We're building the most powerful growth engine for African startups & their founders.
Founders Factory Africa (FFA) is unlike any place else you've ever worked. We are venture builders dedicated to solving some of Africa's biggest challenges & capitalizing on it's incredible potential by leveraging market & tech opportunities. Over the next five years, we'll build 40 businesses from scratch & scale 100 existing growth-stage ventures through our venture development programs. Backed by leading corporates, such as Standard Bank - the continent's largest bank - we have access to their vast resources, infrastructure, & expertise & will bring those to bear for all our ventures & entrepreneurs. Starting with FinTech & HealthTech, FFA will expand our focus as we grow, adding other sectors that include retail, transportation, energy, & education.
Our goals are audacious, & we want to work with people who share our passion for pursuing transformation at scale. We believe that good ideas can come from anywhere - not just the top - & we love to build our way out of uncertainty. At FFA, you will work with & meet outstanding & diverse talent from across the continent & help us build a collaborative, inclusive, & supportive network. You will work faster (and learn faster) than you ever have before.
With offices in Johannesburg & London, we are building an ambitious, talented, & passionate team, ensuring that Founders Factory Africa is the continent's best partner for founders.
We're looking for an enthusiastic intern to join our high-growth, venture development company. You'll have a passion for making a difference within the African start-up ecosystem. You will ideally have prior exposure to building & delivering digital content & be interested in learning more about this space. This is a 3-month role during which you will be working with the FFA partnerships team & interacting with all other team members on a regular basis. This is also an opportunity to get direct exposure to a venture development company building & scaling over 100 startups across the continent. This means direct interaction with teams across the continent, cross-functional exposure (e.g. technology, product, marketing, investment etc) & a focus on what's new within the world of tech startups in Africa.
Corporate | Startup collaboration is widely recognised as offering great opportunities for corporates & startups involved. Across Africa however, there is little local content & few locally focused conversations on the topic. We are looking for a rock star content manager to create a buzz across corporates on the continent to showcase the value & bring out the best practice to drive greater corporate | startup collaboration & generate opportunities for Founders Factory Africa & our portfolio businesses.
