Summer 2022 Fellowship Program accepting application

Program description

Business Plan

Vectors Capital is looking for their next cohort of Impact Investment Fellows to join our teams and support investments in startups solving challenges in climate change.  This program is designed to give participants investing experience from the perspective of impact and global change, familiarity with VC-level due diligence processes and an opportunity to develop skills at the vector of sustainability and finance.

Co Workers

We are looking for angel investors, professionals, accomplished students (Ph.D., MBA, computer science or law) to work under the mentorship of seasoned VCs on deal due diligence, finance, operations, and fundraising. However, you will work as a team and you have the opportunity to work across responsibilities and collaborate with each other to deliver investments. The next cohort will focus highly on climate tech. If you have a background in energy, mobility, agriculture, heavy industry, buildings or other related areas, it is a big plus.

Prepare to work as a team  - we make investment decisions together. 

The Vectors Fellowship Program is part-time with an estimated 10 hours per week of engagement.

Deal sourcing and due diligence 

This is the most fundamental job of a venture analyst - you find the companies for potential investment and run due diligence. Then you recommend the deal to the investment committee for an investment decision. Includes a lot of market research, financial modeling  and founder, customer, investor interviews.

Operations

In a VC fund, operations are a big part of what we do. This includes events, running meetings, conducting regular conversations, new articles and more. You might support any operations duties that are required.

Finance

Even though early stage investment has less to do with financial modeling, we would like to invite some financial savvy investors to the team to compare public company, merger and acquisition data in the field, and have a better understanding of exit multiples at different stages. 

And also take a deeper look at the financial modeling startups put together. Do they make any sense?

Fundraising

We expect you to come in with existing family offices and other potential LP relations that you can convert to invest with us. You also have the capabilities or resources to reach out to more investors to add to our network of investors.
