Do you want to become the next leading early-stage technology investor? Or are you aiming to found or join a technology company in the future? If so, this is your opportunity to take the next step within the world of tech startups by co-shaping the Techstars Berlin Accelerator.
Techstars is a worldwide network that helps entrepreneurs succeed as they create a better future for everyone. We are on a mission to enable every person on the planet to contribute to, and benefit from, the success of entrepreneurs. And we believe breakthrough ideas can come from anywhere in the world – you don't need to be in Silicon Valley to succeed.
In line with this vision, Techstars Berlin Accelerator is now entering a new growth phase. Our aim is to build the number one launchpad for European high-growth startups. Having hired a new managing director, we are on course to take the accelerator to the next level.
The role of Venture Associate is a key part of this journey, with a focus both on program operations and investments. You will play a pivotal role in company sourcing, assessing startup applications and preparing investment decisions. You will also refine and execute the Techstars playbook to deliver the best possible program experience for founders, mentors, partners, investors and other stakeholders.
As a Venture Associate, you have the chance to broaden your network in ways you could never have imagined and receive exposure to some of the greatest early startup teams in Europe. Historically, most associates end up either being employed by a startup team, pursuing an investor career or going on to build their own companies.
Techstars is the worldwide network that helps entrepreneurs succeed. Founded in 2006, Techstars began with three simple ideas - entrepreneurs create a better future for everyone, collaboration drives innovation and great ideas can come from anywhere. Now we are on a mission to enable every person on the planet to contribute to, and benefit from, the success of entrepreneurs. In addition to operating accelerator programs and venture capital funds, we do this by connecting startups, investors, corporations and cities to help build thriving startup communities. Techstars has invested in more than 2,300 companies with a combined market cap of more than $29B.
Techstars’ mission is to help entrepreneurs succeed wherever they are in the world and whatever their background is. Regional accelerator programs all around the world are the cornerstone of the strategy. The investment approach is fundamentally driven by the worldwide network of managing directors, who interact with startup founders daily, guiding, mentoring and cultivating them along the journey. The scale of this reach results in a diversified strategy that provides investors with a uniquely qualified deal flow.
We help Techstars founders connect with other entrepreneurs, experts, mentors, alumni, investors, community leaders, and corporations to grow their companies.
