Try public mutual or icapital if u can tolerate the china man style management....they do hiring fresh grad for thei analyst position. For vc i thnik they quiet unlikely will hire inexperienced ppl...u can see their netrove partners dvertisemtn in jobstreet stated tat they need atlest 3 years exp for their analyst and associate position.

Since you're not working, why don't you apply first? It's no harm going to the interview first then tell us what you thinks! biggrin.gif

Andy, I am not, but some experienced with small small PE/VC.
Not trying to say this firm is not good, but you have to do more background check before you joining any company.

There are some so-called VCs that don't even have a fund, whenever you ask them how much fund they manage, they will tell you all the non sense except how much fund under their are management.

1st question during interview with netrove was: How is your mandrin?

Needless to say, if u cant speak and write mandrin VERY FLUENTLY, dont bother going for the interview. Speaking cantonese is also a benefit.

Very short interview, 15 mins if you are shit, 30 mins if u are not so shit. Very china-man company, and the reason why Speaking / writing mandrin is compulsory is because many of the Venture capital deals they strike are China/ HK based start ups.

Their target start ups are in Technology, Bio tech, Health supplements, Online businesses. I voiced out my opinion that these industries they are invested in are among the most risky type of investments. Probably not a good idea to say that to them. BUT, its true. however, its also a high risk high reward sorta industry that require low initial start up capital. so try to impress them by saying something intellectual lah.

The company consist only 8 employees (including directors) and they are looking for just 1 additional analyst/associate. My impression after the interview is that:
IF you fail at any of these criterion, dont keep your hopes up-
1) Be able to Speak + write in mandrin
2) have experience as a Research analyst/ Investment Banker/ Corporate Finance/ Management consultancy
3) Passionate about Private Equity and Venture capital
4) Know indepth in their portfolio industries (tech, biotech, bla bla bla..)

AND Finally,
you have 15 mins to impress the interviewer, so be smart, and dont waste your chance. I know, quite alot of pressure, but thats life.

I guess many has the bad experience in the interview and met their bosses that is may be not so pleasant.
Most important, it is not professional.
I am not not sure how reward-able working there though

We find the posts here about us interesting because there is a clear interest in us and at the same time, some misunderstandings. First the misunderstandings - we are a regional tech VC and a CF house, not just a typical VC. Most starters who come for interviews are too inexperienced to understand this fusion but that is our business model. At interviews, we have different stages, earlier ones focus on skills and aptitude, later more focused on your character. No, we don’t ask questions about your first sex experience during interviews regardless of your gender. We are managed by respectable people who know where the lines are.

Finally, we pay people commensurately based on their experience and later, on proven abilities.

We also noticed that one more of the people who commented here may have been aggrieved either in not getting the job or possibly even been fired by us. So, beware what you read and who you hear from in social media like this. If you want a job and have befitting talents, why not contact us and hear from the horses’ mouth?

Dear management of Netrove, please do spare the millennials for their judgemental behaviour, for they are still in the 'discovery' phase, where they see the world only via their lenses and not other's. With obscurity, people tend to assume, and they may not make a good one.
