Through its team, CZI invests in innovative companies around the world that are developing ground-breaking solutions aligned with CZI's initiatives. Our portfolio includes leading companies driving impact in education, health, and climate through scalable and sustainable business models. We invest both as a lead and as a co-investor, and collaborate with leading traditional and impact investors to achieve our mission.
We are looking for a Senior Associate to support all aspects of the investment process to achieve our impact and business objectives: leading financial modeling and valuation workstreams, developing investment and impact theses, sourcing and screening new investments for our impact and business criteria, participating in meetings with existing and prospective portfolio companies, monitoring existing investments, and helping prepare materials to keep our leadership informed of our progress.
While this role will involve working across all of our sector areas, we are especially seeking candidates who have particular interest and experience in healthcare and biotechnology to support the growth of our Science investing efforts.
In addition to applying rigorous business and investment analysis to making venture investments, you may also spend a portion of time collaborating across the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative on strategic projects that cut across our impact investing, grant making, engineering and policy work to advance our overall mission.
The successful candidate will be excited to demonstrate their honed business and analytical skills to achieve our impact objectives while working closely with CZI's other tools and strategies. The ideal candidate will have experience in science and health, but care deeply about impact across education, science, climate, and strong communities. Ideally, you have prior experience in financial and business analysis through venture capital, private equity / growth equity, strategy consulting, or investment banking.
You will

  • Assist in the sourcing and screening of new investments by reading / reviewing business plans and pitch decks, participate in meetings with prospective companies, and develop investment and impact theses by assessing market trends to identify compelling businesses that meet our impact and financial screens
  • Support due diligence for new investments, including business and industry analysis, building investment models, supporting the preparation of materials for internal discussion, and supporting the team in deal structure, negotiation and investment execution
  • Monitor and support existing portfolio investments
  • Help prepare materials for portfolio tracking (impact and financial) and internal updates
  • Support special projects as they arise around process improvement, new areas for exploration, or portfolio support

    You have

    • 3-5 years of work experience, including a minimum of 2 years of investment experience.
    • An interest in our core sector areas of Education, Science, and Climate.
    • Ideally investment banking, investing, consulting or operating experience in life sciences or healthcare, and/or an educational background in biology/science.
    • Outstanding business and investment judgment, as well as strong analytical and problem solving skills.
    • Excellent financial modeling skills and expertise with Microsoft Excel
    • Excellent written and verbal communication skills
    • Comfort with ambiguity, as well as an ability to thrive in a fluid and fast paced environment.
    • Poise and ability to collaborate with C-level entrepreneurs and fellow investors.
    • Impact experience - in professional or meaningful volunteer roles.
    • Willingness to travel domestically and internationally (up to 25%).
