Job Description

Working at Demium involves you in a mission: to support entrepreneurs during the process of creating, developing, and growing their startups.

How do we carry out this mission?

We create startups from scratch through our AllStartup events and help pre-seed startups grow through our accelerator program.

The first major milestone our startups face is raising investment, which they can do through Demium Capital. Thanks to our asset management company (Demium Capital), entrepreneurs and startups that complete our programs are guaranteed access to investment.

Our history...

Demium was born in Valencia in 2013 with the spirit of a startup, since then we have been growing and increasing our presence in cities like Madrid, Barcelona, and Malaga; and crossing our borders to Portugal, Poland, Ukraine, and the Czech Republic.

Since 2020 Demium Capital is investing in our best startups. We launched our first €50M investment fund, with which we have exceeded our expectations, becoming the most active Venture Capital in Southern Europe in terms of the number of investments.

We have the spirit of the incubator that was born 9 years ago in Valencia together with the stability that our new positioning as venture capital gives us.

Why do we need to hire you as Investment Principal?

The next step in our growth is the creation of a larger fund to be able to invest in more advanced stages of the startups in our portfolio. We are therefore looking for a person to lead the operations of this new fund.
