Seedstars Country Holding MD

Who we are

Seedstars is a global organization with headquarter in Switzerland and a presence in 60+ emerging markets. We are on a mission to impact people’s lives in emerging markets through technology and entrepreneurship. Our initiatives are focused on connecting stakeholders within these ecosystems, building tech companies from scratch and investing in the top entrepreneurs.


About the Seedstars country holding

The country holding has the objective to develop the entrepreneurial ecosystem and build a diversified portfolio of high growth tech companies solving real "pains" rather than "vitamins". We operate the structure much like a startup itself where the country holding core team is the "founder & entrepreneur". The Seedstars global infrastructure and know-how (network, funding, technology team, etc) is fed down into the country holding to build and invest in tech companies.


About the job

It’s very important to us that the candidates share our conviction of bootstrapping and love of the web/tech world, you should have an intuitive feel for what works and what doesn’t online! Keep it simple and keep it lean is our mission so we are not flexible when it comes to cultural fit.


You will be responsible for your own country holding and expanding our key activities from the space, academy & company building to investing arm in this region.

It means:

  • Setting up all operations
  • Hiring a team
  • Building a space
  • Launching an academy
  • Testing ideas and turning them into successful startups
  • Investing in local startups and managing them
  • Supporting the group activities (incl. organizing events)
  • Helping the Seedstars portfolio companies recruit and hire and keep great employees
  • Developing business activities (generating sales!) and relations with corporates & local investors


We are looking for hands-on entrepreneurs. As entrepreneurs you are fully responsible for your country holding and hold personal stakes in the equity.

You will play a large and direct role in allowing us to realise our mission of connecting the different ecosystems and supporting these entrepreneurs.

On a day-to-day level your responsibilities will run from organising and managing the different activities to business development & sales for each one.

You are in charge of identifying key sectors, markets and opportunities to build new MVPs or scale current portfolio ventures from the other country holdings. You are also making our ventures run smoothly and will be directly hands-on managing max 2-3 ventures.

In addition, your role is to network and represent the company as well as raising money for the ventures and for the country holding itself. 


Your profile

  • Previous relevant experience with the job is a MUST
  • Flexibility & International exposure - This job only makes sense for someone who is passionate about traveling and excited to go somewhere completely new, often on very little notice & with a couch surfer attitude
  • Excellent organisational skills and attention to details (at the question "please describe who you are in a tweet" start your answer with the word "kiskil")
  • Strong belief in getting things done - We are nomads traveling around the world so it is important to have drive, ownership and execution. Working in remote with an international team, you have to be comfortable working alone and capable to prioritize and make things happen


Benefits and perks

  • Exposure to cultures and ecosystems from over 60 countries
  • Build your network in emerging markets of tech entrepreneurs and investors
  • Join a young, passionate, hungry and growing team of entrepreneurs & facilitators
  • Bootstrap salary (open compensation model available based on experience, location, seniority, etc...), equity and bonus based on performance. It's all up to you!
