Due Diligence: Contribute to deal diligence efforts, including developing an understanding of markets and competitive dynamics, analyzing business and financial models as well as business strategy and operational plans, conducting customer and industry expert interviews and reference checks. Prepare metrics tear sheets, valuation and investment returns analysis and help draft detailed investment memos for our investment committee. Provide additional operational support to deal teams as needed. Strong attention to detail, project management and written communication skills are key here, as are your deal instincts and judgment.
Investment Operations: Own our deal CRM, pipeline management, and document management system. Compile our bi-weekly investment committee meeting agenda. Assist with portfolio monitoring and analytics, and contribute to the management and execution of investment close processes. Maintain up to date firm information in public databases (e.g. Pitchbook).

You are highly interested in the venture capital ecosystem. You follow the firms, individual investors and important trends within the space, and are developing an understanding of the industry at both high theoretical and on-the-ground practical levels.
