Senior Associate to the future of Venture Capital


Do you know how Venture Capital works? Then clear your mind. We are redefining the industry.

We at BackingMinds believe in the business of doing things differently and we mean in every aspect of it – from how we invest to how we work. By investing outside of the homogeneous networks of traditional VC we increase the startup ecosystem, maximize returns and drive change.

You will be given the chance to build and grow BackingMinds with us. We believe in a dynamic, fun and result driven work environment. At BackingMinds you will be given full responsibility and freedom to drive change with us from day one.

One day you might be meeting an intriguing entrepreneur in the northern part of Sweden, and the next you will analyze data from our office at Norrsken House in Stockholm. Since we are changing the statistics and reinventing venture capital, this requires us to think different. Every day.

What we are looking for…

We are looking for a Senior Associate with at least three years of experience from finance, business controlling or venture capital. You are a sharp, business savvy opportunity finder and a deal closer. You have high capabilities and you are a doer who never stands still. Responsibilities include investment screening and execution, effectively interpret and present data, performing due diligence as well as supporting our portfolio companies with both strategic and hands-on advice. Other areas include business development and building efficiencies in the company and in the portfolio companies as well as developing the BackingMinds brand. As a person, you are a natural networker with proven ability to develop and maintain effective business relationships. You are excellent at performing at a high level without significant supervision and with great attention to detail. Magic happens when you are around.

BackingMinds was founded by the entrepreneurs Sara Wimmercranz (Footway) and Susanne Najafi (Eleven, Clearlii, Localii) and is backed by international superstars like Karl-Johan Persson, Cristina Stenbeck, Lena Apler and several other business leaders, tech entrepreneurs, family offices, and investors. We, our backers and our portfolio entrepreneurs are looking forward to welcoming more members to our team.
