After recently announcing our Fund III and Opportunity Fund I, we are looking to bring on two Associates to our investment team who will focus on sourcing and leading diligence on opportunities within our core focus areas, developing theses around this opportunity set, and supporting our founders within our portfolio. The role will be based in Los Angeles, requiring occasional work travel.
Who We Are
In Sweden, fika is an essential cultural activity that involves getting to know someone better over a cup of coffee. For us it is an excuse to spend time with the best and brightest as well as an opportunity to listen, create, and collaborate.
Fika Ventures is a Los Angeles based, sector focused (enterprise software, fintech, marketplaces, and digital health) seed fund started in 2016 and now manages over $300M in AUM backed by many of the industry’s top institutional investors. In 5 years, we’ve invested in some transformative companies including Pipe, OpenPath, Papaya Payments, Bowery Valuation, Elementary, Edge Impulse, among others.
At Fika, we seek to hire the absolute best talent and recognize that diversity in our experiences and backgrounds will give us the ultimate edge. We hire candidates of any race, color, ancestry, religion, sex, national origin, sexual orientation, gender identity, age, marital or family status, disability, Veteran status, and any other status. We embrace these differences and hope that together, we can build a stronger and more equitable future.
We invite you to come join us and be part of the fika magic!
