Nascent is a team of builders who back early-stage web3 founders creating products and primitives for an open financial world. Founded in 2020, we've invested in 50+ early-stage teams that we believe have the potential to create substantive change, expand boundaries and find new horizons. Building from a base of permanent capital, we also deploy a sizable liquid portfolio utilizing a range of strategies that ensure we are among the most active users of the open financial system we are helping to build. The fluid structure that enables our team to build, use, and invest in the future of crypto makes Nascent both an ideal early-stage partner and long-term ally.
The Nascent venture team is on the hunt for a new team member to help research, identify, and source investment opportunities in promising early-stage web3 products and protocols. Working directly with our Co-Founder, the Venture Analyst will play a critical role in tracking technical and market developments, developing investment theses, stewarding and managing relationships, conducting diligence and technical analysis, and providing hands-on post-investment support. If you can go from 0 to 1 in understanding a problem and identifying the process and frameworks to analyze and form a technically-oriented perspective, we want to meet you.
This is an opportunity to make a direct impact on the bottom line of a crypto-native multi-strategy firm with a strong VC presence, engineering organization, and liquid trading operation. This may be the right opportunity for you if you're a scrappy and dynamic human with the hunger to learn and drive to win as crypto becomes an integral part of global infrastructure.

We’re a fully distributed team that understands the value of in-person time—we host two team retreats per year and encourage team members to come together for more frequent in-person work.
