Vela Partners - Venture Capital Technology Analyst (Machine Learning Engineer) (MIP)

Project Moneyball

Venture investing is not a new business. It is as old as people’s instinctive desire to explore. Imagine explorers in the 1400s raising capital to discover new places in the world. Take a step back and look at where we are today. It is thanks to those ambitious entrepreneurs and their investors. 

Though discovering America sounds glorious, entrepreneurial financing has never been easy because banks don’t lend money to high-risk ventures with no revenue. This has created a new investor type called a venture capitalist (VC). 

Today some VCs run a high-margin business due to their asymmetric network and information access. They combine this advantage with psychoanalytic skills to build relationships and assess entrepreneurs. While this asymmetry has worked for privileged entrepreneurs and investors, we believe that we’re on the verge of a significant shift that levels the playing field for all. 

First, information and network asymmetries have been disappearing due to the proliferation of data. It is now much easier to gain insight into every entrepreneur’s work history. We are also able to access market insights from thousands of early-stage companies reporting their funding publicly. Second, we are now connected to many with an only few degrees of connection. Finally, we can assess anyone in the world through modern telecommunications. And this trend will only continue: there will be ever more data and better communication tools over time. 

We take advantage of datasets to pioneer a new category of VC investing called VenTech (Venture Tech). As the pioneers of this category, we:

  1. Collect datasets about every startup in the market.
  2. Use AI and any emerging tech to cut down on time and discover non-obvious insights.
  3. Build internal tools and processes to augment each partner’s ability to source, evaluate, invest, refer, fundraise, hire, network and support portfolio companies more efficiently. 

The Project Moneyball scope for the micro-internship is given below:

  1. You'll be provided a dataset of "successful" and "unsuccessful" companies alongside their attributes.
  2. Your task will be to find correlations and build a model to predict the success rate of entrepreneurs, markets and startups.

Though discovering America sounds glorious, entrepreneurial financing has never been easy because banks don’t lend money to high-risk ventures with no revenue. This has created a new investor type called a venture capitalist (VC). 

Today some VCs run a high-margin business due to their asymmetric network and information access. They combine this advantage with psychoanalytic skills to build relationships and assess entrepreneurs. While this asymmetry has worked for privileged entrepreneurs and investors, we believe that we’re on the verge of a significant shift that levels the playing field for all. 

First, information and network asymmetries have been disappearing due to the proliferation of data. It is now much easier to gain insight into every entrepreneur’s work history. We are also able to access market insights from thousands of early-stage companies reporting their funding publicly. Second, we are now connected to many with an only few degrees of connection. Finally, we can assess anyone in the world through modern telecommunications. And this trend will only continue: there will be ever more data and better communication tools over time. 

We take advantage of datasets to pioneer a new category of VC investing called VenTech (Venture Tech). As the pioneers of this category, we:

  1. Collect datasets about every startup in the market.
  2. Use AI and any emerging tech to cut down on time and discover non-obvious insights.
  3. Build internal tools and processes to augment each partner’s ability to source, evaluate, invest, refer, fundraise, hire, network and support portfolio companies more efficiently. 

The Project Moneyball scope for the micro-internship is given below:

  1. You'll be provided a dataset of "successful" and "unsuccessful" companies alongside their attributes.
  2. Your task will be to find correlations and build a model to predict the success rate of entrepreneurs, markets and startups. 

Brand Conscience - Sustainability & Circularity Education Researcher (MIP)

About usWe measure what matters at a product level, in the fashion industry. We have been reviewing the industry at a brand level and want to shake that up too. There are a number of indices and we have found the same issue with measuring products – the complexity is overwhelming, can be used as a smoke screen and consumers don’t have time to research before they shop. We want to simplify this and create a service that supports informed choices for consumers and investors.

The role:  We would like to deliver a module for students/ graduates that are interested in a career in sustainability & circularity. We want to support starters in industry with an overview at a sensible accessible price that creates value, is interactive and can be done online. The research needed would include, what knowledge do businesses ask for, what is important, what legislation exists in UK and EU, what high level areas and how deep should we dive in the areas. We know carbon emissions are not the only thing, what else is important, what terminology should they learn, what matters the most, what areas of general business and how it intersects and impacts  with sustainability & circulatory would they need to know to be able to start a role where they hadn't undertaken a specific Sustainability focused degree or study.  

Ideally we will have more than 1 applicant/ intern and work in pairs or threes as we have found this to be both effective and a great experience for interns. 

Outputs:

1)A research paper and 

2)a set of questions and answers that support the needs of what an individual would need to know to start their career. 

3) Outline / layout the educational module.

It’s trickier than it would first appear. Most homeschooling happens in the USA - so that throws out a lot of chaff in the search results. We’re a micro business with limited marketing budget. We need a collaborative person who's prepared to think creatively to  connect us with the audience. It’s a micro internship - so you have just 5 working days to make an impact and leave us with some of the following...

  • a high quality list of contacts (influencers/websites/bloggers/podcasters/streamers etc) in the UK homeschooling/gifted/ education space
  • a sustainable promotion or competition that can generate email leads (GDPR compliant)
  • a strategy for growing our subscriber base (on a microbudget) 

Mogzilla - Video Editor/Creator (MIP)

Mogzilla is a UK independent publisher specialising in content for children and teens.

Don’t be surprised if you bump into Mogzilla in unlikely places like London’s Greenwich market, The Globe theatre, a local festival or a Comic Con. We have distribution via Booksource and international representation via MMS. In 2016 Mogzilla founder Robin Price launched Creative Writing Club www.creativewritingclub.co.uk - a writing resources website designed to make writing fast and fun. We intend to expand into the educational space - via a range of events and workshops for parents. Our current titles can be viewed at www.mogzilla.co.uk

After receiving your track(s) you'll have 5 days to get the footage together and create a video using Filmora (or similar software) add the lyrics as subtitles and if there's time, you'll upload the results of your labour to You Tube, Odysee etc.

Mashpi Reserve / Mashpi Lodge - Research Assistant (MIP)

Located in the Choco Bioregion, Mashpi Lodge is a luxury nature lodge and one of the most biologically diverse places on Earth. The reserve surrounding this hotel in the rainforest is home to over 400 species of birds, alongside numerous species of trees and frogs that cannot be found anywhere else in the world. Additionally, its amazing topography includes waterfalls and distinctly unique flora that  makes a trek through the forest an unforgettable journey. The Research and Biology Department at the Mashpi Reserve is offering the opportunity to engage in a project involving long-term ecological monitoring.

As a result of Mashpi Lodge’s Research & Biology Program (R&B), we have given scientific training and skills and capacity building to all of our guides and the staff of R&B. This has been an incredible opportunity for our staff, for their academic, professional and personal development. We believe this knowledge and opportunities can be extended to the surrounding communities of Mashpi Reserve. This is the core vision for promoting and creating a Para-Biologist School (PS). This type of education will enhance and take advantage of people’s life history: people growing up in nature and in biodiverse places such as Mashpi region, have a special connection to nature as well as very important skills and knowledge about its plants, animals and ecology. Most times this knowledge is purely empirical, therefore the PS should complement this with formal/technical knowledge. This will allow this persons to be skillful candidates for projects such as wildlife mgmt. and breeding, research assistants, field assistants, etc. An example are the para-biologists of Mashpi Lodge’s R&B Program that run the Lifecenter (www.mashpilodge.com/explorations/the-life-centre/), where they breed 10 to 15 different butterfly species, as well as the host plants needed to sustain these populations.

Vela Partners - Venture Capital Technology Analyst (Machine Learning Engineer) (MIP)

Project Moneyball

Venture investing is not a new business. It is as old as people’s instinctive desire to explore. Imagine explorers in the 1400s raising capital to discover new places in the world. Take a step back and look at where we are today. It is thanks to those ambitious entrepreneurs and their investors. 

Though discovering America sounds glorious, entrepreneurial financing has never been easy because banks don’t lend money to high-risk ventures with no revenue. This has created a new investor type called a venture capitalist (VC). 

Today some VCs run a high-margin business due to their asymmetric network and information access. They combine this advantage with psychoanalytic skills to build relationships and assess entrepreneurs. While this asymmetry has worked for privileged entrepreneurs and investors, we believe that we’re on the verge of a significant shift that levels the playing field for all. 

First, information and network asymmetries have been disappearing due to the proliferation of data. It is now much easier to gain insight into every entrepreneur’s work history. We are also able to access market insights from thousands of early-stage companies reporting their funding publicly. Second, we are now connected to many with an only few degrees of connection. Finally, we can assess anyone in the world through modern telecommunications. And this trend will only continue: there will be ever more data and better communication tools over time. 

We take advantage of datasets to pioneer a new category of VC investing called VenTech (Venture Tech). As the pioneers of this category, we:

  1. Collect datasets about every startup in the market.
  2. Use AI and any emerging tech to cut down on time and discover non-obvious insights.
  3. Build internal tools and processes to augment each partner’s ability to source, evaluate, invest, refer, fundraise, hire, network and support portfolio companies more efficiently. 

The Project Moneyball scope for the micro-internship is given below:

  1. You'll be provided a dataset of "successful" and "unsuccessful" companies alongside their attributes.
  2. Your task will be to find correlations and build a model to predict the success rate of entrepreneurs, markets and startups.
