Our ambition is to be the world's best partner for founders.
Started by Brent Hoberman & Henry Lane Fox, Founders Factory is backed by L'Oral, easyJet, Guardian Media Group, Aviva, Holtzbrinck, CSC, Marks & Spencer in the UK & Standard Bank in South Africa. Our platform enables bespoke support to every startup with specialist services from a full-time operations team & market access, distribution opportunities & insight from our partners. To date we have invested in nearly 90 startups & created a further 30 from scratch, together they have raised 150m in external capital & completed over 150 pilots with our partners.
We run two programmes in each location:
Our studio creates new startups. We validate ideas, build founding teams, find first customers & invest directly in each startup.
Our accelerator invests in existing startups. We invest cash, six months of bespoke support from our team & facilitate commercial opportunities with our investors.
Now launching in Paris, we're here to fuel France's startup boom & will be hiring a specialist operating team of at least 50 to design, build & scale over 140 disruptive tech startups in France over the next five years.
Founders Factory is looking to hire an Investment Lead to support our efforts in sourcing & qualifying early-stage start-ups.
The candidate will need to have a good understanding of technology & business models, preferably have networks & exposure to the world of consumer products. Having a broad network of early stage entrepreneurs (pre-seed to post-seed) will give you a competitive advantage in this role. We are a community of entrepreneurs & we look for candidates that want to be an entrepreneur or have been before.
