Bullish is an early-stage consumer investment firm on a quest to be the most valuable ally to founders looking to build disruptive 21st century consumer brands. To help find, fund, and focus on the right opportunities, we are seeking an analyst with 0-2 years experience and a hungry passion to break into venture capital.
We invest in the pre-seed/seed/Series A stages in companies and are the first investors in notable brands such as Peloton, Casper, Harry’s, care\of, function of beauty, Clare, HumanCo, NomNom and Sunday. But our financial capital is a mere entry point into the value we bring.
One part fund, one part strategic marketing agency, our investment operation is buoyed by an insatiable team of strategists, designers, and business types looking at early-stage investing from a demand-side mindset. As a group of people from the worlds of marketing, creativity and finance, we often say money is the least valuable thing we bring to an investment. Our quest is to harness the unfair advantage marketing can bring when married to the financial world.
We are looking for a hungry and high-potential Analyst to join our investment team. This person will have a “no task too big or too small” attitude and be willing to get their hands dirty on everything from deal sourcing to fund administrative duties. Because our team is lean and agile, we expect this person to be involved in all aspects of our fund operations.
Experience wise, we realize that this person is in the early stages of her/his career, so any proof-of-concept via internships or real-world experience will be considered. We seek someone who demonstrates undeniable hustle, determination, curiosity, unmistakable integrity, values, and a belief in teamwork. Please note that this position is based in our New York, NY office.
