Love Ventures is a leading early stage venture capital firm. We're growing fast and in the words of one of our portfolio companies are one of the top emerging venture capital houses in Europe.

This is a unique opportunity to join a growing team with big ambitions at an early stage. Applications close on 25th March 2022 and will be reviewed on a rolling basis.

About you and the role

Having closed our Fund II at the end of 2021 and being 50% deployed by April 2022, we are now focussing on fundraising for our next two funds. You'll be running the fundraising function at Love Ventures and will have real responsibility from the start. You'll be a key participant in the fundraising process, contributing to the Information Memorandum for each fund, all marketing materials followed by implementing the fundraising strategy for each fund. You will be working closely with the two co-founders and managing the investor process, from meetings (face-to-face and online) through to AML/KYC and onboarding. We have a substantial investor base (100 investors in Fund II) and expect you to build on this platform. You will have your own investor contact book, with a mix of HNWs, family offices, funds of funds and larger institutional limited partners. You will be expected to occasionally travel for both events and investor roadshows (mainly Europe and the US).

  • Marketing Material Oversight: contributing towards the Information Memorandum, Key Information Document, investment agreements and presentation/marketing materials for each fund.

  • Fundraising: using your own contacts and leveraging our existing book of investors to raise funds for Love Ventures. Your immediate focus will be on our next EIS Fund III and also our larger GP-LP Fund IV.

  • Network and Ecosystem: attending and hosting events to boost the Love Ventures brand and network; contributing to our external communications (e.g. website, social media).

The ideal candidate will be:

  • Well connected with HNWs, family offices, funds of funds and institutional limited partners.

  • Proven, having shown the ability to successfully fundraise in a previous role(s) with a minimum of five years experience.

  • Passionate about early-stage companies, disruptive technology, investment and the venture ecosystem.

  • Ambitious, driven and keen to help push the business forward with its long-term goals.

  • Entrepreneurially minded with the ability to work independently and as part of a wider team.

  • Keen to manage a fundraising team as the team grows and refine the strategy for each category of investor.

  • Flexible working;

  • 25 days' paid holiday (+ public holidays);
