Curated by John Gannon and Team

Senior VC Partner @ Alumni Ventures Group in Boston, MA

Alumni Ventures Group is a fast-growing organization with over 100 employees across the country and a widespread, engaged community of over 400,000 entrepreneurs, investors, and supporters. We are disrupting financial services by bringing smart, simple venture capital investing options to 15 million accredited investors who currently do not have a good option to enter the asset class. Our corporate headquarters in Manchester, NH provides back-office support and resources to our fund teams in Boston, Manchester, NH, New York City, Chicago, San Francisco and Austin, TX. On an annual basis, these teams raise funds from their respective communities to invest in diverse, promising startups and growing businesses. Our key competitive advantage as an investor is the combined scale and connectivity of our vast network, our connected capital, which provides capital, sources deals and adds unique value for our portfolio companies. AVG has successfully launched 25 venture funds to date and will build another dozen or so funds over the next few years. We are private, for-profit, and not part of any school.

As AVG looks forward, we seek to grow and create value – with the goal of eventually becoming the most strategically valuable venture capital firm in the world. To that end, we are looking to extend our investing and community-building capacity to additional schools and to offer those people a choice of funds. To that end, we’re seeking an experienced, full-time Senior Partner who can communicate AVG’s value proposition and investing capabilities.

This is a full-time position based in our new office in Boston (Post Office Square). As Senior Partner, you will report to the Chief Community Officer and work closely with our Sales and Marketing teams. This is a salaried position with an incentive compensation plan and potentially some modest travel for the successful execution of your responsibilities.
