Role: Platform Associate

NextGen Venture Partners is an early-stage venture capital firm bringing a service mentality to startups. NextGen benefits from a network of 1400+ part-time Venture Partners who participate in our investment process and may invest alongside our fund.

We're looking for an entrepreneurial spirit who is eager to have dozens of touch points with our community every day. The successful applicant will have excellent people and communications skills and an enthusiasm for startups. Responsibilities include:

  • Communicating 1:1 with Venture Partners across a wide variety of areas. These include: their investment interests, connections they’d like to make, onboarding them to NextGen, responding to their questions, etc.

  • Creating and managing the production of written content, including newsletters, social media, and information about investment opportunities.
  • Facilitating connections between Venture Partners and the companies NextGen has invested in.
