This position will work closely with the Head of Co-Investments and the Chief Investment Officer to develop and execute MCP's investment strategy, which is primarily focused on minority investments in growth-stage companies advancing decarbonization and the energy transition. You will support the diligence, structuring, and execution of investments, as well as portfolio monitoring and reporting.

About Mobilize Capital Partners

Mobilize Capital Partners was founded after recognizing that the sustainable investment movement has failed to connect with one of the largest and most influential pools of capital in the world - U.S. Families that fall below the level of Single-Family Office wealth but meet the Qualified Purchaser and Accredited Investor thresholds. This highly aligned, motivated pool of capital and people (> $3 trillion of assets held by >10 Million U.S. families), along with their critical partner, the independent RIA, will be a significant catalyst to mobilize billions of dollars to help transition the world to a sustainable and equitable economy. However, MCP recognizes that world-class investments alone are not enough to mobilize this group. In order to fully leverage this opportunity, MCP has constructed a distinctive model that seamlessly integrates advanced client engagement techniques and investor services, meticulously tailored to cater to the specific needs of the RIA community and its client families.
