of the investment team and are particularly responsible for the selection process and negotiations with startups. You examine innovative companies and negotiate the investment terms independently until the participation agreements are concluded. In addition to making new startup investments, you will provide intensive support for portfolio companies and make a significant contribution to the further development of investment controlling. As a fellow campaigner and part of the management team, you have the opportunity to become entrepreneurial and implement your own ideas in a very entrepreneurial environment.

  • Independent sourcing of promising startups and companies as investment targets
  • Implementation of company valuations and due diligence processes
