This is an opportunity for someone to come into the venture capital space and join our team as an Investment Associate.
This candidate should be a recent college graduate (pre-MBA) and have a background of 1-2.5 years from a top-tier consulting or investment firm (preferably with an Analyst program).

Associates at Cue Ball are responsible for prospecting and evaluating new investments, providing strategic and analytical support to portfolio companies, and executing firm-wide initiatives (from intellectual capital projects, to board management, to investor relations). Associates work directly with senior professionals at the firm and entrepreneurs behind potential and current investments.
Top performers at Cue Ball have had strong skills in pattern recognition, analytical capability, entrepreneurial spirit, and experience in investment banking or consulting. Qualified candidates should also have strengths in terms of commercial-mindset, people relationship skills, and a character of openness, humility and empathy.
