Head of Malmö Startups & Women in Entrepreneurship

Malmö Startups’ mission is to help build an inclusive and connected startup community in Malmö in order to give high growth startups a better chance at success.

Malmö Startups is a part of the non-profit organisation, Skåne Startups. Our purpose is to enable startup initiatives in Skåne. Our current initiatives include Malmö Startups, Lund Startups, Helsingborg Startups and the Women in Entrepreneurship community. Women in Entrepreneurship regularly hosts family-sized breakfasts in Malmö, Lund and Helsingborg and larger regional events twice per year.

We also organise Skåne’s largest startup event, Startup Live!, arrange over 200 investor meetings per year - connecting regional startups to venture capital firms from around the world, and arrange 50-60 startup related events annually.

In our next phase, we are looking for someone to take on the role of Head of Malmö Startups & Women in Entrepreneurship. In this role, you will report to the CEO of Skåne Startups and work within a small, energetic team of four people. Each team member has two focus areas, the first is to develop a local community (e.g. Malmö Startups) and the second is a focus on a regional activity (e.g. Women in Entrepreneurship).

You will help Malmö Startups make an even bigger impact. We have a lot planned and need a new team member who is ready and willing to learn, work hard and be a part of our exciting journey & community. We may be a small team, but we aim to make a big impact by working harder and smarter.

As the Head of Malmö Startups & Women in Entrepreneurship, your key activities will be to:

  • Be the face of the Malmö Startups community and the spider in the web in Malmö.

  • Spend your first couple of months meeting and building relationships with high-growth entrepreneurs, key startup employees, investors, support organisations and influencers across the city.

  • Be the lead organiser of Women in Entrepreneurship activities, including our breakfasts and fikas. You will be responsible for setting the theme/content for the events, planning, promotion & execution and working closely with our ambassadors in each city.

  • Be a community builder; arranging startup events in Malmö and building strong relationships across the local startup community and region.

Who we are looking for:

We are looking for someone who is committed to staying in the organisation for a couple of years. You are someone who will bring your own creative flare, vision and energy, and are confident in your abilities. You are a doer who can take your own initiative as well as work within a set team and framework. You take responsibility for shaping your own position and career, and are not afraid to work hard.

What you will receive:

  • A salary :)

  • A chance to hang out with some super smart people throughout the startup community

  • The ability to do what you love while making a long lasting impact on the community

  • Coaching and support from experienced community builders

  • A desk at Djäkne, one of Malmö’s best co-working spaces, and great, free coffee

When and Where:

This is a full-time position with a preferred start around January 2019; we expect you to stay in this role for two years.

The majority of your time will be spent working from our office in Malmö; you will also be required to travel to Copenhagen, Lund and Helsingborg from time to time and may need to travel internationally on occasion.

The Process

Apply online and we will reach out to interesting candidates to arrange a phone interview or meeting at our offices in Malmö.

Your first interviews will be with the CEO of Skåne Startups, followed by one or two members of our Board of Directors.

The final candidate will have the opportunity to talk to our current and former employees to get a better idea of how it is to work with us. Working at Skåne Startups should be a well-informed decision for both parties.
