Job Description

About Us 

The Newton Venture Program is a joint venture between London Business School and LocalGlobe VC with a clear vision: by 2030 venture investors will exceed 50% people from currently overlooked and underrepresented groups.  

Up until now, venture investing has typically overlooked too many and served too few, which as a result has influenced whose problems get solved in the world. Our urgent mission is to disrupt the ecosystem through increasing the diversity of venture investors and developing them so they have equal opportunity to thrive.

We provide a first-of-its-kind investor training program for investors who fuel the global innovation ecosystem: VCs, LPs, angels, accelerators, and tech transfer officers worldwide. At least 50% of each cohort will be female, and at least 50% will be from Black and minority ethnic backgrounds. 

Based out of Phoenix Court (home of LocalGlobe and Latitude VC funds) in Kings Cross, you will join our lean 3 person team (Executive Director, Head of Operations, Growth Lead), all with different backgrounds and perspectives. We are collaborative and trusting team players; no one is an individual contributor. Instead, we all shape the program, company, and community together.  

We are also flexible to working patterns that suit you best and are open to discuss any working arrangements that make it possible for you to be part of our team. Currently, we have one team day a week in the office but there is the option to work there as much as is convenient for you. 

Our mission also extends to our own personal development. We respect each other's long-term goals and objectives—and support each other to get there.

About the Role

  • Facilitate, direct and own the delivery of Digital and On-Campus programmes - obsessing over learner’s experience

  • You will own our learning product roadmap - build Newton’s core digital programme to scale

  • Transform high-touch fully synchronous course to lighter-touch asynchronous + synchronous course that can be built to scale

  • Improve and iterate product through learner feedback 

  • You will be guided by Newton’s core values of inclusion and accessibility in every decision you make to scale the programme and mission

We look for people who have a growth mindset, expertise, enthusiasm and who are motivated by change.
