ABOUT US Aqua is an investment platform that is democratizing the world of private equity fund investing. Traditionally, private equity has only been accessible to institutional investors and ultra-high-net-worth investors at minimums as high as $10M+. We’re changing that by allowing investors access to the world’s best-quality funds at minimums as low as $10,000. Soon, we’re launching a suite of products that will allow all investors access to top-tier private equity funds at no minimum. We’re a passionate, growing team backed by Gradient Ventures, Google’s AI-focused venture fund, Soma Capital, Global Founders Capital, Hack VC, and rockstar angel investors. We’re looking to revolutionize the world of private equity investing, and we want you to join us in making that dream a reality.

Work closely with our current Head of Investment Strategy and Business Operations as well as our CEO to build relationships with private equity fund managers, manage fund launches and streamline the workflow of client onboarding and maintenance. Continually iterate on our processes and work with engineering to make meaningful changes that improve and automate our operational workload. Work to maintain direct relationships with our operational partners to ensure that we are making our processes as efficient as possible.
