Laconia is a seed fund based in NYC that invests in companies revolutionizing legacy industries. We typically lead $2-4 million rounds in b2b software companies, predominantly in the Northeast US and Canada. Within b2b, we are sector-agnostic, with investments spanning fintech, martech, supply chain, digital health, and more. As entrepreneurs and operators ourselves, we take a concentrated and hands-on approach to partnering with founders, with a strong emphasis on sales acceleration, operational execution, and capital strategy.
Central to Laconia are transparency, collaboration, and community. We value empathy, candor, intellectual curiosity, diversity, and accessibility. With an internship program (25+ alumni) and a fellowship program (180+ current participants), we have a long-standing track record of providing education, mentorship, and career development opportunities for rising investors.
As we begin to deploy our third fund, we are excited to add a full-time associate to our small but mighty investment team.
Our new associate will join the investment team and work closely with Laconia’s three partners (Jeffrey Silverman, David Arcara, and Geri Kirilova).
As an associate, you will have tremendous autonomy in structuring your own workflow and time allocation. Your core responsibilities will include the following:
As a relatively new firm, Laconia is in many ways a startup itself, and our ideal team member is someone entrepreneurial who is just as excited to build a company as they are about investing.
The most important elements for success in this role are the following:
The role offers a competitive compensation package, comprising a base salary and a performance bonus. Benefits include health insurance (with HSA eligibility), generous PTO, 401(k) retirement plans, and work-from-home flexibility.
If this role sounds interesting to you, please submit your application here. In the interest of maintaining process consistency (and preserving a modicum of control over our calendars), we will not be doing any informal chats with candidates regarding the role.
We will begin reviewing applications the week of July 12th and will accept applications on a rolling basis beyond that. Though we hope to bring this team member on as soon as possible, we expect that this process can take anywhere from a few weeks to a few months.
If you have any questions about the application or process, please email Geri at email@example.com.
Thank you for your interest; we can’t wait to meet you!
Laconia is committed to creating a diverse environment and is proud to be an equal opportunity employer.
