Startup Community Manager (m/f/d)
Business is like travelling: The interesting stuff always happens off the beaten track. This is why we set camp in Bielefeld. The widely underestimated city is not only a hidden (and beautiful) gem, it is also located in the center of one of the most interesting parts of Germany: the OWL region, home to an abundance of hidden champions. Like most corporates the local Mittelstand combines stability and success, but lacks in agility and creativity. This is where the Founders Foundation steps in: We are creating a founder-centric ecosystem and educate the next generation of tech entrepreneurs to build a bridge between the old and the new. And we need your help with that - so that we can look back one day to say: We made a difference.
Why do we need you?
Every company needs a soul. You can be that soul.
Things you'll do
Working at the Founders Foundation is fun because the people in our community are inspiring to work with. It is our concept for success and something we want to pursue. And this is where you come into play. You need us to be more specific? Sure thing, as our Startup Community Manager (F/M/D) you will:
Be the inspirational connector and soul of our Founders Community
- Make even more people fall in love with our mission and get them enthusiastic to participate in our events and programs
