This is a unique opportunity to be intimately involved with the evolution of 10 startup companies through the course of the TechStars in Seattle fall accelerator program, as they grow from early stage to venture funding. These are internet/software companies, so some level of interest in this area is preferable.
- Access to an extensive network of mentors from the world of start-ups, venture capital, angel investment, and law. See: http://www.techstars.org/mentors
- Attend weekly events, with experts speaking on various topics. A few of the [tentatively] planned events are here: http://www.techstars.org/schedule/.
- Full involvement in TechStars “social” events with the Founders and the Seattle community
- Events include retreats, TechStars Community Parties, Poker Nights, and more! (law firms love sponsoring cool stuff)
- Access to any meeting you find interesting – a chance to personally experience the advice that mentors give to the companies on a variety of business issues
- Backstage attendance at Investor Day in November (yes, you will work during this event, but you have the best seat in the house!)
This is a chance to develop an amazing network with successful professionals from around the nation while observing, participating, and learning about how startups succeed (or fail). Watch videos from last summer to learn more: http://www.techstars.tv/.
- Basically, we need a “jack of all trades”. You must be able to do anything and everything necessary to ensure smooth daily operations.
- Examples of responsibilities: Identifying needs and preparing for upcoming events (ordering and/or picking up food,beverage); organizing meetings and running logistics for special guest mentor visits; taking meeting notes; setting up office space for events; etc.
- There will be no task too small or too large for you.
- Monster executor
- Organizing guru
- Available days, evenings, or basically whenever needed. The schedule is flexible and not necessarily full-time, but you are expected to be present when needed (i.e., before/during/after events). The old saying, “you get out, what you put in,” applies well to this position.
- Great attitude, desire to learn and meet new people, lots of energy and enthusiasm
- Afraid of no job; willing to take the not-so-glamorous tasks along with the awesome ones
Enlistment Dates: August 16th à November 12th (approximately)
