ReGen Ventures is looking for an Australian based Head of Finance!

We’re looking for an exceptional human (and FinOps wizz!) to help us restore the planet from the atom up.

We recently closed our first fund; ReGen Fund I. Our team is privileged to steward capital on behalf of iconic founders from the likes of Canva, Atlassian, Tesla, Adyen, Patagonia, Rivian, and Astra Zeneca, as well as visionary institutional investors. We’re laser-focused on fulfilling our ambition to design and build an enduring, multi-generational investment firm that backs founders from idea to IPO and we’re looking to grow our team in order to make this a reality.

We are not just investing, we are building a paradigm-shifting firm. We’re looking for an ambitious Head of Finance with a founder mentality who is excited about co-creating something special over the decades ahead. Restoring our planet is not just a day job or another investment thesis, it’s core to who we are and how we live. We’d love to find someone who wants to do their life’s work alongside us.

We are a global team, headquartered in Australia. We’re looking for someone based in Australia working on East Coast time, ideally based in Byron Bay. We’re looking for someone with 4-7 years of relevant experience with CPA, CA or equivalent qualifications, preferably with some experience in fund accounting. You’ll have a passion for the climate-tech space, be hungry to learn, and can see yourself as ReGen’s next CFO. If this sounds like you, keep reading!

We’re a global fund, headquartered in Australia and California. Founded in 2021, we’ve closed our first fund and made our first 15 investments. We wear wet-suits, not suits. We love to be outdoors, and we love doing things a bit differently to your average VC firm.

We stand at a unique moment in history. A moment that future historians will look back on and marvel with disbelief that so many historically significant technologies reached critical stages of inflection in tandem. The simultaneous convergence of technological inflections combined with the infinite potential of human ingenuity makes it plausible that we can build a regenerative future in our lifetime. Our duty is to ensure we don’t squander such an opportunity.

The Role: Head of Finance

We’d love a self-starter who can define this role and make it their own. The ways in which it could evolve are limitless. Just as we love meeting founders who alter our understanding of what is possible, we want you to do the same.

Primarily, responsibilities will include:

  • Financials & Reporting:
    • Real-time financial insights: Keeping real-time accounts and providing strategic visibility across our business.
    • Quarterly accounts: Producing quarterly accounts for our fund(s) and ReGen’s management company.
    • Fund administration: Managing the capital call process, distributions and other unit register matters. You will have a direct relationship with our (un)Limited Partners (aka our investors).
    • Investor reporting: Deliver accurate quarterly NAV statements and holding statements to investors and managing investor queries pertaining to their unit holdings.
    • Managing audit/tax: Managing annual fund audit/tax processes i.e. be the primary point of contact for our auditors (PwC) and tax advisors (EY).
    • Budgeting & Payroll:** Owning and maintaining budgets and cash flow for fund entities and ReGen’s management company and running payroll.
  • Operations & Compliance:
    • Automation/Streamlining: Determining what existing and new finance processes can be improved, and then optimising and automating them.
    • Compliance: Helping ensure we are compliant with our internal policies and reporting requirements and applicable external regulations (e.g. AFSL,FATCA, CRS, ATO, US & foreign regulators).
    • Strategic projects: Leading strategic projects from time to time. This could include helping ReGen achieve certain operational assurance standards or helping bring certain outsourced operational functions in-house over time.
  • Build:
    • If ReGen were a startup, we’d have just raised our Seed round. We’ve got so much to do and build in service of our mission. We’re looking for an action-oriented superstar who loves to create, dream and execute and who will help us create a new kind of venture firm!
