Job Description

“10x Founders” is a new and innovative European venture company backing early-stage entrepreneurs on their journey of building global companies. Our partners are a team of very successful serial entrepreneurs and accomplished investors with an outstanding investment track record. We genuinely enjoy and are motivated by giving back to, supporting, and collaborating with entrepreneurs and their teams to create global leaders. At the same time, we have the ambition to establish a creative new venture fund that helps to bring European start-ups and entrepreneurship to the forefront of the European and global economy.

The role will allow you to meet entrepreneurs and companies, e.g. also at start-up conferences, cultivating honest trust between them and 10x Founders. It would also mean that you should develop and share a qualified point of view. Second, you should help nurture proper processes and procedures for 10x Founders’ company screening and tracking efforts, in order to help us establish a scalable infrastructure that allows the handling of many dozens of possible investments. Additionally, you support us with building, configuring, and improving tools that support our other fund processes.

  • Ability to structure your thinking and document this, as well as help to structure internal processes
  • Curiosity to understand new, dynamic and fast-moving developments in technology, digital products and innovation
  • Past exposure to and demonstrated interest in start-ups or venture investments
  • Sensitivity towards and motivation to working with early-stage entrepreneurs and companies
  • Ability to speak to entrepreneurs and VC partners eye-to-eye
  • Maybe you even have some technical knowledge of database/programming languages (no problem if not)
  • Flexible, friendly, and positive can-do attitude


Benefits

  • Working with an excellent, experienced and collaborative high-performance team of entrepreneurs and investors without hierarchies
  • Ability to learn and grow, and build your track record and career in the early-stage venture industry
  • Flexible working conditions, e.g. work from home, allowing for a healthy work-life balance
