Qualities you should have.
Hustle: You’re someone who doesn’t let a lack of resources get in your way; you use what you have to get far further, and faster than those with more resources and experiences. We are a startup ourselves. If you’re looking for a cushy VC job, this is not the right place.
People Skills: You are a nice person with high empathy for founders; ability to collaborate with colleagues, navigate relationships in the technology ecosystem, and ensure that all founders who interact with Hustle Fund have a great experience. We are straightforward and you should be comfortable saying “Yes” or “No” while providing useful feedback to founders.
Intense Curiosity: You love to learn and have both an insatiable hunger to learn about new technologies and business models and the ability to rapidly learn about a new domain or company category.
Analytical Skills: You have strong analytical skills and are able to understand both quantitative data and qualitative evidence as we evaluate investment opportunities, and then communicate results effectively.
Communication Skills: You can synthesize complex information and communicate in an effective way to different audiences in both verbal and written formats.
Prior Experience: You have 3-8 years of professional experience that serves as good preparation for venture capital investing, which often includes some combination of starting your own business, product management or growth marketing at a high-growth startup, investment banking, management consulting or other experiences that foster the necessary skills.
Academic Background: We’re open to a wide range of academic backgrounds but must have a basic understanding of statistics and programming.
Languages: You’re fluent in English, and ideally one or more Southeast Asian languages (Bahasa, Vietnamese, Thai, Burmese).
