Job Profile: Venture Capital Analyst (f/m)

The German startup ecosystem is growing and becoming more mature. Capnamic Ventures is known as one of the leading early stage tech venture capital firms located in Berlin and Cologne. We strongly believe that the real power of a VC comes from its network, experience, credibility and the combined brainpower of all active investment professionals. That’s why we are constantly building our investment team in order to support our portfolio companies with as much brain power as possible.

Our focus is investing in young technology companies in markets and industries which are characterized by technological innovation and high growth; disruption driven by digital transformation.

Join our team at Capnamic Ventures and immerse yourself in the exciting ecosystem of venture capital. Evaluate market opportunities, meet promising teams and support the due diligence process from screening to closing and work closely with the portfolio companies in building successful businesses. You will be a core part of our small and agile team and you will be exposed to all the inner workings of an experienced venture capital firm.

So we are hiring an Analyst. In our office in Berlin, you will be responsible for screening and analyzing deal flow opportunities. The position will allow you to start taking over responsibility in due diligence processes and individual venture investments. This position will involve extensive financial and technological due diligence, modelling business cases and preparing investment memorandums and presentations.

Here is a broad outline of your job:

  • Screen and prioritize investment opportunities and support investment decision making
  • Support due diligence, including market, competitive and technology research, with respect to a particular investment or an industry as a whole
  • Work as a team with a Partner to negotiate with prospective portfolio companies
  • Support portfolio companies in their need to ship products, build a customer base, grow the organization, and develop strategic positioning
  • Work closely and effectively with colleagues, founders, lawyers, accountants, executive search firms and other contacts in our network
  • Extend Capnamic Ventures’ network by attending events such as conferences and meet-ups of start-up entrepreneurs
  • Job location: Berlin, Germany

As an ideal candidate you have:

  • Strong technological and entrepreneurial mindset
  • At least one years of operating experience at a high-tech company, preferably in a product management or business development role, or at least one year in a junior position at a tech focused venture firm with first experience in deal flow analysis and due diligence
  • Hands-on work experience in early-stage technology companies is a plus
  • Bachelor’s degree or equivalent, preferably related to technology, business or finance;
  • Superior financial modelling, writing and presentation skills
  • Excellent research, organizational skills
  • Effective communication, interpersonal and networking skills
  • Fluent in German and English
  • Ability to perform at a high level without significant supervision and with attention to detail
  • Ability to interpret data and provide relevant conclusions/recommendations
  • Ability to articulate ideas in a group setting

At Capnamic Ventures, we basically do two things: We strive to make the best investments and then do everything to help our portfolio companies succeed.

We are a small, collegial team – our culture and spirit are our strongest values. Thus, it is very important to us that new team members share our dedication for technology as much as the potential of digital transformation but also our values with regard to team spirit and cooperation. You should also be prepared to firmly defend thoughtful positions on potential investments, but also to carefully consider the positions of others to be intellectually honest and open for opposite opinions.

Perhaps most importantly, the successful candidate is a „net native“ and tech savvy individual.
