Job Description

Cell is breaking down the traditional venture capital model and taking it to the next level. We work with corporate investors and family offices to design and build bespoke portfolios of direct start-up investments based on a jointly crafted strategy. Our team of seasoned venture investors with both operational and financial experience empower smart capital to access the latest technology innovation and talent.

We invest thematically across a number of sectors primarily at Seed and Series A, and proactively support our entrepreneurs on their journey. We began investing in 2020 and have already closed investments alongside the likes of Episode1, 7percent, Kima Ventures, Seedcamp, Sony Innovation, Speedinvest, Y Combinator and Pioneer Fund. We have continued to increase our investible capital from new LPs over the past year and are now scaling up our investment team ahead of significant expansion in 2022.

Investment Team

We are looking to expand the investment team with an experienced individual who has deep knowledge and passion for early stage tech investing as well as credible relationships within the VC ecosystem.

  • Represent the firm within the industry, attending and speaking at events, meeting founders, senior management teams and industry experts
  • Continue developing and expanding your own network of entrepreneurs, domain experts and investors within the VC ecosystem

About You

  • Independent self-starter with an entrepreneurial and proactive mindset
  • An interest in driving impact with an emerging VC, whilst comfortable operating in an unstructured environment
  • Strong analytical, financial modelling, reporting and communication skills
  • An intellectually curious, open, humble and pragmatic team player with a solutions-first attitude
  • High level of empathy and EQ with superior stakeholder management ability
