Job Description

Venture capital is one of the most challenging industries to break into. We want to change that.

Our Fellowship is a 12 month long fully-funded opportunity to work directly with the Luminous Ventures General Partners. It is designed to provide an unparalleled hands-on experience in all aspects of the venture capital industry. An apprenticeship where you can learn VC, by doing VC.

What you will be doing:

You will be given the opportunity to take ownership, contribute value and learn first hand what it means to be a venture investor.

Fundraising: You’ll shadow and support the Luminous GPs through the fundraising process. You’ll get access and knowledge to what’s 50% of the job in VC: raising investment vehicles from long term capital partners.

Deployment: You’ll learn how to discover founders, make investment decisions, and support portfolio companies. Fellows' activities range across sourcing, diligence, and portfolio support.

Networking: You’ll meet hundreds of exceptional founders trying to change the world. Sometimes you’ll be even lucky enough to play a tiny part in their life’s journey, as we do, when we invest in their companies. You’ll also have a chance to develop relationships with other VCs, angel investors and Limited Partners.

Apply if you are:

Curious: You love to learn. You ask a lot of questions. You have a passion for new technologies.  

Methodical: You like to think about things from first principles. You like clearly delineated and articulated systems. You like to write.

Flexible: You are a team player that can also pick up the ball and run with it. You’ll get a lot of autonomy and ownership and you should be able to thrive under those circumstances.

Empathetic: You’re respectful of the entrepreneurial journey. You truly believe that the only heroes in this story are the founders we serve. Bonus points if you built something from nothing.

Different: We believe that increasing opportunities for underrepresented groups, promoting gender, racial, and ethnic diversity will deliver better outcomes for the venture industry. If you feel you’re probably not a fit, you could be just what we’re looking for.
