VC4A is a leading platform connecting entrepreneurs across Africa and Latin America with investors, mentors, and startup support programs. We strengthen startup communities by creating innovative and scalable businesses with the knowledge, network and funding they need to succeed.
Our international team is building a world-class service for world-class entrepreneurs and their startups – connecting capital and resources to new innovations, products, and services. Our data shows that the more opportunities we connect through VC4A the faster these companies can grow and scale their operations. New jobs and new opportunities in the world’s fastest-growing markets have an immediate and positive impact on people’s lives.
As a Community Platform & Acceleration Associate, you are directly working with the VC4A.com community of entrepreneurs, program organizers, mentors, investors, and anyone who is bringing value to the ecosystem. No day will be the same, and believing in flat hierarchies within our team, you are welcome to contribute your own ideas and get actively involved in shaping this beautiful project!
We work in remote teams in similar time zones and actively communicate via Slack. We have weekly team meetings to sync with one another about what has happened in the prior week and plan the coming one. We keep each other updated, provide feedback, and support one another at any time.
In the role of the Community Platform Associate, you are responsible for successfully setting up and executing digital campaigns to recruit startups via the VC4A.com platform. During and beyond these campaigns, the Associate will proactively support both sides, the program organizers – from start to finish of their program’s application and selection processes – as well as the entrepreneurs we aim to connect with these opportunities via the platform. You will work hand-in-hand with the marketing team and the rest of the platform team.
We are looking for someone who knows what is needed to manage and maintain an online community and who has experience working with the WordPress CMS system and can edit text and images to ensure the quality of content on the platform. This is in addition to supporting strategic partners and programs with their outreach efforts using tools like MailChimp newsletters and main social media tools.
You should be highly organized, have an ability to prioritize time-sensitive assignments, manage deadlines and work independently. The ideal candidate has excellent communication skills in English (and ideally also Spanish).
At the core, we seek a driven individual to lead the implementation of digital campaigns on behalf of our partners, attract startup entrepreneurs to programs, and maintain sub-community environments of VC4A partners.
Key requirements & skills:
Joining a motivated team of professionals in the center of Amsterdam or remotely, dedicated to supporting innovative high-growth entrepreneurs in Africa and Latin America.
