The Associate role is a great opportunity for a curious, research driven individual with a passion for impact to play a major role in shaping our approach.
The role will cover three connected areas:
1. Thought leadership: lead on impact content creation (Reports, podcasts, industry standards) and become a well networked thought leader within the commercial impact space that is an active participant within the community
2. Research: researching emerging technologies that have the potential to lead to step changes in sustainability (For example hydrogen). Using this research to raise Eka’s profile in the investment market and with founders as well as identifying potential investments.
3. Impact assessment: building an approach to impact screening, assessment and reporting. We currently use the IMP framework and connect this to the UN SDGs. We would like to build on this initial approach with a more data led assessment, particularly with regards to analysis of product life cycles and health outcomes. This part of the role will involve working closely with Jon and Camilla on investments, Eka’s data associate and the management teams of our portfolio and prospective investments.
