Lux Capital Due Diligence Opportunity

Lux Capital, with over $350M under management, is a research-driven VC firm focused on founding, seed and early stage investments in the physical and life sciences. Lux is excited to work with a few select members of Virginia Venture Fund on a due diligence research project this spring. 

The projects will involve doing research and making a presentation to the Lux Capital team.  Lux Capital is looking for students who thrive with limited structure/guidance who can take initiative and work creatively to construct and present a deep industry dive on the firm's two area's of interest.

One project deals with the Bionics Industry and will be working for General Partner Adam Kalish. The other project will be looking at the future of the Tattoo Industry with regard to biology, photochemistry, and futuristic methods and alternatives for tattoos and will be supervised by Partner Zack Schildhorn. 

This is an unparalleled experience to learn about venture investing and gain exposure with a top-tier VC firm that actively hires summer interns in early April. We will select 4 students to participate in the projects; if you are interested please send a resume and 1 paragraph statement of interest to meb3ty@virginia.edu with the subject "Lux Capital Application" by Friday 2/6 at 5:00 pm.
