Job description

Speedinvest is a leading European venture capital fund for digital startups. With 200M Euro under management, Speedinvest works side-by-side with early-stage entrepreneurs to build fantastic companies. Thanks to our hands-on model, our global partner network and our operations in Vienna, Silicon Valley, London, Moscow, Berlin and Munich, we have managed to become a focal point in the European startup community.


For our Vienna office, we are now looking to hire a Junior Analyst to help us find the next promising Consumer Tech company. We have proudly invested in consumer companies such as Tourradar, Flaviar and Shpock and strive to continue investing in category defining consumer companies.

About the Position

As a Speedinvest Junior Analyst you will gain first-hand insights into the startup and venture capital ecosystem and acquire knowledge in strategy and execution. You will be an integral part of our investment team, supporting Partners and Associates in all aspects of their work and thus learn the basics of the daily venture capital business.


You will have an active role in analyzing and tracking companies relevant to our investment thesis. Furthermore, you shall provide support to the Investment Manager by monitoring the existing portfolio companies and providing operational support to them, working on their ideas and supporting them with your “can-do” attitude.
