Job description


We are on the brink of a food revolution where farmers transition from plowing fields to operating bioreactors in order to produce the calories our growing population requires. Technological advancements like genetic modification, cell-free SynBio, new computational models, and cell culture innovations drive this revolution. With improved processes and enhanced infrastructure, we will see products like cell-based beef or mycelium-based pork reach cost parity with their animal equivalents - thereby affecting the lives of billions.

At FoodLabs, we have spent the last half-decade building and backing companies that have challenged the status quo in the food industry while stretching the imagination of consumers. Our portfolio includes companies such as Formo (animal-free dairy), Infarm (large-scale vertical farming), and Meatable (cell-based beef). Despite these exciting innovations, there is still a long way to go. With the pandemic dragging on and the war in Ukraine continues to rage, the constraints in our supply chain have become evident. The United Nations expects the number of people with insufficient access to food to soar from 440Mn to 1.6Bn. Equivalently, global food production corresponds to 13.7Bn metric tons of CO2 emissions, representing 26% of man-made emissions. We see it as our mission at FoodLabs to find innovative solutions that can make our production more efficient and sustainable.


We are excited to expand the FoodLabs Studio team with a Visiting Analyst. This role is a 4 to 6-month opportunity based in our office in Berlin. You will be supporting the Venture Studio team in ideating new business opportunities, hiring Entrepreneurs in Residence, validating businesses, and making investment decisions within our investment scope.

As a Venture Capital Visiting Analyst (Intern), you will be an integral part of our pre-seed team and will support us in:

  • Ideating company-building opportunities by identifying new technologies, future trends, and business models that will positively impact economies and societies;
  • Working with Entrepreneurs in Residence to develop and validate their business ideas;
  • Independently managing crucial parts of various simultaneous workstreams and contributing to decision-making processes; and
  • Attending FoodTech meetups to build out the FoodLabs network and brand within the community.

Job requirements


  • A passion for new technologies and business models disrupting the Food-, Bio-, and ClimateTech industries;
  • Outstanding university degree (or currently enrolled) in the field of Business, Finance or Economics - a technical background is a plus;
  • Work experience in a dynamic and fast-paced environment (top-tier consulting, investment banking, or high-growth startups);
  • Ability to articulate opinions on opportunities and technologies;
  • Analytical rigor in analyzing markets and understanding trends & technologies;
  • Adaptability and flexibility to meet the needs of a fast-paced environment;
  • Strong command of the English language - any additional European language is of advantage
