About Growth Calculus

Growth Calculus is a different kind of investment firm. We infuse growth capital and hands-on consulting expertise to catapult growth and achieve new levels of valuation. The founders are successful business operators and consultants who know how to help entrepreneurs overcome challenges that impede growth.

We’re growing our team of consultants to work with our Service Evolution Fund portfolio companies to plan and execute growth strategies for accelerated results. These privately held companies are not startups – they have been successfully operating for years with revenues up to $30MM. They are specialized marketing services companies in the U.S. or Canada with an opportunity to productize internal/external capabilities leveraging data, analytics and/or technology for greater scale and growth trajectories.

About the role & opportunity

This is a unique opportunity for an experienced Financial Analyst to help build our private equity firm as we complete the capital raise and are actively evaluating investments.

You’ll work directly with the managing partners and operate in some of the most dynamic and fast-growing sectors of the marketing ecosystem.

  • Conduct due diligence on prospective portfolio companies with a rigorous and comprehensive approach
  • Develop and maintain dynamic financial models
  • Help with valuation of potential portfolio companies as well as transaction execution
