Our work does not end with recommendations; in most projects, Open Capital teams oversee execution and implementation, working with all levels of client staff.

Our team is energetic and driven and we are quick to reward performance and initiative. We are open to a variety of backgrounds but top candidates will typically have the following:

  • 5-10+ years of proven experience at a top global management consulting firm, investment firm, or experience as an entrepreneur or leader in a high-growth business, with significant responsibility for deliverables and client service;
  • Significant experience leading relevant projects, including strong communication skills and analytical abilities;
  • Ability to effectively work with clients at all levels and backgrounds;
  • Interest in guiding teams and mentoring our analysts & junior team members;
