GMPVC is looking for an Associate

GMPVC German Media Pool GmbH

We are growing and looking for an Associate to grow with us!

GMPVC German Media Pool is a new hybrid in the venture capital landscape. We invest in promising, young internet companies. Instead of cash financing, we provide these startups with large advertising campaigns. We have eight portfolio companies and three media partners.

The media for equity model we have pioneered in Germany has been featured in The Economist, The Financial Times, TechCrunch and other leading publications. It is a venture capital innovation made in Europe.

If you join us as an Associate, you will gain valuable knowledge and experience in two important areas: Venture capital and media. Our day-to-day business includes screening targets, negotiating contracts and media operations for campaigns involving TV, radio and billboard advertising.

GMPVC is based in Berlin, one of the main startup hubs of Europe.

We are looking for an Associate who is hungry to learn about venture capital and media but also does not mind getting his or her hands dirty in day-to-day work.

Above all, we want somebody who is excited about helping to shape the disruptive world of seed investments in Europe. German language would be great for communicating with partners, but not mandatory. If you have some experience at a startup, a media group, a consulting or investment firm – this would be great.

We would like to begin our relationship with a one month paid trial-run to begin ASAP. Please send your application (short CV, link to LinkedIn or Xing and Twitter handle) to joinus@gmpvc.com by latest 15 March 2013 at the latest. Oh, and one more thing: We’d love to hear which company you think should be the next GMPVC investment and why. No need for an essay – a few short sentences or bullets would be great.

We look forward to hearing from you!
Aljoscha and Niko
