Jump start your career into the VC world

Are you interested in learning the ins and outs of venture investing at the forefront of science and technology? Are you a scientist or a young entrepreneur and ever wondered how venture firms scout for new ideas, analyze companies, create and support their portfolio companies?
Then the M Ventures Fellowship might be what you are looking for!

M Ventures is seeking candidates with a strong scientific background, early business experience, and an entrepreneurial spirit to join our six-month fellowship program at our headquarters in Amsterdam, Netherlands, or at our offices in Darmstadt, Germany or Boston, MA, USA. M Ventures encourages applicants to apply from all backgrounds, and remains firmly committed to diversity and inclusion and this commitment includes increasing the pipeline of diverse professionals in STEM fields.

Over the course of six months you will become engaged in the entire life cycle of startups that form the innovation pipeline of our fund. Using your scientific and/or entrepreneurial background, you will scout new ventures and perform analyses of innovation landscapes. In our deal flow meetings, you will discuss startups and help select those that make it into the deeper due diligence stage. Here you will help our teams in investigating a variety of details of prospective investments (due diligence) and compile your findings in investment proposals. On top, you will gain experience in the support of portfolio companies and help prepare follow-on investments to grow those companies to the next stage in their life cycles. For all tasks, you will work closely with our associates, principals and our senior management.

You will gain exposure to our broad network of entrepreneurs, portfolio companies, venture capital firms, and larger companies in addition to Merck KGaA, Darmstadt, Germany. While we will count on you to enrich our team with your skills, the educational focus of our fellowship program will help you enter the world of venture capital, either as a future entrepreneur or investor.
