We’re looking for a Seed Funds manager. Do you have what it takes?

by Dr Anne Dobree

Cambridge is buzzing with new start-up companies, in both life sciences and tech. Last year was a particularly busy one for Cambridge Enterprise Seed Funds, which broke investment records for the third consecutive year, and already Cambridge Accelerator has hosted a Life Sciences focused Pitch at the Palace. It’s wall-to-wall entrepreneurship.

All of this activity means there are more companies searching for funding, and as a result, we are expanding our Seed Funds team, looking for an additional Investment Manager to support investment in new life science companies emerging from the University.

This team member will be a critical part in getting companies started, bringing together management teams to develop business plans, getting companies investment-ready and providing the cash to fund their first days.

I like to think of our team at Cambridge Enterprise as parents: once we have overseen the successful birth of a company, we get to nurture it through the toddler years, watching and helping as the company develops and grows. When it’s a successful fully-formed business, we step back and focus on the next opportunity. This role brings huge levels of autonomy, responsibility and satisfaction in creating something that can make a real difference to the world at large.

We are working with Bailey Fisher Executive Search on this role. If you would like to find out more about the role or are interested in applying, please contact Claire Button, Director – Life Sciences & Healthcare. We’re open to considering part time employees or job share, and look forward to showing you the next great life science businesses of Cambridge.
