VC Analyst @ Volition Capital in Boston, MA

Volition Capital is a Boston-based growth equity firm with over $1B in AUM. Investing in the software/tech-enabled, as well as internet and consumer markets, Volition has deployed capital into 35+ companies over the course of the last 10 years from 3 funds. By focusing on high potential, founder-owned, capital-efficient companies Volition has been able to lead or participate in notable exits including BlackDuck Software, Chewy.com, GlobalTranz, iPipeline, Mindshift, Ping Identity, Redbrick Health, Velocify, Verid, and VisualIQ.

Volition has recently closed its 4th fund totaling $600M in fresh capital and will begin deploying from this fund during the 2nd half of 2020. To help us continue this momentum and accelerate investing opportunities, Volition is seeking an Analyst to join our investment team.

 

About the Role:

The Analyst will play a critical role on deal teams of 2-3 people. You will be responsible for and held to a set of metrics that focus on the management, cultivation, and progression of a large portion (2000+ companies) of your team’s investment pipeline. To accomplish this, you will be tasked with the daily execution of outreach activities including (but not limited to) emailing and cold calling C-Level executives across the US. Upon connecting with these executives, you will be expected to vet them and their organization, as well as sell Volition Capital as a leading business partner.

In this role, rejection will be a daily event, but with some thick skin, a positive attitude and determination success is attainable.
