AVP is Hiring! 🤓

Click on the link below to listen to Alex Christ, a Partner at Advance Venture Partners! Asif, an Advance alum, hosted this one! Click the link below to learn about Alex’s path to becoming a partner in VC… From his first role in Morgan Stanley‘s investment banking division in the technology group, to growth equity at ICONIQ Capital, to working his way to Partner at AVP, where the team deploys ~$100 Million per year into a late-stage venture and growth stage companies like Headspace — Alex discussed breaking into VC, how to recruit from a non-traditional background, and why he chose to pursue VC over other investing roles like PE.

VP is also recruiting a VC Associate! Apply to this role if you have top investment banking/consulting/investing experience and are looking to make a move!

Prior to joining AVP in July 2015, Alex was an early member of the growth equity investing team at ICONIQ Capital, where he focused on investments in enterprise software, financial technology, and consumer e‑commerce verticals.
