We are a venture studio and we are a family of impact funds. We partner with incredible entrepreneurs, universities, and corporates to create solutions that have a positive impact on society and the planet. We have our own impact investment funds that enable us to execute fast and focused together with co-founders and strategic partners. We focus on building ventures within health and well-being or sustainable energy.
At KRING, we seek people who are inspired and driven by the challenges of our society and never stop working towards the better. We seek people that thrive in uncertainty and speed and people who can turn problems into valuable solutions and scalable business models. We may not be able to change the world on our own. But we can do ours to take steps in the right direction through the ventures we build. That is why we believe that the best way to predict the future is to create it.
We are looking for our new venture capital partner to lead and be the primary, internally responsible for the capitalization of our portfolio companies. This entails driving the value creation, capital structures, and development of the portfolio companies – from early-stage concept to final exit. You will provide assistance at liquidity events at our portfolio companies.
You will participate in portfolio companies’ boards (when and where relevant), with a strong focus on value creation, funding strategy, and capitalization.
Leading and hands-on driving capitalization strategy and processes for our portfolio companies – early-stage startups (capital allocation, M&A, fundraising, and exit preparation)
Building relationships with potential capitalization and exit partners (VC funds, PE funds, etc.)
Performance management and reporting of metrics from portfolio companies
Sparring partner to our portfolio companies' leadership teams (often co-funders)

Capability Building in KRING (processes, tools, templates, skills, systems, playbooks)
Vast hands-on experience from working with capital structures, venture capital, and fund-raising processes
Experience with exits and/or M&A
Negotiation skills and experience from capitalization processes

High personal drive motivation, entrepreneurial drive
Well-versed in start-up metrics
Have interest and/or knowledge from at least one of our two focus areas; “Health & Well-being” and/or “Clean sustainable Energy”
Working at KRING:
Our team is small and experienced, and our network is big and powerful. We are a super ambitious bunch and perhaps some people would consider us crazy. We meditate with brain scanners, discuss various tests for optimal health, and wonder why the human race is destroying the earth.
However, we want to take part in ensuring that humans actually are a force for good, for each other, and for this beautiful planet. We start with ourselves: We have weekly runs, CrossFit in the park, healthy eating, sustainable sessions, and of course also the normal casual talks and loads of fun.
