This role is a hybrid between a Growth Lead position and an Entrepreneur-in-Residence position. Your job would be to support the growth of the different business units in Asia with their Growth objectives by implementing and following the growth and experimentation methodology, while simultaneously supporting the startups in the Investment Readiness Program (virtually and in-person) through their challenges and helping them reach a stage of Investment Readiness.
This is an exciting opportunity for anyone who has prior startup experience and wants to leverage their knowledge to support the growth of multiple startups across Asia.

Your key responsibilities:

• Screening applicants, investment analysis, due diligence, data room
• Term sheet and deal documentation management
• Execution of the outlined design and curriculum of the program
• Mentoring multiple startups simultaneously (virtually and onsite)

• Optimizing the AARRR Funnel

• Deeply data-driven and analytical
• Teaching and training experience are a plus
• Passion for startups and technology, particularly in emerging markets
• Flexibility & International exposure – This job only makes sense for someone who is passionate about traveling and excited to go somewhere completely new, often on very little notice
• Strong belief in getting things done – We are nomads traveling around the world so it is important to have drive, ownership and execution. Working in remote with an international team, you have to be comfortable working alone and capable to prioritize and make things happen

• We are on a mission to impact people’s lives in emerging markets
• You get many growth opportunities and responsibilities early on. It’s one of the perks of a fast-growing international company.
