We would like to introduce ourselves: we are Demium Startups and love entrepreneurship.
What do we do in Demium? So many things and all are different. Our mission is to identify, develop and connect the best talent so they can create successful companies together. We want to change the society boosting entrepreneurship. If you liked that, please keep on reading!
We build innovative and scalable companies from scratch. Through our #AllStartup events, we identify people with different skills and connect them to create a startup “Dream Team”.
Once the incubation program begins, we work closely with our entrepreneurs and provide all necessary resources to succeed. We will help them to validate their business idea, create an MVP, identify the product-market fit, launch a scalable solution and receive their first round of investment.
Demium started in Valencia 5 years ago and since then we have launched in 4 more cities in Spain and, so far, 4 outside of Spain. Now it is the perfect time to keep growing, both nationally and internationally, and start finding new countries to expand into and create amazing projects abroad.
We are looking for a Managing Director who will help us to setup our Istanbul hub and take it to the next level.
What does a Managing Director do?
- You will be someone who entrepreneurs trust, but you have to earn it. They will come to you to ask you questions about business models, metrics, investment and marketing strategies, and you will need to give them the right answers.
- You will be responsible for the Incubator, thinking about the perfect methodology to make the city succeed as fast as possible.
- You will be in a "hunting mode", identifying external projects that have potential to be incubated and make our ecosystem stronger.
- You will be responsible for getting the best investment opportunities and introduce the startups in the incubator to them.
- Thanks to your passion for the Startups, you will make sure that your hub has the best project management and incubation procedures, all with an open-minded attitude and ambition to create solid online companies.
- You will be the "investment & quot guard" of your Startups, creating a solid investors portfolio interested in your projects, allowing your Startups to introduce and pitch to them.
- You will constantly follow up with the Startups that are no longer part of the incubation program and act as their business partner, making sure they are profesionalised and are ready for the investment.
- You will manage a team of Incubation Program Director and a Talent Manager.
This position is made for you if...
- You aren't tired of reading what we would like you to achieve.
- You are a passionate and self-motivated person who would thrive in a collaborative competitive environment.
- You're a fast learner. We are a company of companies and you will enjoy if you're able to get your head right and talk about a handcrafted jewelery e-commerce and a marketplace of second hand bikes, pretty much at the same time.
- If you are solutions oriented and are able to give 100% without anyone chasing you.
- You have entrepreneurial experience, specially in businesses that have generated decent revenue and raised investment.
- If you are humble enough to keep growing and are willing to learn from better entrepreneurs than you.
- You have the courage to support more than 10 projects simultaneously.
- You are comfortable working with people and their emotions. You are stubborn and are able to achieve more by listening and doing, rather than just talking.
- Your management skills are out of this world.
- You speak English and Turkish fluently.
Why would you choose us?
- Because we always hire better people than we are.
- Because this is an opportunity to make a huge impact in the company in just few months.
- Because our company culture is worth it, we are a big family!
- Because you won’t find a better place to be challenged and be part of a fun team at the same time.
- Because we are changing the startup ecosystem and you will be an important part of it.
