VC Principal @ Builders VC in San FRancisco, CA

Builders VC is an early-stage venture capital firm focused on investing where technology meets new business models to modernize antiquated industries including healthcare, agriculture, industrials, and real estate. With offices in San Francisco, Calgary, and San Antonio we operate a distributed investment team and invest from seed to Series-A. With over $400 of AUM and the launch of our second fund, we are expanding our investment team in San Francisco or New York and expect the Investment Principal role to lead new investments, be active in portfolio management, and work with our strategic LPs to identify areas for co-investment.

You’ll divide your time roughly into:

Pillar 1- Finding new investment opportunities

  • Conduct industry deep-dive & landscape analysis in the four core pillars for Builders VC
  • Build out a network of Canadian and American seed-stage funds in the ecosystem
  • Help implement the top of funnel process for screening and identifying companies
  • Building thought leaders through content writing around areas of interest

Pillar 2 – Leading of new investments

  • Lead due diligence and deep dives once an investment opportunity has made it through the funnel including expert & customer interviews, assess market opportunity and financial review and analysis
  • Prepare internal briefing and IC documents
  • Present and sell new opportunities internally to the investment and the partners

Pillar 3 – Portfolio management and portfolio reviews

  • Work with Partners to help take Board Observer positions
  • Draw on own and team network to support portfolio companies where possible
  • Manage complex situations within the portfolio incl. performance management, follow-on rounds, and exits
  • Contribute to portfolio reviews and benchmarking
  • Identify opportunities for follow-on funding from other Builders VC investment vehicles and present such opportunities to LPs
  • Work with a select group of strategic LPs to identify technology pain points and overlap for investment opportunities


We know you have what it takes if you have:

  • Originating, leading, and executing investments in VC or growth capital;
  • Operational experience at a start-up is a plus (but not necessary);
  • Being a key contributor in making and executing on investment recommendations;
  • Working with and monitoring portfolio companies;
  • Having acquired a strong analytics and strategy tool kit in strategy consulting, investment banking, or a commercial or financial role in tech

Note: we are open to remote work, however, prefer to have candidates at HQ in San Francisco or New York.
