Some about us.

Since 2000 HV Capital has invested in Internet and technology companies through various generations of funds and is one of the most successful and financially strongest early-stage and growth investors in Europe. HV Capital has already invested in around 200 companies, including Zalando, Delivery Hero, FlixMobility, Depop and SumUp. The total of all HV funds amounts to €1.7 billion. The company supports startups with capital between €500,000 and €50 million. This makes HV Capital one of the few venture capitalists in Europe that can finance startups through all growth phases.  

Our 2022 Analyst Program

This year, we are hiring 3 Analysts for our Early Stage Team. Whilst we are already a reasonably large investment team with 20 people, we love to bring in new talent to enable access to a career in venture capital. As for us, VC is learned best and only by doing it, and we'd love to pass on what we know to the next generation of investment talent.  The program is planned for two years - in which every analyst will be working closely with a partner and an investment manager or senior colleague. Moreover, the analysts will benefit from our entire team's wide range of experiences, even outside of investment. After the program, we aim to help our analysts find their career path, whether within or outside our firm.



All analyst roles will focus on new investments in early-stage businesses. The program is a blend of all the things required to build up a portfolio as an investor.

Environmental Policy

We reduce our carbon footprint where we can. We offset with ClimatePartner what remains. We pride ourselves that everyone at our firm is committed to sustainabilty and takes action.

The People we like.

Who we like to work with derives from the business we're in: identifying the next "big thing" and backing others on their journey, however long it lasts. It's the same way we function as a team and informs what kind of people we love to be surrounded by:

  • Curious Minds. Those who get energised by the advancement of tech and the increasing impact of startups. 

  • Relationship Builders. We take pride in and live off our long-lasting relationships with founders, colleagues, LPs and ecosystem players, and our DNA is to be in it for the long run as investors and employers.

  • Humility. We are neither loud nor take ourselves too seriously. We'd instead seek opportunities to let others shine. VC is life-long learning - we might have seen a lot but surely don't know everything. 

How we hire

Cognitive Assessment

For some roles, we will ask candidates to complete a cognitive ability assessment with a third-party provider. We have found that investors' ability to assess data swiftly and logically is a core skill. We also love that this assessment gives all candidates an equal chance to show their capacities.

Getting to know you

A first, 20 minutes conversation, where we get to know each other and align on expectations of this role. This is also a chance for you to ask first questions.

Show us your skills

(For Analyst hires only) We will provide you with a real-life example of a case you would be working on. You will have time to prepare and present your findings to us.

Deep Dive Interviews

A couple of longer, 45 minutes interviews, in which we both answer your questions but also want to dig deeper into your skills and mindset. These will be with various investment team members, so you also get to know many faces at HV.

Final chat with our GP

(For Analyst hires only) A more extended conversation with a GP. We value team fit over everything else, and you will also understand our DNA way better afterwards.
