Norrsken VC - Investment Director

Norrsken VC is on the way to become the largest early stage impact VC in Europe focused on investing in rapidly scaling early stage start-ups that use technology to solve some of the world’s greatest challenges while building highly profitable businesses.

We are looking for someone who already has a 5-10 years of strong track record in investing in a similar role. You will take on a deal lead role and be responsible for driving processes from A-Z as well as play a key role in setting the investment strategy and portfolio management. 

We are taking our investment activities to the next level, and this is an opportunity to be part of that journey. We are data-driven with clear metrics and a strong demand for results. But for us, results are measured not only in financial return, but also in impact.

We are based in Stockholm, but our team is international and we strongly believe that we make the best decisions as a diverse team. We are a small team with an entrepreneurial spirit where every person makes a significant contribution to our results.

 Examples of areas of responsibility:

  • Take on a deal lead role and together with the partners set investment strategy
  • Deal sourcing: through multiple channels help to identify new investments, trends and opportunities
  • Deal screening: call and/or meet with prospects, evaluate opportunities
  • Due Diligence: lead evaluation of investment opportunities through impact assessments, commercial, financial and legal due diligence and prepare internal investment memos
  • Negotiations: negotiate terms and manage legal process
  • Manage portfolio companies: support entrepreneurs and manage portfolio company reporting and oversight

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
  • Are positive and contribute to a dynamic 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 at least 5-10 years of investment track record in a similar role; start-up experience is a huge plus

Norrsken VC is part of Norrsken Foundation ecosystem, but operates as an independent commercial venture capital fund. 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. Norrsken has made 19 investments through its first fund, started 2 non-profit companies and currently houses 125+ companies in Europe's largest impact hub. In 2019 Norrsken announced the first step in their global expansion: building East Africa’s biggest hub for entrepreneurs in Kigali, Rwanda. And this is just the start 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.
