Norrsken VC - Investment Manager

Investment Manager

Where is the next impact unicorn and how do we find it? 

We are Norrsken VC, Europe’s largest early stage impact VC with a €100 million fund and we’re looking for an Investment Manager who is as obsessed with the above question as we are. 

We are a small entrepreneurial team of 10 where every single person has an exponential impact on every result we produce. 

You will have an immediate responsibility and ownership of our entire investment funnel - from deciding which opportunities are worth pursuing, to how we support our portfolio companies.

You are absolutely the candidate of our dreams if you have experience on both sides of the coin, which is:

(i) How to make investments? - with experience in PE/VC or management consulting, and 

(ii) How to build start-ups? - hands on start-up experience;  having been part of a fast growing tech company or maybe you are a tech startup founder who raised venture capital funding and knows this world from the inside.

The role is Stockholm based, but our team is international and diverse. Thus, we offer extra shout out to international and female talents to apply as we believe that we can make the best decisions only when everyone is equally represented in the selection process. 

 Examples of areas of responsibility:

  • Independently source and identify new investments, trends and opportunities
  • Evaluate investment opportunities by analysing their impact, business plan, team, market and industry trends
  • Support entrepreneurs and track their performance
  • Build relationships with founders, investors and other industry stakeholders
  • Represent us at public events and contribute to strengthening the Norrsken VC brand

You are a good fit if you:

  • Want to make the world a better place, and believe entrepreneurship and business models are great driving forces for this
  • You like a dynamic and fast changing environment - we are start-up as much as the start-ups that we invest in so you should be excited about being part of a growing and constantly changing organisation 
  • Are positive and contribute to a vibrant and driven team culture
  • Enjoy working in a fast-paced environment and can demonstrate an ability to take ownership of tasks from start to finish
  • Love numbers and data
  • Have a degree from a top tier university
  • Have 5-10 years of experience in investment banking, management consulting, venture capital or private equity and ideally also a start-up experience

Norrsken VC was incubated by Norrsken Foundation, but today operates as an independent venture capital fund with an aim to create positive impact in the world while aiming to achieve top tier market financial returns. Norrsken Foundation is a non-profit foundation supporting entrepreneurs daring to tackle society's  biggest challenges, such as poverty, mental health, famine, food waste and environmental issues. of the journey as Norrsken is expanding to more places around the world.

Compensation is competitive. We encourage you to apply as soon as possible, applications will close on 31 Jan 2021, but we review applications on a rolling basis.
