As well as providing primary capital to support companies’ growth, we acquire direct positions in those companies from founders, employees, business angels, corporates, venture capital funds and other institutional investors via secondary transactions - providing liquidity to the start-up ecosystem.

The role will be based either in TempoCap’s offices near Soho, London, or in Paris with the new team member supporting the establishment of a new Paris office for the firm (ideally after 6 months based in London).

  • High personal and professional integrity.
  • Creativity and tenacity in analysis and problem solving.
  • Curious, ambitious, team player with an international mindset.
  • Bilingual: fluent in English and French.
  Your work:
  • You will be sourcing, executing and monitoring investments for TempoCap, and providing regular support to portfolio companies:
    • Systematic and strategic sourcing of new investments for TempoCap – spanning both later-stage individual company investments (via primary and/or secondary transactions) and portfolio investments (acquiring positions from other venture capital funds and corporate VCs).
    • Leading the evaluation, analysis and execution of those investments, with support from the wider TempoCap team.
    • Managing and monitoring investments as a board director or observer, with continuous efforts to provide value to investee companies utilising TempoCap’s value-add toolkit and your own network.
  • You will also work on ad-hoc projects to support TempoCap’s continued growth, including regular meetings with TempoCap’s own investors.
  • You will be part of TempoCap weekly Investment Committee
  Why TempoCap?
  • You will have the opportunity to open the Paris office and lead TempoCap in France.
  • This role will provide an opportunity to help shape a key component of the developing venture capital ecosystem in Europe.
  • TempoCap’s growing team has an international outlook, a clear common purpose and an informal atmosphere in which everyone has an opportunity to contribute.
  • Highly competitive remuneration package with long-term incentives.
