Village Capital, Leadership Development Associates

Leadership Development Program

Village Capital is seeking its first-ever class of Leadership Development Associates.
This fall, we will hire four outstanding Associates to join our team for a two-year rotational program. Program participants will work across the organization, including with senior leadership, to help us design and implement our strategic vision worldwide.
After an exceptional training program with other Leadership Development Associates in Washington, D.C., associates will participate in three rotations of approximately seven months each, based on their interests and skills spanning program operations, communications, partnerships, finance and more. 
Example rotations could include: 
Program Associate, FinTech-Mexico.
Operating on the ground in Mexico City, the Program Associate will work with Village Capital’s Latin America team to plan and deliver an outstanding entrepreneur training program for financial technology enterprises. The Associate will identify and recruit a robust pipeline of ventures, manage all program logistics and communications, and engage a community of mentors and investors to support the participating ventures. 
Finance Associate, Education-US.
The Finance Associate will serve as a financial consultant to the companies in our Education program. The Finance Associate will provide critical financial analysis and modeling support to each company to better position them for continued growth and fundraising.
Communications Associate, Village Capital-Global.
The Communications Associate will help tell the tremendous stories of our entrepreneurs — and the customers they serve — to a global audience, and will help introduce Village Capital to new entrepreneurs and partners. The Associate will work closely with our senior team to implement core elements of our strategic communications plan and produce outstanding written content.    
Partnerships Associate, Village Capital-Global.
The Partnerships Associate will play a key role in building new partnerships and strategic initiatives at Village Capital. The Associate will work to identify and recruit the next generation of Village Capital partners, support current partners worldwide through thought leadership and logistical assistance, and conduct research to deepen our sector knowledge.
Desired Qualifications
  • Open to working on the ground floor and doing a range of tasks (sales, logistics, communications, operations).

  • Authorized to work in the United States.
