We are expanding our Venture team which is focused on investing in early-growth-stage Digital Industry companies.

Momenta is the leading Digital Industry venture capital firm accelerating digital innovators across energy, manufacturing, smart spaces, and supply chain. For nearly a decade, our team of deep industry operators have helped scale industry leaders and innovators.

We have made over 50 investments through our three Digital Industry Funds, realizing several notable exits. We don’t just finance companies; we help founders achieve lean, smart and sustained growth driving toward an orchestrated and valuable exit.


As an Associate Partner, you will take part in the full spectrum of venture investing — deal sourcing, assessment and investment in the best people, products and companies within our Digital Industry focus.

This is a full-time, contract position. Additional details can be discussed during the interview process. While offering a virtual office environment, we prefer that candidates are based in Switzerland or the EU. For context your manager is based in Menlo Park with the Ventures team spread across Boston, Engelberg-Switzerland, Grenoble - France, San Francisco, and Seattle.
