Our client is a Venture Capital investor and accelerator and runs a comprehensive program assisting start-up founders to validate and refine their business ideas through to finding them the right partners and investors. Their point of difference is their network into Asia which they leverage both for funding but also for product validation. This HNW investor network consists of business owners, well-placed as early users of the products that are incubated via the accelerator program. Once commercialized and scaled, these start-ups are then well positioned for the next stage of investment both from our client via a $100 million fund and the network of Asian HNWs.

The role of the Investment Associate is to:
• Source start-ups from universities and other relevant networks
• Evaluate business ideas and founders, working with them as they refine their business model/ technology and scale.
• Assist with Asia HNW relationship management which will involve introducing and matching Australian founders with Asian HNWs/ businesses to facilitate both sales and investment
• Work with those Asian businesses and Australian start-ups to integrate products successfully

We have been mandated to search for an individual with 2-4 years’ work experience, ideally gained in corporate advisory/ investment banking/ management consulting or similar. Any experience with start-up/tech businesses would also be highly desirable. Given the exposure to the Asian investor base, it is an essential requirement for the candidate to have proficient Mandarin or Cantonese oral and written skills.
