Teklas Ventures invests in early to early-growth start-up companies in the following industries: Advanced Manufacturing, Supply Chain & Logistics, Mobility, Advanced Materials. Our ticket sizes range from €300k to €1m per investment. Teklas Ventures is a young setup founded in 2021 that offers a tremendous opportunity to build, shape and grow a CVC business for an extraordinary, VC-experienced individual.

POSITION DESCRIPTION

You will report directly to the CEO of the Family Office (Innotek S.A.) and will be responsible for the full venture capital "value chain" at Teklas Ventures:

  • Research & Market Mapping
  • Sourcing
  • Due Diligence & Investment Committee Presentation
  • Transaction
  • Portfolio Monitoring & Support

Teklas Venture's current and first fund is 100% family funded. Upon successful investment of the first fund we are considering to also raise external funds a couple of years down the road.

EXPERIENCE AND QUALIFICATION

You are a high performer with a top degree from a top university. Your CV ideally contains the following:

  • 4-6 years in venture capital ideally with exposure to Teklas Ventures' target industry segments
  • Proven own sourcing/deal track record and VC network
  • 2-3 years experience in investment banking/consulting/private equity evidencing your strong analytical skills and structured approach would be a plus

You have the required hands-on and do-it-yourself mentality to source and close deals from A to Z in a small team. Founders trust you and like to work with you. You have a humble personality, yet strong communication skills. If you don't have an engineering degree you have good enough technical understanding to be at ease in discussions with founders in an engineering/manufacturing/robotics environment.

So in short, you have all the experience and everything it takes to make "your own" deals and grow a young CVC setup.

ADDITIONAL COMMENTS

Innotek as family office and Teklas Ventures are young companies and joining early will give you the opportunity to co-shape an exciting journey with an entrepreneurial family that values trust, honesty, pragmatism and "no-bullshit".
