About the role

The Venture Fund Associate supports the Accelerating Asia team by overseeing fund outreach and fundraising efforts, assisting with portfolio management, and LP relationship management. You will work closely together with different members of the Accelerating Asia team. This is a full-time entry level role.

What you get

If you want to immerse yourself in the world of startups and venture capital, this is a great place to be. You get to interact with change agents from across the region. You will be introduced to new ways of working and thinking and have the opportunity to expand your skill set. And all while getting paid for it and working within a flexible, casual work environment. Yay!

Tasks include:

  • Cold outreach to potential limited partners
  • Setting up, taking calls, and addressing queries of potential limited partners
  • Monitoring and evaluating metrics on outreach efficacy
  • Spearhead portfolio value-add initiatives
  • Financial modelling and analytics
  • Support with legal documents
  • Progressively save time by automating internal processes

Requirements

What you bring to the table:

  • High attention to detail and analytical skills
  • You’re an outcome driven problem solver. You're relentless in securing the resources and information you require (sometimes incomplete) and then achieving complete outcomes like a secret agent on a mission
  • Written and verbal communication skills (by the way, one of our values is being upfront and honest)
  • Interested in fundraising: ensure a high quality, streamlined experience for limited partners
  • Comfortable working in a startup environment (we move FAST)

How you will know how awesome you are:

  • Conversion metrics through the pipeline and seeing leads convert to secured fund investments
  • Successfully building awesome resources for portfolio companies and proclaiming “it’s alive”
  • Prompt quality responses addressing queries or requests from limited partners and portfolio companies

What We Offer

We offer a flexible and casual work environment. Be prepared to join evening events as well as work on the weekends under special circumstances. Expect to learn new things as you interact with startups solving big problems with cutting-edge technology. Be prepared to hit the ground running and absorb everything like a sponge. This will be a challenging work environment and you will be encouraged to try new things, learn, fail, and iterate.
