The Role

About us

Technology, academia and venture capital have collided to create enormous value in the last 50 years. But many people and problems have been left behind.

We are aiming to solve this, by making launching and investing in venture capital funds and syndicates more efficient than ever before. We want to empower individuals and communities globally to build and invest in companies the world needs.

We founded Odin in September 2020 and recently closed a pre-seed round with Haatch Ventures, Chrometec, IPQ Capital and angels like Jelle Prins (first designer/ product manager @ Uber), Sarah Drinkwater (Atomico Angel, ex head of Google Campus), Kirsten Connell (VP Octopus Ventures, ex-GM Seedcamp), Björn Wagner (co-founder of Parity and Polkadot), Matt Penneycard (co-founder of Ada Ventures), Jimmy Furland (exited founder, early investor in Bitpay and Kraken), and many more amazing founders, operators and VC's (as angels) from the European venture ecosystem and further afield.

Since launching in private beta in Aug '21, we have grown 30+% month on month, and have already helped investors deploy more than $20m since.

Join us to build Capitalism 2.0


We have a lovely office in London, just off Exmouth Market. Half of our team are based outside of the UK, and we will continue to hire exceptional team members within a 1-hour time difference.

🤲 Values

Customer obsession

We prioritise the customer experience above all else. This means as a team, we always go the extra mile for the customer, and remember they are always right!

Commitment to excellence

Always be asking yourself “Is this the best I can do? Am I proud of this?”

This is not a place to “move fast and break things”. We operate in a space (managing money) where details and reputation matter a lot. This means we should only ship things we’re proud of and hold ourselves to the very highest standards.

Focus

Most value comes from doing a few things well. Multitasking is a myth.
As a company, we are always pushing in one direction. The organisation is focused on one big thing at a time. As individuals, we focus on the highest priority task that delivers on the organisation’s key objective.

Radical candour

We value open, honest feedback delivered with kindness. Feedback is the only way to achieve true personal growth. You are not objective enough about yourself to grow effectively without external feedback. Giving and receiving feedback is hard; it often triggers painful emotions. The alternative, though, is failure.
