Venture Portfolio Associate – London

May 11, 2021

Founders Factory is hiring two Venture Portfolio Associates to join our team. Your focus will be on our portfolio founders, both ensuring they receive the appropriate level of fundraising support and growing/maintaining our relationships with the investor community.
This is an exciting opportunity for someone who wants to gain deeper exposure to the inner workings of how startups successfully raise investment. The successful candidate will work with founders to help with defining their fundraising strategy, formulating their story, assisting with the creation/review of investment materials and helping them navigate the whole process.
The ideal candidate will also have an amazing platform to develop a strong network of investors and operators which in turn will create a valuable unfair advantage for the founders we work with.

Responsibilities

    • Work with our portfolio founders to navigate the fundraising process. This includes defining their fundraising story/strategy, building a pipeline of investors, reviewing their materials and negotiating terms
    • Help update the latest investment activities and manage the fundraising support workflow for our portfolio companies
    • Develop and maintain value-add relationships with the right investors through regular meetings, events and updates
    • Organise our internal investor database to ensure that all information are categorised and updated
    • Working with our Sector Directors and Investment Associates to identify and collate a calendar of relevant events
    • Help prepare and organise Founders Factory investor events, including our investor showcase days, in conjunction with our events team

Requirements

    • Deep passion for tech and startups
    • Outstanding people skills, hustle and resilience
    • Experience in venture fundraising or managing a portfolio of startups
    • Strong existing network of UK & European founders and VC/angel investors
    • Proven track record of synthesising insights and pointing to clear opportunities
    • Thrive in autonomy, uncertainty and can make unusual mental leaps
    • The ideal candidate would also have some form of prior experience in venture investing, startup fundraising, financial modelling and/or pitch coaching

Benefits

We provide all the excitement and freedom of an early-stage startup but with the stability and resources of a large organisation. This is your rare chance to contribute across the full business spectrum to become a founder in the future:
Growth: Work with and meet exceptional talent. Learn faster than you ever have before. Access our large network of investors and customers.
Autonomy: Freedom to execute, build businesses, not just products.
Health and Wellness: Comprehensive extended health care coverage from Vitality and mental health counselling with InsideOut.
Office and Remote: Desk space in fully-serviced office in High Street Ken and all the kit you need to work from home.
Perks: Free lunch once a month, healthy snacks, freshly ground coffee and Paul’s Irish Bar.
We are committed to building a diverse culture and are eager to receive applications from all backgrounds. All applicants will receive consideration for employment without discrimination.
