Entrepreneur in Residence – East Africa
Factor[e] Venture’s Entrepreneur in Residence (EIR) program seeks to empower East African entrepreneurs through support in the development of investable impact ventures by providing early-stage funding. This program is generously supported by Bohemian Impact Investments, LLC.
We are looking for a hard-working, creative, technically-savvy, passionate, and visionary East African entrepreneur committed to building a venture in partnership with Factor[e]. The EIR program extends over a period of 6 months. During that time, the EIR will be tasked to follow lean startup principles and processes to build a venture that Factor[e] and sector partners can invest in and that will ultimately improve lives across the region. This program is designed as a partnership between Factor[e] and the EIR at the beginning of a long-term journey towards building a highly impactful venture.
Through a thesis-driven investment approach, Factor[e] identifies gaps in the markets we are passionate about and backs ventures that address these gaps. When we can’t find investable ventures that do so, we find world-class entrepreneurs and partner with them to create ventures that seize these opportunities. Last year, we co-founded Odyssey Energy Solutions. This year, we want to do the same with an East African entrepreneur for the East African market.
To apply for this partnership, please read through the Job Description for more details on the minimum application requirements and responsibilities of this EIR position, fill in the EIR application form (you will need to Sign In to your Gmail account to fill in the application form), and upload your resume and cover letter.
Applications will be accepted through Monday, March 26th, 2018.
