Join Us in Changing the World with Startups
We are seeking Senior Associates who are eager to search for the next Facebook, YouTube, or Alibaba. Softbank Ventures Korea is the early stage venture capital arm of Softbank Group investing in rising startups in the global ICT area.
At Softbank Ventures Korea, Senior Associates work closely with the Partners of the firm to assist with due diligence of potential private market investment opportunities, financial modeling, portfolio management and evaluation. This position involves much responsibility and independent thinking.
Senior Associates are on the front lines finding and screening deals. They will seek potential deals, by cold calling companies and entrepreneurs and setting up meetings, and then present prospective deals to the firm Partners. Senior Associates support all aspects of a deal, from due diligence to modeling and execution. With due diligence, they produce the initial analytics that lead a firm to pursue or reject a deal. During the later stages, they continue to work side-by-side with the Partner to close the deal. Work intensity and hours fluctuate based on how close the team is to closing deals. They can work extremely long hours near deal closings.
In addition to helping the firm discover the industry's most promising entrepreneurs, Senior Associates work very closely with companies post-investment.
There are several advancement tracks, but if partnership is the end goal, it is important to establish a strong track record of sourcing companies, closing deals, positively impacting the portfolio company, and exiting the investment to generate solid returns for the firm.
