Business Development Associate

Please do not apply if you do not have at least 3-5 years of Business Development or Founder experience at a startup or at least 3-5 years of experience in venture capital, private equity, growth equity and/or investment banking.

SeedInvest is seeking a Business Development Associate to join our Venture Team in New York City.  SeedInvest is looking for someone with significant business development experience at a fast-growing startup or deal sourcing experience at a top-tier Venture Capital fund, Growth Equity fund, Private Equity fund or Investment Bank.  This is an opportunity to contribute significantly to a leading equity crowdfunding platform which is dramatically changing the way private companies raise capital. 

SeedInvest provides over 200,000 investors with access to highly-vetted startup investment opportunities for the first time and enables founders to spend less time fundraising and more time building their businesses.  SeedInvest moves the antiquated process of private company fundraising online but in a high-quality way, only accepting 1% of the ~1,000 startups which apply each month.  If you are interested in joining a leading fintech startup which Jim Cramer said “could be the future of how startups get funded,” we’d love to hear from you.

This is a salaried full-time position ($80k) with equity compensation (0.05%). 

We are looking for someone:

  • With a deep passion for startups, entrepreneurship, and investing
  • Who can hit the ground running and lead business development
  • Who can develop and maintain strong external relationships
  • Who can drive revenue and manage a P&L
  • With strong critical thinking skills and creativity

You'll be expected to:

  • Establish a new business development initiative at SeedInvest
  • Build and maintain relationships with Venture Capital firms, Angel Groups and Accelerators
  • Establish, evaluate and negotiate new partnership deals
  • Generate leads for new investment opportunities through referrals
  • Drive revenue through new deal referral channels
  • Manage and exceed weekly business development KPIs 
  • Continually find ways to improve our processes across the board

The minimum requirements are:

  • BA/BS degree from a top-tier institution
  • Significant business development (or Founder) experience at a fast-growing startup or deal sourcing experience at a top-tier Venture Capital fund, Growth Equity fund, Private Equity fund or Investment Bank
  • Proven track record of establishing relationships, executing partnerships and driving revenue
  • Excellent sales and deal execution experience
  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills
