– Conduct industry analyses
– Support in fundraising
– Aid in birthing a new firm

Note that this list will inevitably evolve. As the firm grows, we will need support in origination, financial modeling, due diligence, etc. 

Expertise/skill sets sought

Ideally, VC or investing more broadly; strategy consulting; investment banking; product management at a tech company; investor relations/fundraising.  We will only consider candidates with a minimum of two summers worth of experience in a professional services or technology company environment. Strong writing/presentation skills valued.

Note that this is designed for someone who’s going to school in the fall/winter, as opposed to someone who’s looking for a new job.

To apply: 

Please mail careers(@) a detailed resume (see How to Write a Resume that Sells); expected compensation; location and time zone; writing sample; availability (hours/week and dates); plans for the summer/fall/winter 2020-21; and a summary of how you think you can add value to a brand new VC firm.
