The ideal candidate will have a passion and curiosity for learning about the Global South (South & Southeast Asia, Latin America, and Africa) venture capital ecosystem.

In this role, the candidate can expect to learn the ins-and-outs of the portfolio reporting process and how to package those learnings into succinct and engaging reports, pitch-decks, and newsletters. Capria also provides a unique opportunity for fellows to learn the fundraising process and what goes into having a call with leading institutional investors, HNWIs, and corporate investors across the globe. The candidate will support the team in researching, packaging, and disseminating information to be shared with top-tier blue-chip investors.
 
You will gain invaluable experience in pitch prowess and investor engagement at a global scale.
 

We are seeking a highly motivated individual with a passion to learn about global VC investing, and is excited to work in a fast-paced, dynamic, distributed  environment, working closely with a globally distributed investment team across Latin America, India, Africa and North America.

Comfortable and effective working remotely, and able to stay productive in a remote environment.
