The Partner will be expected to develop and drive an investment thesis designed to leverage SeedInvest’s sizable deal flow and its unique network of 250,000 investors to maximize returns,” the listing stated.

The new position will also require to run the fund’s day-to-day operations, including spearheading major fundraising initiatives, sourcing investment opportunities, and expanding and supervising the investment team.

Founded in 2012, SeedInvest has supported over 150 startups to date. The New York-based platform was acquired by Circle in March, which made it a fully Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC)-regulated broker-dealer. The deal also enabled SeedInvest to extend its offerings to support cryptocurrencies and issue tokenizes securities, under the supervision of the SEC and Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA).
