Ben Berman

Analyst, Westwood Ventures

As a Venture Analyst with Alumni Ventures, I have been fortunate to work on every stage of the deal lifecycle: from sourcing and diligence to portfolio management. The AV team and my Managing Partner have continuously encouraged and supported my professional development and have allowed me to build a strong foundation as a venture capitalist. The Analyst program has exceeded my expectations across the board and is the perfect place to start a career in VC.

Analyst, Triphammer Ventures

Since starting the Venture Corps program, I’ve grown my network, gained skills and knowledge in the VC industry, and discovered several sectors I find most compelling. Every day looks different but my role is primarily divided in three parts: sourcing deals (networking with other VCs, entrepreneurs, and incubators, outreach and qualifying pitches), due diligence (evaluating different startups and industries as a potential investment, drafting memos for my team and Investment Committee), and portfolio management (tracking a company’s activity and progress).  AV has provided the tools and support I need to grow and learn in the VC space that I find to be incredibly valuable as a recent college graduate.
