At Unreasonable, we believe entrepreneurs building rapidly scalable businesses are our best bet for solving the most significant social and environmental challenges of our time. Every day, our team strives to give the entrepreneurs we work with an unfair advantage. We do this by connecting entrepreneurs with the networks of mentors, investors, business leaders, and policy makers they need to scale their businesses. Today, the over 200 CEO’s in the Unreasonable Fellowship have raised more than $4.5B in financing, generated more than $3.5B in revenue, and are measurably impacting the lives of more than 530 million individuals in nearly every country and territory worldwide.
We are now searching for an associate to join our Global Portfolio team (the “Associate”); one who is a GYSHIDO master and voraciously passionate about research, execution, detailed communication, and identifying investors worldwide positioned to put a positive dent on history.

Utilizing our proprietary digital platform, keep Unreasonable’s private funder network up-to-date, logging investment interests of the over 1500 investors in our network and building out each funder’s profile to the highest level of detail to ensure Unreasonable Fellows are able to find targeted sources of capital that match their financing needs.
Conduct research to identify potential institutional investors, funders, foundations and other sources of capital globally
Track, manage, and update relevant data in regards to our investor relations CRM on a regular and continuous basis.

Assist with research relating to Unreasonable Global Fund investors.
Ensure the development and maintenance of FAQ documents, messaging, and other relevant materials specifically curated for investor related activities.

You see entrepreneurship as a driver of economic growth and an agent of global social and environmental change.

You have exceptional verbal and written communication skills along with strong presentation skills
You love creating systems and implementing them across work streams.

You love research and take pride in deriving insights from arduous amounts of data
You think and operate strategically. You recognize what’s most important to tackle, in what order, and are prepared to make informed, independent decisions.
You approach problem-solving with an open mind and are willing to take a leadership position with your peers to ensure best practices become standard.
