Meet Audacious

Audacious Ventures is an early stage venture firm where we have a simple mandate – to invest in the most ambitious founders in the world, and help them achieve their most audacious goals.

Our foundational belief is that the most important ingredient of startup success is a high density of A+ people at the center of the company. Accordingly, we focus on two jobs:

  1. Partnering with force of nature founders.
  2. Helping them recruit an A+ team.

Then we get out of the way. You can read more about our ethos here.


Audacious is expanding the investment team and hiring an associate. This hire will be primarily responsible for helping us with deal sourcing.

Ultimately, we’re in the business of finding outlier founders. Accordingly, sourcing is the lifeblood of what we do at Audacious. You will be working at the heart of this effort at the firm.

What you will do:

  • Identify outlier founders and innovative ideas in B2B software for the firm to invest in.
  • You will be given significant autonomy and responsibilities on deal sourcing efforts. Your ability to distinguish which networks to spend time with will be crucial. We will mentor and guide you here.
  • Develop an exceptional network with force of nature founders, operators, and angels.
  • Figure out systematic and repeatable strategies to improve deal sourcing at a firm level.

Who you are:

  • 0-3 years of experience at a fast growing tech startup or company. Internships or full-time.
  • Bring an existing and actionable network. Whether it is from full time roles, internships, undergrad, or extracurricular activities/initiatives.
  • Have demonstrated the ability to build a network of potential seed stage founders.
  • Bias towards action is your default state.
  • Preferably technical, whether through work, school, and/or side projects.

Why Join Audacious?

This is a high agency opportunity. We’re driven by impact, not process. We do whatever it takes to get in front of excellent founders, and we’ll empower you to do the same. We’re looking for someone who is ‘spiky’: i.e. especially strong in one or two areas; not a jack-of-all-trades.

We believe there’s a magnetism to exceptional people — our ideal candidate will become the eye of the storm for the next generation of talent between founders, operators, and other investors.

And we’re not interested in just helping our portfolio founders achieve their goals. We’re similarly committed to helping you grow and reach your own ambitions, whatever they may be. If you’re energized by the possibility of finding the next category defining startup, and can balance high hustle & intellectual strength, then we want to work with you.
