Founders Foundation gGmbH

Senior Startup Coach (F/M/D)

Contract
Bielefeld, Germany
Social Services / Non-Profit

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.

Everybody needs somebody to look up to. At the Founders Foundation you can be that role model and teach our talents how things are done as an entrepreneur in general and in the startup world in particular.

Things you'll do

Working at Founders Foundation means changing the status quo. You need us to be more specific? Sure thing, as our Senior Startup Coach (F/M/D) you will:

  • Mentor startups from the idea to the Problem-Solution Fit
  • Support our Founders Academy - especially our mentors and teams
  • Be a part of our Talent Acquisition and Development Team (fill our funnel from talents to startups with AAA+ people)
  • Be responsible for follow-up sessions with our talents and startups
  • Be the motivator who pushes our entrepreneurial talents to be the best version of themselves

About you

Working at Founders Foundation is fun because the people here are inspiring to work with. It is our concept for success and something we want to pursue. You are the coach we are looking for when you have:

  • Extensive startup experience as a founder, startup coach or experience as a successful mentor/coach
  • Experience in building technology based startups/teams
  • Deep knowledge of the accelerator market - ideally several years of professional experience in coaching and training in an accelerator, incubator or other dynamic startup environment with proven track record in building successful teams and ventures (e.g. Techstars, 500 Startups, Plug & Play, Y-Combinator, )
  • An International mindset and a passion for startups
  • A profound awareness of the national and international founders’ scene
  • An Entrepreneurial mind-set with strong analytical and conceptual skills
  • A natural talent to motivate people to become the best version of themselves

What's in it for you?

We are educating the next generation of tech entrepreneurs Germany needs for a digital future. We develop a unique ecosystem for startups. You will be part of something great. To make your time at Founders Foundation as interesting and inspiring as possible you will benefit from:

  • A strong network of founders, partners and venture capitalists
  • An abundance of contacts to the international startup scene
  • All sorts of responsibilities, room for creativity and new ideas
  • An awesome team of people who have your personal development at heart
  • Exclusive participation in workshops, events and training programs
  • Further development and discounts on Bertelsmann corporate benefits
  • A modern workplace in Bielefeld’s old town - muesli, fruit, water and coffee included
