Job Description

January Capital is an established venture capital manager with offices in Australia and Singapore. We are looking for an intern to join our investment team in Singapore on a full-time basis for a period of 4-6 months (note that part-time interns will not be shortlisted for this role), so if this sounds like you, tell us who you are and why you will succeed at January Capital.

About January Capital

At January Capital, we look to invest in technology businesses that will power growth in the Asia-Pacific region over the next decade. We are committed to investing in founders who challenge the status quo. We’re inspired by those individuals who are willing to dedicate themselves to solve some of the region’s biggest challenges. We are unwavering in our geographic focus: we invest in South-East Asia, Australia, New Zealand and South Asia. We specialise in providing early stage venture capital to high growth businesses across a range of geographies. Our portfolio includes Kargo, Akulaku, Shopback, aCommerce, CoLearn, Bukukas and others.

About the Role

We are recruiting an intern to support our investment and portfolio management activities across the region. We’re looking for bright, motivated, and talented individuals who can contribute meaningfully and become a critical member of our team. We want someone who is eager to gain a detailed understanding of the operations of a venture capital firm and begin to develop the skills required to become a venture capital investor.


  • Participate in investment activities across the entire venture capital lifecycle (origination of opportunities, execution of new investments, and portfolio management).
  • Work with the senior investment team to identify areas of value creation across January Capital’s portfolio.
  • Participate in ad-hoc portfolio support roles, including on-the-ground projects and assignments alongside January Capital’s investment team.
  • Participate in the broader venture capital ecosystem, by being able to attend events (i.e. conferences), assist in organizing events for January Capital, and connect with other investment firms

You will have the ability to be part of a collegial, tight knit and energetic investment team. This is a unique role for the right candidate, providing a unique opportunity to join at the ground level of one of Asia-Pacific’s leading venture capital managers.

Experience and Other Requirements

  • Eligibility to work in Singapore.
  • Experience: Prior experience in areas of investment banking, corporate finance, private equity, venture capital and consulting are not necessary but will be viewed favorably.
  • Execution Skills: An ability to move fast and learn quickly, juggle a long list of priorities, work autonomously and implement processes and procedures all without comprising attention to detail.
  • Analytical Skills: very developed analytical and quantitative skills - financial modelling and valuation experience is a bonus.
  • Communication Skills: Ability to synthesize complex information and communicate in an effective way to different audiences in both verbal and written formats.
  • Natural Curiosity: A real passion for learning and educating yourself about new industries, sectors, and skills.
  • Sector Passion: A deep respect for entrepreneurship and a desire to integrate with the technology and start-up community, particularly in Asia and Australia.
  • Language: Developed language skills (particularly Mandarin, Thai, Vietnamese, or Bahasa) is not a requirement but would be viewed favorably.

Note: by applying, you are providing consent to be added to future January Capital communications.
