Company description

THINK is Sweden’s first lean startup incubator now implementing an accelerator model. It is home to great startups, such as Bilprospekt, Fieldly, digitalpost.io and Swiftcourt. THINK is financed by Helsingborgs Stad and Familjen Helsingborg. We aim at developing scalable startups as efficient and quickly as possible. THINK is located at Mindpark, one of the hottest coworking spaces in the world according to IT-world.com, and we are accepting startups from all over Sweden. From 2015 the accelerator has been pointed out as one of Helsingborg Stad’s important strategic initiatives.

Business Developer

Sweden’s first lean startup incubator is on a mission to redefine what a public financed incubator can be. We want to move quicker, be more efficient as a business development partner and create great value for digital startups in the Øresund region. We will now make a move to create the greatest startup accelerator in Southern Sweden.

Helsingborg is a vibrant city in the south of Sweden and greater Copenhagen. The business climate is the best you can find for cities over 100 000 citizens. Helsingborg provides platforms for growth, especially THINK, Sweden’s first lean startup incubator.

On our mission we are looking for a highly talented and motivated business developer. The business developer will work close to the accelerator manager with everything from developing a long term strategy for the accelerator, communications and marketing and of course the most important part, be a resource for the startups in the accelerator. Challenges that they face are of all kinds and sorts, staffing, financing, marketing, legal, ideation, and team building to name a few. Challenges that you are supposed to coach and guide them through. 

You have previous experience from running your own, or working in a startup. You know a lot about the methodology around lean startup, you are diligent, analytic, and highly motivated. But most of all, you are a creative, yet humble, doer that keeps on moving, challenging yourself and developing your skills.
