are you…

fascinated by startups? interested in venture capital? ready to work with amsterdam’s most talented student founders?


If the answer to any of the above is “Yes” (or even better: “F*CK YEAH”) then…

you're a perfect fit for a board year at ASIF ventures.


Starting this summer, you — and four colleagues — will have the chance to run Amsterdam’s first student-focused venture capital fund; invest in student startups, ignite and support entrepreneurship, & beyond. 1 year. Full time.


just so you know…

all five board members share the responsibility of running the investment side of the fund.

this includes:

  • Sourcing the most interesting student startups

  • Meeting founders & listening to their pitches

  • Creating written assessments of startups’ strengths & weaknesses

  • And most importantly: making the investment decision

Supporting student entrepreneurs and making successful investments is ASIF Venture’s primary focus and therefore shared between all board members.

additionally, each board member has their own area of focus that comes with specific responsibilities.

here are the “fab five”…



As the President, you’ll represent the fund towards our private and public investors, the media, and other external parties. You’re also in charge of setting the long-term vision for the fund and making sure that everyone is working towards the same goal.


  • Be the first contact point for ASIF’s investors.

  • Set the long-term strategy of the fund and make sure that everyone is on track to achieve their individual goals.

  • Be the face of the organization; go to speaking opportunities and find ways to get ASIF’s message out there.

  • Support the other director in their activities.

As our community director, you will be in charge of the social side of ASIF, including the ASIF Community and all the events we organize. Your main tasks will be to oversee the four different student teams (P!TCH, Masterclass, Startup Crawl and Common Ground), which makes you responsible for the management of 25+ students. Next to that, you will organize and run the ASIF recruitment campaigns, thinking creatively to make sure we get the best and brightest on board. Grow our initiatives to hundreds (or even thousands?!) of attendees, come up with new formats, organize the best borrels, and build the entrepreneurial community in Amsterdam! You think you're up for it?

As the Finance & Operations Director, your task is to make sure that ASIF is run just as well as an organization as we come to expect from our portfolio companies. Controlling the internal finances, smoothing out our operations, and managing ASIF’s portfolio will be your key tasks. In addition, together with the President, you will play a crucial role in the communication to all of our investors - both public and private. Are you ready to manage the finances of a million euro fund and make ASIF’s operations top notch?


  • Manage internal finances, by deciding on the year budgets, controlling the cashflow and making sure ASIF is a financially healthy organization.

  • Oversee and improve all operations and processes in the organization.
