AV has raised over $1B to date from over 1,000 investors and is the third most active VC in the world (Pitchbook 2021) with over 900 portfolio companies. We recently won several awards, including Fast Company’s Most Innovative Companies 2022 (Financial Services) and Bezinga’s Most Innovative Personal Investment Company 2021. AV invests alongside well-known lead investors such as Sequoia, Kleiner Perkins and Bessemer. 

About CEO Services 
We are the CEOs’ partners helping them grow their businesses. We interact with incredible entrepreneurs every day, often face-to-face over video, or in person, learning about their vision and growth strategies, but also their pain points and personal journey.

The analyst position is ideal for people who are interested in venture capital but also in operations, community-building, event planning, and project management. They will have a front-row seat to the tech venture ecosystem.
