Wefunder's Story 💡 communityround.com/case-studies/wefunder
Our Public Benefit Corp Mission 🎙 https://wefunder.com/charter
Wefunder is launching in the European Union. We launched in the US in 2012. Four years later the laws rolled out allowing us to operate, but it took until 2021 for them to be workable. Luckily, the EU just rolled out new laws that are as good as the current US laws, so there’s a lot of potential to scale quickly.
We want to bring on a Head of Partnerships to join our small launch team. In this role, you will build strategic relationships with local angel investors, startup accelerators, and VCs. Our goal is to partner with them on inspiring 20,000 more founders to get started. We want to encourage founders to think bigger, hone their pitch, and give them the funding they need to prove to the "normals" in the world that they are not crazy (or, at least, crazy in a lucrative way).
Our Dream Candidate
We’re a team of founder types, and pride ourselves on the lack of red tape at Wefunder. Your potential matters more than your background or experience; we’re the company where you can take your shot. Everyone is here to learn and grow, to work on a meaningful product, and to fix capitalism. We’ve spent years lobbying congress to fix the law, and in turn, created this industry.
Apply below or email Katie Powers at kapow[at]wefunder.com with your LinkedIn / CV and why you'd like to work with us. Brownie points: Include a survival skill you'd offer the team in a post-apocalyptic world.
If you feel like you don't meet all of the requirements for this role, we encourage you to apply anyways. We don't want a confidence gap and imposter syndrome to get in the way of meeting incredible candidates. Pursuant to the San Francisco Fair Chance Ordinance, we will also consider for employment qualified applicants with arrest and conviction records.
