You'll be a key participant in the fundraising process, contributing to the Information Memorandum for each fund, all marketing materials followed by implementing the fundraising strategy for each fund. You will be working closely with the two co-founders and managing the investor process, from meetings (face-to-face and online) through to AML/KYC and onboarding.

Fundraising: using your own contacts and leveraging our existing book of investors to raise funds for Love Ventures. Your immediate focus will be on our next EIS Fund III and also our larger GP-LP Fund IV.
