👋 Hey, We're Founders Factory
Founders Factory is improving the odds of startup success, empowering anyone to impact the world through entrepreneurship.
We’re changing the venture model, trusting our ability to make a real difference to the companies we invest in. Our platform gives entrepreneurs market access to multi-national corporates, and bespoke operational support from a big and brilliant team. This allows us to do things that don’t scale, tailoring a program to every startup that joins. Letting our startups tap into skills they need but can’t yet access.
All of this is funded by our corporate partners, but their role is not simply cash. They bring the best bits of their businesses to our startups - validation, distribution, insight and capital. These are ingredients that startups others don’t have, which is why you see startups here that can not exist anywhere else.
We’re here so founders who see the future differently get the skills they need to make it a reality. We’re proud to back founders others wouldn’t and we back ourselves to make them successful. We know the biggest impact comes from those that don’t fit the mould so we’ve made Founders Factory their home.
👟 Our Culture
Working with us is very different than other companies. It's not just a job – instead, a pursuit that we live and breathe every single day. We are resilient business builders, incredibly passionate and thrive in uncertainty. We want to obtain a deeper understanding of the conditions that lead to successful innovation. We hope to show there is a better way to build tech startups and take on the issues of why most startups fail. We are creating something meaningful and get paid to learn at an incredible pace.
👤 The Role
Founders Factory are hiring for a Venture Analyst to join our team. Your focus will be on sourcing and researching startups to apply to our industry-leading accelerator. As well as analysing online databases, blogs, news articles or other proprietary avenues to find the most interesting founders or startups, you'll also develop a high-level thematic approach identifying verticals of opportunity on which we can work with our corporate partners. You'll help implement this framework in sourcing and evaluating companies in collaboration with the rest of our Venture team to drive best practice across systematic research and ultimately increasing the quality of companies joining our accelerator programme.
