Today is an exciting day at NextView. Earlier this morning, we announced our investment in Change Collective (our first investment of 2014). Just as exciting, I am also pleased to announce that we are looking to add to our team for the first time since NextView was founded several years ago.
The venture capital industry is one that is experiencing unprecedented change. New funds are emerging with better strategies that are more in tune with the needs of founders. Additionally, firms are thinking more and more about how to add real value to their portfolio companies, and create more leverage all around for members of the team.
This is why I’m pleased to announce that we are looking to hire a Director of Platform and Community to join Dave, Lee, and I at NextView. Specifically, we are looking for someone who brings to the table four things:
- Deep, authentic commitment to the entrepreneurial community in Boston
- Ability to juggle lots of initiatives quickly and flawlessly in an unstructured environment
- Creativity and marketing acumen to help raise the visibility of our portfolio companies and help the portfolio WIN
- Hunger to work with us to build something great
At NextView, we think of our jobs as “Source, Select, and Win”. We find the best entrepreneurs and teams to work with, try to select the best opportunities that fit with our POV of the future, and work really hard to help those companies WIN. This role is all about Winning, and working with the investment team to propel our firm and entrepreneurs we support further.
