Partner

w3.fund

Berlin, Germany

Full time

Sep 12

w3.fund is a Berlin-based Web3 micro-fund founded by serial entrepreneurs André Kanya, Tim Keding, and Feliks Eyser who partnered up with a team of three Web3-natives builders.

We invest globally in the best Web3 start-ups and NFT projects. So far, we have backed eight companies in areas like NFTs, data platforms, casual gaming, tokenization, blockchain infrastructure, marketplaces, and De-Fi. Most founders that we fund are serial Web2 entrepreneurs. We have also invested in digital assets and numerous NFT projects such as CloneX or BAYC.

The Web3 community is important to us: We contribute by hosting meet-ups (w3.pizza) as well as our flagship conference (w3.vision @ DMEXCO with 40k attendees). We also publish one of the top German Web3 podcasts and newsletters (w3.talk).

About the role

As Partner and Managing Director, you will be working directly with the founding partners. You will get to know the exciting and highly challenging work of a newly formed micro-fund by taking on broad responsibilities.

You will identify, evaluate and win over the best Web3 founders. You will play a crucial part in the whole deal journey - from the first meeting through closing - and ensure that our service level toward entrepreneurs is exceptional.

On top, the role offers a broader responsibility than a typical investment manager: Since we’re a first-time fund, you will have an active role in setting up the fund structure and supporting with LP fundraising.

You will be responsible for

  • Sourcing potential Web3 investment opportunities in Europe including start-up investments and NFT projects
  • Analyzing and evaluating businesses by conducting due diligence and reference calls, desk research, interviewing founders and early customers, as well as building and analyzing financial models
  • Overseeing investments in digital assets such as NFTs, Metaverse land, and other tokens
  • Attending international events to represent w3.fund and build relationships with founders, other funds, and the broader Web3 community
  • Collaborating with other VC funds to generate deal-flow
  • Support w3.fund’s portfolio founders with business development, hiring, and fundraising in follow-on rounds
  • Setting up and running fund administration and reporting functions
  • Representing w3.fund towards Limited Partners and supporting with LP fundraising
  • Coordinating our community events, flagship conference, and media channels (podcast, newsletter, social) with our media team

Requirements

We are looking for an experienced venture capitalist who shares our passion for Web3.

  • You earned a Master's degree from a top business school or university
  • You have 3-5 years of working experience in venture capital (as an investment manager or principal)
  • You have a passion for groundbreaking technologies and a solid understanding of Web3
  • You might have collected your own entrepreneurial experience in the past
  • You are an independent thinker with excellent analytical skills and are willing to challenge the mainstream mindset
  • You have strong written and oral communication skills
  • You have a getting-things-done working style
  • You are a great team player but can also work independently
  • You are fluent in English and German
