THE PULSE OF INNOVATION & ENTREPRENEURSHIP IN THE NORDICS!
Since 2013, TechBBQ has worked to support and strengthen the Nordic ecosystem for
entrepreneurship and innovation, based on the distinctive Nordic values of openness,
inclusion, trust and meeting each other at eye level. TechBBQ is Scandinavia's largest
startup and innovation summit. For more information check out techbbq.dk.
TechBBQ is looking for a Global Partnership Manager to join our Partnerships team. The Partnerships team is a small, dedicated team that works closely with the entire Nordic startup ecosystem to build strong partnerships and create activities for our ecosystem. The Global Partnership Manager will be responsible for creating and nurturing international partnerships, such as delegations, international corporations and community players.
Who are you?
No fancy education is required, but high levels of empathy is a must!
You love entrepreneurship, ecosystem building, and innovation. You probably read about it on the weekends, and watched WeCrashed and Start-up with excitement!
You love a challenge and you thrive in a collaborative work environment that gives individuals high levels of autonomy
You might have previous working experience with inbound & outbound account/partnership management, preferably international stakeholders
You are, besides all of the above, very result driven and want to create a very successful career for yourself, while doing good for both society and the world we live in.
You will feel successful if you:
Identify and establish commercial partnerships with tech giants, community and government organizations across the Nordics
Lead or take part in independent projects that make a difference for the Nordic Startup ecosystem
Engage regularly with the Nordic Startup ecosystem and beyond, to break down challenges and propose solutions
Are a team player who has a "greater good" perspective, rather than an individualistic perspective. It's more important to have your colleagues when they go through tough times than to land a sale.
P.s. don't get us wrong, we love entrepreneurship, ecosystems, and technology, but this is a very commercial role and you gotta love sales, business development, and partnerships to thrive in it.
