Investment
VP of Invesment

Polymath
Bogotá D.C, Colombia

WE ARE SEEKING A VP OF INVESTMENT TO JOIN OUR YOUNG AND FAST-GROWING TEAM

With five existing ventures, a number of new ones to be launched in the coming years and in the midst of raising a $100M fund, Polymath engages in extensive fundraising activity. We raise funds from a wide variety of investors, including angel investors, Family Offices, HNWIs, DFIs, VCs, and PE funds locally and internationally. This will be a very interesting and valuable role for anyone interested in working in VC or entrepreneurship, with unique exposure to both the fundraising and investment processes and the opportunity to work with highly qualified industry experts in a project with no equivalent in the VC industry.

As a company builder involved at every stage of venture investment, from pre-seed to exit, Polymath plays a key role in venture investment. Rounds include not only financing for the portfolio companies, but also fundraising for Polymath investment vehicles. Exposure to external investments will also be gained.

With significant growth, and many interesting/big problems to solve ahead, we expect the Senior Investment Associate to bring his/her knowledge of the past and a hungry, problem-solving approach to the future. The Polymath model is distinct from VC or PE models, and we are searching for out-of-the-box thinkers that are hungry to build big in challenging markets. The position is an enormous opportunity to deeply impact a high-potential and high-impact organization through direct involvement in a wide variety of venture investment stages. 

 

Specific responsibilities will include:

  1. Working closely with Partners to raise a $100M fund that will invest in Company Building, follow-ons in existing Polymath ventures and external investments
  2. Building new leads and opportunities for fundraising, both locally and internationally
  3. Project manage raising of fund
  4. Own the fund financial model
  5. Own the fund pitch materials
  6. Coordinate and project manage due diligence from LPs
  7. Once the fund is raised, play critical role on the fund investment team

 

WHY BUILD WITH US?

  • Build the first highly successful, global company builder focused on emerging markets
  • Join one of the most talented and diverse teams in Latin America
  • Build ventures that have a strong social impact
  • See the direct results of every ounce of sweat (and tears)
  • Stop thinking about starting something... actually do it!

 

REQUIREMENTS

  • 5+ years of relevant investment and fundraising experience; 2+ years of experience in Venture Capital or Private Equity on the investment side required
  • Full business fluency in Spanish
  • 2+ years of experience working in Latin America 
  • Strong project management skills with ability to manage up and down as person will oversee investment analysts and work directly with partners to raise the fund
  • Superior communication skills, both written and oral, including the ability to prepare presentations and other marketing materials, and leading meetings and negotiations with prospective investors
  • Strong understanding of venture capital economics and modeling of fund economics and investment opportunities
  • Strong attention to detail
  • Self-starter, keen to work independently with limited supervision
  • Flexible and quick thinking, with the ability to deal with ambiguity
  • Growth and learning mindset, with no fear to challenge and be critical
  • Commitment to professionally grow together with the Polymath project
  • Full business fluency in Spanish

Starting date: Immediate
