Bogotá, Colombia

Welcome to Polymath Ventures! The Venture Studio for Latin America.

 

ABOUT POLYMATH

We are a group of entrepreneurs with the goal to empower the middle-class of Latin America through designing from scratch digital companies that give fair access to quality services and better income-generating opportunities. We believe that this is the best way for sustainable economic development — and the most meaningful way to invest in our talent and energy.

 

WE ARE SEEKING AN INVESTOR RELATIONS/FUNDRAISING ASSOCIATE TO JOIN OUR YOUNG AND FAST-GROWING TEAM

With six existing ventures, a number of new ones to be launched in the coming years and in the midst of raising around $30M into Polymath, we engage in extensive fundraising and investment activity. We raise funds from a wide variety of investors, including Angel Investors, Family Offices, HNWIs, DFIs, VCs, and Strategic investors locally and internationally. We invest in our ventures from Pre-Seed to Series C. 

The Investor Relations/Fundraising Associate role will be with Polymath's Investment team, working closely with the CEO and CFO to both raise funds into Polymath and analyse and execute investments. The IR/Fundraising Associate will take a highly proactive and collaborative approach to maintaining client relationships and raising assets from existing and new investors across the United States. This will be a remarkably interesting and valuable role for anyone with an ambition to make impact investment and interested in gaining exposure to VC investments and/or entrepreneurship, with unique exposure to both the fundraising and investment processes and the opportunity to work directly with entrepreneurs.

 

Specific responsibilities will include:

1. Working closely with Polymath’s CEO and CFO to raise the second tranche of a $30M fundraise into Polymath’s holding company.

  • Supporting the process of building new leads and opportunities for fundraising, both locally and internationally and project managing the investment funnel
  • Owning the financial model for Polymath’s investment vehicle
  • Owning the pitch materials
  • Design and execute creative communications projects that help to increase understanding of Polymath’s work among investors
  • Coordinating and project managing due diligence from potential investors

2. Working closely with Polymath’s CFO to execute follow-on investments into Polymath’s six portfolio companies and set up a portfolio management process. Responsibilities will include:

  • Supporting the structuring of investment round terms and negotiations with ventures
  • Putting together investment memorandums to present to Polymath’s Investment Committee
  • Coordinating the due diligence around the investment processes

 

WHY BUILD WITH US?

  • Join one of the most talented teams in Latin America with the right methodology to dramatically increase the likelihood of startup success
  • Build something important that impacts customers' lives and employs 1000s of people
  • See the direct results of every ounce of sweat (and tears)

 

REQUIREMENTS

  • 4+ years of fundraising experience, preferably in an early-stage context in the US
  • Strong understanding of the venture capital fundraising ecosystem in the US
  • Proven ability to build, manage and develop key stakeholder relationships
  • Superior communication skills, both written and oral, including the ability to prepare and own presentations and other marketing materials
