Volunteer – Accelerator Operations

Location: Vienna | Start: asap, latest August 2020

Female Founders is looking for a volunteer to support our accelerator program Grow F. In order to boost our operations and support our current accelerator team, we’d love to onboard a passionate and ambitious person who shares our mission to create a pan-European ecosystem for female entrepreneurial minds.

What we offer:

  • flexible working hours (home office has always been a thing for us)
  • an experienced, fun and extremely passionate team of business professionals (check out our Insta-stories for a glimpse)
  • a nice office next to the yummiest restaurants (Mochi, we love you!)
  • an international network of experts, investors, and visionary minds
  • regular team events (that are mostly related to food)
  • the chance to shape society and economy with us
  • a steep learning curve and a deep dive into the European startup ecosystem
  • Networking with startups and investors from all over Europe

What you’ll do:

  • support our accelerator team in day to day operations
  • help to execute our startup accelerator program Grow F and leverage our network
  • ensure that our startups and partners have the best experience possible during the program
  • communicate a lot (via mail etc.) with our startup teams, partners & friends. You’ll be the main point of contact for them, so you should enjoy communicating online (creativity, precision & love for detail is key here)
  • manage information and data (if you enjoy working with spreadsheets -> awesome, we can’t wait to meet you)
  • prepare documents and presentations for the team, our startups, speakers, and investors
  • scout and support the best female-led ventures from all over Europe 
  • get creative & businessy and work on new ideas for Grow F 

Who we are looking for

In a dynamic environment like ours, flexibility, fast-thinking, and execution are key. Apart from core skills (you should be used to working with Google Drive, Microsoft Office, Slack, and other common tools), we’re looking for someone who fits the current team: We’re a bunch of creative, motivated and hard-working people that really want to change the game and are therefore willing to go the extra mile. Still, we encourage each other to keep balance and take care of ourselves. And above all: we love to have fun (which you’ll find out rather quickly 😉

Please note that this is currently a volunteering position with the opportunity to become more involved. 

We believe in equal opportunities for everyone and encouraging diversity and inclusion is part of our mission. We want to encourage applicants with diverse backgrounds to apply to join the entrepreneurship world. We process all applications without regard to gender, nationality, race, color, religion, age, disability status, sexual orientation or marital status.
