We invest through batches via the Growth Program (post-acceleration program focused on implementing a growth methodology) and support the top percentile of companies in their next funding rounds.

About the job

We are looking for a Venture Capital Investment Manager to join the team and lead our investment efforts in the SEA region. On the investment side you will have full responsibility for deal flow sourcing, evaluation, deal closing and support portfolio management. Moreover, you’ll work on network development (VCs, Venture Partners, ecosystem enablers). While the role is focussed on SEA, you will get exposure to deals all across emerging markets. This is a remote role. 

Key responsibilities

  • Direct responsibility for our operations in South East Asia
  • Source, screen and close the hottest seed stage deals across SEA
  • Support our portfolio companies with fundraising and strategic decision making
  • Build high-quality relationships with ecosystem enablers, fellow investors and entrepreneurs
  • Support the investment team with the analysis of deals across other regions (MENA, Africa, LATAM, CIS)
  • Support the team in operational initiatives, such as pipeline management and knowledge capturing / sharing
  • Continually find ways to improve our processes across the board

Your profile

  • Mindset
    • Passion for venture investing, startups and technology, particularly in emerging markets.
    • A “can-do” attitude, strong drive and willingness to learn.
    • Flexibility & international exposure - This job only makes sense for someone who is passionate about travelling and excited to go somewhere completely new, often on very little notice.
    • Strong belief in getting things done - We are nomads travelling around the world so it is important to have drive, ownership and execution. Working remotely with an international team, you have to be comfortable working alone and capable to prioritize and make things happen.
  • Experience
    • You have 3+ years of relevant work experience in venture capital across South East Asia.
    • You have a strong network in the SEA region of VCs, entrepreneurs and ecosystem enablers.
    • Proven track record of sourcing, evaluating and closing deals.
    • Excellent written and verbal communication skills in English and minimum one South East Asian language.

Why our employees love working with us:

  • We are on a mission which is bigger than all of us: to impact people’s lives in emerging markets
  • You get many growth opportunities and responsibilities early on
  • You work in an entrepreneurial culture where you’re surrounded by a vibrant and diverse team
  • We offer autonomy and flexibility with a flat hierarchy and a strong belief that responsible people should have the freedom to do their work when and how they want
  • We were awarded as one of the most democratic workplaces in the world due to our freedom centered practices 

We are an equal opportunity employer with a diverse mix of nationalities and backgrounds represented in our company. We truly value diversity and believe that the cultural landscape of our organization should reflect the types of work that we engage in and the places that we do it. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, color, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, or disability status and strongly encourage applicants from historically underrepresented groups to apply to all of our roles at Seedstars.
