At boldstart, we are day one partners to technical founders who are creating new categories and reimagining existing ones in enterprise software. Our work with founders begins, in many cases, pre-incorporation and in most cases pre-product or early in product development. Our mission has remained the same over 11 years: to be a first check lead for founders from day one and to support them with our decades of experience and specialized community of advisors and executives from leading developer-first and SaaS companies. We’ve been there from the very beginning with companies like Snyk, Kustomer, BigID, Superhuman and many more and want to help our founders accelerate their path to an amazing Series A round and beyond.
As an Associate you will learn how enterprise startups are built from inception to scale and the fundamentals of venture capital investing at the seed stage and also in later rounds as we continue to support our portfolio companies.
In the role of Associate, you will join Boldstart in a two-year program based in New York City (location can be discussed further).
Because you are a continuous learner, an empathetic listener, and someone who jumps into challenges no matter how big or small, you embody our team’s scrappy mentality. You will harness those qualities to work on both quantitative and qualitative projects alongside your team and most importantly, our founders. From writing investment memos, to managing internal systems (such as our CRM), to research on new areas of technology, and helping with investor reporting, you will be involved in conducting diligence and handling requests directly from founders.
Finally, you will be a key member of the team, helping us to accomplish our goal of making our founders successful through learning from your colleagues and teaching us new things as well!
The qualifications listed below are in no way absolute. As an inclusive organization we welcome people from a range of backgrounds and experience levels. We encourage you to apply as we will consider all candidates. That said, we thought it would be prudent to list the qualifications we are ideally looking for:
