Investment Manager

Mediahuis Ventures

Amsterdam, North Holland, Netherlands

Full time

Sep 22

Mediahuis Ventures is the venture capital investment arm of Mediahuis. Our team invests in high-potential start-ups that have an ambitious growth plan in Europe and beyond. Our goal is to build a portfolio of companies in new digital markets that will stand the test of time. In less than 18 months since inception, MHV managed to invest in leading edtech companies such as Lepaya, Perlego, Bunch, Myskillcamp and Tomorrow’s University. To help us close more investment opportunities, we are looking for one senior investment manager to help us find these companies, connect with founders to learn more about their business and review the market they are operating in.

You will work closely with the team on a weekly basis but also have the competence to manage your own work streams. You will have full responsibility on a market segment and will deliver, evaluate and sign new investments to add to the portfolio. We are looking for an experienced profile that can run a deal from first meeting a founder to signing a term sheet, support on due diligence and closing the investment — as well as support on managing the portfolio companies.

Our team is based in Amsterdam and is currently composed of one senior investment manager, one investment lead and one deal lead, all looking for the next big thing. We are expanding and are looking for one senior investment manager to join the team!

  • Manage your own dealflow in a predefined sector and propose top tier investments to the team

  • Present investment memorandums to executive board members in clear and fluent English
  • Excel in financial analytics of growth-stage companies, from past 24 month performance reviews to challenging assumptions in future projections
  • Research the market for dynamics, trends and key competitors to understand the space our potential investments operate in and share these insights with the team
  • Understand the strategic direction of the portfolio and find new investments in line with our ambitions
  • Understand the basic legal dimensions of a deal
  • Put Mediahuis Ventures on the map through networking and attending events, promoting the brand and representing what we stand for
  • Educating yourself on entrepreneurial success by speaking to (former) founders, fellow VCs, relevant experts and digesting loads of books, podcasts and blog posts

About you
