At Foundry, we take a network-driven approach to investing in early-stage tech companies and venture capital funds across the US and Canada. We believe in the accelerating power of innovation, networks, and capital to change the world by empowering the next generation of founders and investors. Foundry’s investment team works closely with our portfolio of more than 40 early-stage venture capital firms (what we call our Partner Funds) to identify direct investment opportunities in our network’s most high-potential startups. We’re excited to grow our investment team to support this work.
This is a multi-faceted role where you will develop networks while evaluating investment opportunities in both venture capital funds and early-stage technology companies. You’ll also get our support to explore and develop the skills and experiences you’ll need to be successful in whatever you might want to pursue next. This is a 2-year role at Foundry, and we hope it will provide successful analysts with a path to operating positions in our direct portfolio or an opportunity to migrate into our Partner Fund portfolio. We expect a tremendous amount from our analyst role, but we believe it is a great opportunity to get started in the venture capital business.
We’re always looking for ways to add a new perspective to our team and we are excited to meet you! We offer the below as a guide but not a requirement. We encourage you to apply and let us know what you’ll bring to the role.
We anticipate paying a salary in the range of $60,000 to $90,000 for this position, depending on the qualifications and experience of the candidate. In addition, Foundry Group provides a benefits package that includes, among other things, health care insurance (100% of medical, dental, and vision insurance premiums paid), life insurance, a 401(K) retirement plan, paid parental leave after birth or adoption, and unlimited vacation and sick leave.
