Founded in 2017, Toyota Ventures is a Silicon Valley-based venture capital firm with more than $500M assets under management that invests in early-stage startups around the world in frontier and climate technologies. We are on a mission to discover what’s next for Toyota by helping startups bring ground-breaking technologies and business models to market quickly. We’ve invested in over 50 companies, including Bipi (acquired), Blackmore (acquired), Carbice, Intuition Robotics, Joby Aviation (NYSE: Joby), May Mobility, Nauto, Near Space Labs, Revel, SLAMcore, and Ziva Dynamics (acquired).
Our portfolio companies are our customers. Their success is our success, and we’re looking for a customer-focused professional who is passionate about startups to join our Platform team and support portfolio companies that we invest in through our Climate Fund. Being comfortable working with senior executives at our portfolio companies is a must. As the portfolio engagement lead for the Climate Fund, you will assist startup teams, championing their needs and supporting their growth in areas like customer and business development. You’ll also serve as a liaison, connecting them with people and resources within Toyota and the industry at large.
Our team values acting with integrity and empathy, being humble but bold, and keeping it weird. We’re also committed to promoting diversity, equity and inclusion within our team, portfolio, and the larger VC industry. Please note that we are primarily remote for now, but we are based in the San Francisco Bay Area and this role will require some travel in the future.
