We are excited to announce that we are recruiting two analysts for a new immersive venture program at BV. As an analyst, you’ll learn what the venture capital business is about and gain insight into many fascinating technology startups innovating across the built environment. Our analysts will sit on the investment team and work closely with partners on both our current portfolio and potential new investments. Through this hands-on experience, analysts will gain exposure to our network of startup teams from across the building lifecycle, as well as insight into our investment decision process.
This program is the start of a new tradition here at BV, but it’s a framework that has worked well at funds we know and respect. The analysts will commit to a two-year program, and both positions will be based primarily out of our HQ in Boston. However, you will also work closely with and have occasion to travel to see our SF team. Read on for more details about the program as well as how to apply, and please also share this post with any friends or colleagues who might be interested in the opportunity to work with our team here at Building Ventures.
Our analyst program
BV’s analyst program will be structured as an apprenticeship model, which will give participants the opportunity to work closely with our team members and delve deeply into our two primary investment focuses: construction tech and real estate tech. One analyst will begin their rotation working closely with Jesse, Allen, and Gregg on contech, while our other analyst will team up with Travis and me on proptech. We will swap after the first year, giving both exposure to the full market and investment team. There will also be ample opportunity for both analysts to collaborate with Ceillie on platform marketing and industry events.
We’re structuring our analyst program as a two-year rotation to enable participants to learn as much as possible about venture capital, innovation, and the built environment at BV. Our goal is to equip you with the necessary experience, knowledge, and network to navigate on to your next opportunity, whether that is at a portfolio or industry startup, in venture capital, or beyond!
Our ideal candidates
Above all, we are looking for people who are enthusiastic about innovation in the built environment and are genuinely interested in working with entrepreneurs not only at established growing startups, but also companies at the earliest stages. Our team here at Building Ventures comes from a variety of backgrounds, as entrepreneurs, startup operators, investors, and more. Despite this varied experience, the trait we all share is our desire to work closely with founders and support our mission to fund the startups who are creating a better built world.
More than any particular background, we’re looking for candidates who are curious, collaborative, and creative thinkers. We want candidates who have impressive communication styles, strong analytical skills, and an entrepreneurial spirit. We are hoping to attract candidates from a variety of diverse backgrounds and professions.
