Graphite Ventures is an early stage “seeding for scale” venture capital firm. We invest in early stage B2B SaaS, Fintech, Digital Health and capital efficient hardware businesses.

Graphite Ventures is looking for a diligent, enthusiastic, and results-oriented associate to join the team. The individual will be responsible for ensuring the appropriate management, reporting and valuation of a large book of portfolio companies. This individual will have a wider set of responsibilities relative to a traditional finance role and will also be responsible for other financial, operational and strategic activities.

Responsibilities will include:

  • Review and analyze board materials, business plans, and other information prepared by management of our portfolio companies.
  • Prepare internal valuations, which includes a detailed analysis of key value drivers and financial performance.
  • Prepare quarterly and annual reports for internal and external stakeholders.
  • Support portfolio companies with ad hoc research, introductions, and various inbound requests.
  • Support lead investors with ad-hoc requests including memos to file, financial modelling and analysis, and limited board meeting assistance

  • Perform portfolio wide reviews and analytics to help manage team time and resources
  • Support the director of finance with preparation of investor reporting, including the preparation of quarterly performance metrics

  • Exceptional business acumen with an ability to contribute to a wide range of functions within the organization
  • Strong technical capabilities in accounting, financial modelling and valuations.
  • A self-starter who is disciplined and able to organize themselves independently to assess priorities and balance multiple priorities, tasks, and deadlines
