Lockstep Ventures is a seed-stage fund with a mission of addressing issues that perpetuate racial inequality in the U.S. through venture capital. Backed by co-founders impresario Michael Loeb, rockstar marketer Bonin Bough, and Loeb.nyc, Lockstep Ventures invests in primarily Black Founders. By pairing meaningful investment resources with the scale teams and support from the company builders in Loeb.nyc, we provide the next generation of Black founders with the support to reach critical success.
As we continue to grow and scale our hands-on operational support for our companies, we are hiring a Principal to help our founders with financial and business modeling, industry benchmarking, and general strategic support.
The ideal candidate has worked in investment banking, strategy consulting or the NYC tech scene for 5+ years and should be resourceful, data-driven, intellectually curious, and ready to hustle. As a Principal you will provide your operating experience as a fund manager alongside our Managing Partner and Lockstep’s team of advisors. The Principal will also have the opportunity to provide leadership of our Investment Team, in our investments and diligence processes.
As a Principal supporting our portfolio, your day-to-day work will include extensive financial modeling, data room preparation for follow-on fundraises, industry benchmarking, market and competitive research, and general strategic support. Lockstep has a culture of promoting from within; this program is not only a great way to position yourself for an Operating Partner or investment role, but also a great jumping off point for a financial leadership role in our portfolio.
The perfect candidate is available to work full-time in NYC and has the following characteristics
- Consulting or investment banking background as well as experience working at a fund. Prior venture experience is preferred.
- A strong analytical toolset. Expect to independently build models and decks and engage in competitive intelligence. Candidates should consider themselves an Excel and modeling savante!
- A self-starter who we can trust to outline and execute on a model or diligence plan.
