At Capnamic Ventures, we basically do two things: We strive to invest in the best entrepreneurs and then do everything to help our portfolio companies succeed.
We are a small, passionate team — our culture and spirit are our strongest values. Thus, it is very important to us that new team members share our dedication for technology as much as the potential of digital transformation but can also subscribe to our values with regard to team spirit and cooperation. You should also be prepared to firmly defend well-reflected arguments on potential investments, but also remain open minded in light of opposing arguments and different positions. Honesty and respect are core drivers for our successful work.
Perhaps most importantly, the successful candidate is a “digital native” and tech savvy individual.
Do you have the skills to do the job, share the enthusiasm for our vision and fit our culture? We are looking forward to hearing from you! If you have any further questions, please contact us via email@example.com.
