Unternehmertum Venture Capital Partners (UVC Partners) is one of Europe’s leading early-stage venture capital firms. We invest at the seed and series A stage in B2B startups across Europe. We focus on enterprise software, mobility, and industrial technologies. We are HQ’ed in Munich at UnternehmerTUM, Europe’s leading entrepreneurship center, and have recently opened an office in Berlin. We are privileged to have partnered with founders of startups such as Flixbus, KONUX, Vimcar, Blickfeld, TWAICE, Capmo, i2x, and finn (www.uvcpartners.com).
Many people say venture capital is an apprenticeship business. While it might take years to learn the craft of venture, we want you to be ahead of the learning curve. Therefore, we are looking for a Junior Investment Analyst (part-time) to join our team and to complete a 10-month venture capital traineeship program (working student). You will get first-hand insights into the way successful startups are built and why and how venture capitalists invest in them.
We are looking for an outstanding individual to join us to work within our investment team. What you will do is at the core of the work for our fund. You will help us lead research into various technology and industry segments, keep our deal flow machine running, help to build solid foundations for investment decisions by supporting due diligence on potential investments, and be the first point of contact for founders. You will learn about new products, technologies, and which business models work or don’t work.
We are providing you with a condensed apprenticeship program to learn the craft of venture capital at speed at the heart of Munich’s startup scene. After “graduation” you will have what it takes to start your career in venture capital, to start your own venture or to join an early-stage rocket ship. We have structured the program along the following modules:
1. Deal sourcing
a. Great companies often come from unexpected sources – help us find new sources
b. You will identify, contact and meet entrepreneurs we should get to know. You will help us find THE next big thing.
2. Deal evaluation / due diligence
a. You will help us qualify the large deal flow we receive and allocate our time to the right opportunities. You will support the investment team in deal flow and business plan analyses
b. You will perform technology & market research and competitor analyses as due diligence on potential investments
c. You will participate in pitch meetings with founders
3. Investment process
a. You help with building a solid, data-driven basis for our investment decisions
b. You will support in writing investment memos on potential investments
c. You will support deal teams on executing financial transactions and help them in partnering with new startups
4. Portfolio support
a. You will support us in ongoing portfolio management, e.g. by helping prepare portfolio reporting
b. You have the chance to drive own initiative on how to better serve our growing portfolio
c. You will assist in exit preparations of portfolio companies
