my name is Louise, I am part of the early-stage investment team. After two years at BCG, I entered the dazzling VC world in Oct 2020, today working closely with David, one of our General Partners. My job means that I am regularly in touch with our founders, getting involved in the numerous funding rounds and gaining invaluable operational insights. David's companies make up some of the most promising and exciting companies in HV's portfolio: Flixbus, CoachHub and Urban Sports Club, to name a few. In parallel, I maintain my own sourcing funnel, which resulted in the Aitme investment in June 2021, numerous exciting founder contacts, and industry-specific insights.
This summer, we will make space for new talent to access a career in venture capital.
We are hiring one person at Analyst or Associate level. As the new joiner, you will take over parts of my role to continue to support David as I transition into expanding my investment skills.
