With our funding programmes and our venture capital funds, we provide young, innovative companies with seed capital. In addition, we bring founders and investors together with the Hamburg Investors Network. To date, we have financed more than 350 start-ups in Hamburg. In the course of the Covid-19 pandemic, we were entrusted with the management of the Corona Recovery Fund (CRF). The CRF has helped a large number of start-ups with silent participations that had run into financial difficulties due to the pandemic. Now that the investment phase has been completed, the CRF is in the support phase.

We are looking for an Investment Manager (m/f/d) for varied and challenging tasks in a small and dynamic team.

  • Representing CRF interests and actively shaping solutions in the context of special situations such as exits, contract adjustments or other special issues

  • Ongoing support of our CRF investments with monitoring of contractual requirements

  • Coordination and, if necessary, negotiation with start-ups and their stakeholders, in particular regarding measures requiring approval

  • Reviewing reports and financial plans and identifying any need for action

  • Supporting ongoing and regular reporting

Your profile

After your degree in economics, preferably with a specialisation in finance, accounting, banking or banking training, you have already gained professional experience in the field of financing (corporate clients), venture capital or investment management or have worked in a start-up yourself. We would also like to see

  • Initial experience in analysing and evaluating companies and in monitoring/supporting investments

  • Basic financial knowledge

  • A good understanding of business contexts

  • Negotiation skills and hands-on mentality

  • Quick comprehension, strong communication skills, flexibility and ability to work in a team

  • Convincing demeanour and a goal-oriented, proactive way of working

  • Confident MS Office user skills (Excel, Word and PowerPoint)

  • Team spirit, enthusiasm and enjoy working in an agile working environment

Our offer - your opportunity

As part of the IFB Innovationsstarter GmbH team, we offer you a unique insight into the Hamburg start-up scene as well as innovative business ideas and current technologies in all sectors. You will also have the opportunity to support young and promising start-ups. You can also look forward to flexible working hours, opportunities for mobile working, a dynamic working environment, flat hierarchies and room for manoeuvre in a responsible role. We also offer a subsidy for public transport/Germany ticket. The position is permanent and employment can be full-time or part-time. Payment is based on the TVöD.
