We are seeking a Sector Director who will be responsible for making 10 investments a year via the newly launched hub and delivering a 6 month operational program for each startup. You will be responsible for managing a squad of Founders Factory operators to help our portfolio companies develop their technology, chart a path to find product-market fit and scale to Series A.
You will need to have extensive experience building companies and be able to give entrepreneurs in the program strong strategic advice. A big part of this role will also be making investment decisions and ensuring the portfolio has outstanding founders building novel technologies.
