leAD – “legacy of Adi Dassler” – is a Berlin based Sports Accelerator with a program focused on funding and supporting innovative early-stage sports startups.
For our founders Klaus, Horst and Stefan Bente, Adi Dassler was not only their grandfather but also a vital role model: his sense of family, his visionary, inventive and entrepreneurial genius as well as his business standards and commitment to excellence shaped them to this date. He inspired them to gather a group of key players in sports and found leAD. Their credo: Bring together not only some of the most sought after experts from the sports industry, but also follow an interdisciplinary approach to make our founders better founders, leaders and team players.
2017 was a fantastic start for leAD. Out of 480 applications from all over the world, the best 15 joined us for the very first batch in Berlin. And while we’re getting ready for our first Demo Day, we’re already preparing for next year’s program. Our application phase is starting in February, and we’ll be again looking for the most interesting startups in sports innovation around the globe – but to find them, we need you!
You are a rockstar in finding the latest startup gems in the sports industry. Your role will involve researching sports innovation around the world, reaching out to to new contacts, designing the recruitment strategy, helping develop a streamlined and consistent application and evaluations system, and interviewing candidates for the program. For all of that, you will work closely with the Head of Program.
Not exactly you? Job descriptions rarely ever describe people (that’s why they’re called job descriptions). If you’re seriously excited about the job but lacking 2-3 things, get in touch anyways and we’ll see whether / how we can make it work.
