Venture Leader for an Intersection Ventures Pipeline startup
About the role
This is NOT a normal job opening. Please read the description carefully before applying.
This job post is put together with one key purpose in mind: You're amazing, have an amazing insight and idea and we'll hire you to build the start up with us.
To get there, we will ruthlessly assess your answer to the key question:
> What's the problem and unique industry insight that you have, that you will use with your IV Venture? <
Copy/paste the question into the "About yourself" field on next page, including your answer. We will not get back to you unless you do this.
You will as a step and a bonus have the opportunity to present your problem, insight and solution to the Intersection Ventures team for insightful feedback from seasoned entrepreneurs.
With that, here is the job post:
