To support our founding team, we’re looking for a passionate person with an interest in venture capital and entrepreneurship as Student Assistant (“Werkstudent”) (m/f/d) starting as soon as possible for at least 10 hrs / week - preferably even more.
Smart Infrastructure Ventures (‚SIVentures‘) is a private venture capital fund. Our office is based in Leipzig’s SpinLab (in the Baumwollspinnerei) where we are focussing on venture capital investments in early-stage software startups. We invest from € 200k in companies within smart city, energy, proptech, e-mobility, IoT, ehealth etc. Our hands-on team of three founders has extensive international knowledge in finance, entrepreneurship, innovation & venture capital.
We provide access to infrastructure (co-working office space and technology), coaching and mentoring, as well as to our international network of successful business founders, established market players and leading investors. As SIVentures is a startup itself, there are limited pre-defined structures and processes so you will have a lot of flexibility and responsibility. Therefore, being a self-starter with a hands-on mentality is a must.
