Who we are
Seedstars is a global organization with headquarters in Switzerland and a presence in 60+ emerging markets. We are on a mission to impact people’s lives in emerging markets through technology and entrepreneurship. Our initiatives are focused on connecting stakeholders within these ecosystems, building tech companies from scratch and investing in the top entrepreneurs.
About the job
Your main job will be launching the operations of Seedstars and setting up “small autonomous venture builder” units to test, launch and grow new tech companies with us in different locations. The venture builder operates as a country holding, which has the objective to develop the entrepreneurial ecosystem and build a diversified portfolio of high growth tech companies solving real "pains" rather than "vitamins".
You will be on the ground to help setup a country holding for maximum 3-6 months/ mission, with the main responsibility to:
1. Test different ideas by building MVPs, while looking for a problem - solution fit
2. Find, train and grow a local team to lead the venture building aspect after your mission is completed
This is a very entrepreneurial role, since you will be responsible for launching different tech companies at the same time.
We believe in the power of teams, so you will be working in a "SWAT team" of 3 - 4 people, with each person having a clear responsibility and expertise, in the areas of:
Before applying, please keep in mind that at this stage we are looking for more specialists (in the areas mentioned above) rather than generalists.
Your key responsibilities:

(B) Seedstars Country Set Up (together with your team)
(C) Scout, recruit and form teams locally, test mindset and expectations
We are currently looking for people to travel in "missions" of 6 months (or already be based) in the following locations:
