Lucas Bagno
Interested in Intermediate Finance & Intermediate Operations roles
I want to switch to Venture full-time and work with experienced GPs. I want to make a career in the Venture space and am ready to give you 100%.

I am incredibly passionate about Venture Capital and have been involved with the industry for the last 3 years, through a very unconventional path, and have made many investments. I'm very driven, a self-starter, and want to make a career in this space. By joining a firm, I can:

  • Drive additional deal flow through existing relationships and consistent, high-quality outbound
  • Leverage the hundreds of relationships with VCs and angel investors I've built over the years
  • Perform extensive research and due diligence, either independently or with the team
  • Help with the fundraising process
