henQ is an early stage, Europe focused B2B software VC. Among our most notable investments are Mendix, Sendcloud, Mews, Zivver, Orderchamp and Stravito. We are currently investing from our 4th fund, which is €80M in size.
Our mission is to be the first VC any European B2B software company meets. We get excited by (very) early-stage businesses, where the business mainly consists of the Founders and a handful employees. We invest in companies that have a sellable product and - in some cases but not necessarily - some initial revenues.
About The Role & Your Responsibilities
henQ is hiring an Analyst / Associate to help us further improve our deal sourcing and analysis abilities, as well as the depth of our portfolio support. More specifically: * Sourcing leads (e.g. finding interesting B2B software startups to reach out to); * Taking first meetings with founders of sourced companies to assess their potential; * Doing research in the follow-up trajectories for the deals your sourced; * Supporting board members before / during / after board meetings with henQ portfolio companies; * Improve henQ’s sourcing methods, helping us find even more great B2B software startups even quicker.
Your Skills & Character * You love learning and improving yourself; * You understand what makes people tick and care about that; * You are aware of both your own strengths & weaknesses, and love to help others to improve theirs; * You tend to make well-grounded decisions quickly; * VC is your passion, not something you do to fill week days; * You tend to say what you think and do what you say; * People love working with you(!).
Our Ambition for You
In the long-term, we expect you to become a key member in the henQ of the future. To become that, we want to invest in at least one future B2B software leader (a company with annual revenues of >€100M & >1,000 employees in >10 countries) each year. We want to be able to attribute at least one of those to your personal sourcing & selecting abilities in the next four years.
What you can expect from us * Join one of the fastest rising B2B Software VC’s in Europe; * Be part of the next Mendix, Adyen, Backbase, Zivver, UIpath, Mews, Celonis, Sendcloud; * Play a substantial role in our success rather than being a cog in the wheel; * Be productive in your own way and on your own time schedule; * A never ending stream of two-way feedback to improve both yourself as well as everyone you work with; * Work with and learn from VC’s who have been successful at venture investing for 15 years; * Get more carried interest much earlier than at any other fund, if you prove stellar performance in the first 18 months; * Unlimited vacation days.
