Co-Founder for a sustainable energy venture

Salary Competitive
Equity To be negotiated
Approximately 40% of the total energy consumption in Denmark is spent on keeping buildings heated and hundreds of thousands of Danish private houses have poor energy efficiency and still using oil burners and natural gas furnaces. The potential market for changing heating installations and improving energy efficiency in private homes – in Denmark alone – is probably much more than 150 bill. DKK – and most importantly – several million tons of CO2 reduction.

The job role

We are looking for a co-founder to join our energy team of 5 people, who has a big interest in climate and energy – and preferably some knowledge of the market for energy and heating installations - and building insulation.

You are hungry and gutsy enough to roll up your sleeves and pursue the massive societal challenges and opportunities facing us.

Our current status

We have partnered with one of the largest Nordic corporates to solve this challenge – a corporate with a huge market reach and a trusted brand. This corporate also provides deep knowledge in parts of the total problem, huge distribution potential and great people to the team. Together we’ve been through market discovery and initial Think Big activities and are now identifying several concept ideas, that we will spend the coming months validating and bringing to market. The target is to launch a new venture around Summertime.


Who we are

We are a venture studio & innovation consultancy. We partner with incredible entrepreneurs & corporates to create solutions that have a positive impact on society and the planet. We have our own investment fund that enables us to execute fast and focused with co-founders and strategic partners. We focus on building ventures within health & well-being or energy in relation to the UN's Sustainable Development Goals agenda.


What we offer

As a Co-Founder, we are on a journey together and we can't wait to put all our knowledge and tools to use in our co-creation process. Below you can see some of the competencies we bring to the table and what you can expect when you join us as a co-founder at KRING:

The practical details

Timeline — There’s no official application deadline or start date, so reach out today.

Location — We are open to building with talent from around the world but founders must be willing to be in Copenhagen for at least a 3 months validation phase.

KRING

We are a venture studio & innovation consultancy. We partner with incredible entrepreneurs & corporates to create solutions that have a positive impact on society and the planet. We have our own investment fund that enables us to execute fast and focused with co-founders and strategic partners.  We focus on building ventures within health & well-being or energy.  Our team is small and experienced! Our network is big and powerful. We are a super ambitious bunch and perhaps some people would consider us crazy. We meditate with brain scanners, we discuss poop test for optimal health and wonder why the human race is destroying the earth and if in the future an AI would put the human race under administration. However, we want to take part in ensuring that humans actually are a force for good, for each other and toward this beautiful planet. We start with ourselves: We have weekly runs, 2 min plank together with partners, Crossfit in the park, sustainable sessions, and of course also the normal casual talks and fun.
