Director, Investor Network & Relations job in Boulder
|Company Type:||Certified B Corporation|
|Impact Area:||Economic Development|
|Company Name:|| Unreasonable Group|
|State / Province:||Colorado (CO)|
At Unreasonable Group, we believe entrepreneurs building rapidly scalable businesses are our best bet for solving the world’s most significant social and environmental challenges. Every day, our team strives to give these entrepreneurs tackling BFPs an unfair advantage. We do this by connecting entrepreneurs with the networks of mentors, investors, businesses, policy makers and specialists they need to scale. We also run world class gatherings and programs, such as Unreasonable Impact in partnership with Barclays, Unreasonable Goals in partnership with the U.S. State Department, and Project Literacy in partnership with Pearson. To get a feel for what this looks and feels like, check out our Unreasonable Impact in 60 Seconds video.
In order for our entrepreneurs to thrive, one of the most critical elements of support Unreasonable can provide is knowledge and access to a variety of investors and sources of financing (internal funds of our own and a much larger ecosystem of family offices and funders worldwide). We are now on the search for a Director of Investor Network & Relations (the “Director”) to significantly grow and advance our community of investors (formal and non-formal). This person must come with an unwavering commitment to entrepreneurs, a strong network of funds, family offices, and funders to tap into, and expert knowledge of multiple types of financing sources (including venture funding, angel investment, private equity, venture philanthropy, grant funding, debt, etc.). In this role, you will build and maintain one of the most powerful funder networks in the world oriented around some of the most promising investments of our time that sit at the intersection of impact and profit. You will be charged with establishing and maintaining meaningful relationships and partnerships with domestic and international top tier venture funds, private equity groups, foundations, family offices, philanthropists, sovereign wealth funds, unilateral aid agencies, and angel investors. You will also co-lead the development and implementation of an Alumni support strategy to ensure financing is a cornerstone of our long term support for our portfolio entrepreneurs. Furthermore, you will support our team in our efforts to launch multiple in-house investment vehicles.
The Director of Investor Network & Relations will report directly to the VP of the Global Network and will also play a significant role in working with the Programs Team. Furthermore, you will work collaboratively with the Partners at Unreasonable Capital. WARNING: This job involves significant international travel, as our programs run globally, and you will plan and host investor gatherings on multiple continents each year. If that excites you, you should keep reading.
