About the Job

We are looking for an Investment Associate to support our emerging investment team, working with highly experienced senior colleagues with outstanding networks.

We have successfully completed an initial financing round, to be doubled over the next 6-12 months, and our capital is designed to play a catalytic role in supporting early-stage enterprises and attracting additional private sector capital to the systemic challenges we seek to solve.

Your role, as part of a team, will be to help shape our investment strategy, evaluate investment opportunities, structure and execute transactions and manage our investment portfolio.

If you have a passion for supporting sustainable, private-sector driven solutions to pressing global challenges and finding creative solutions for unlocking greater capital flows, then this is a unique opportunity to use your skills for a greater purpose and work with a group of very diverse high-calibre individuals.

We are a team of people who are mission-driven, entrepreneurial and passionate about working together to solve problems we couldn’t on our own. We strive for excellence and innovation in everything we do, which makes for a high-performing but friendly and flexible environment. As we are a start-up with a tough mission, we look for people with resilience to bounce and perseverance.
