Our work at Cambridge Enterprise (CE) involves helping academics transfer their knowledge by all kinds of commercial routes, but perhaps the most complex way is through forming a new company. Because so much about this process is fluid and ill-defined, having an experienced mentor to guide the journey can be a real advantage.
While CE has a pool of mentors that we call on with questions, big and small – whether it’s insight into a potential market, or help searching for a start-up CEO – we want to go further and bring more of this valuable expertise in house with the addition of two Entrepreneurs In Residence.
To that end, we’re looking for people with hands-on experience starting early stage technology businesses – developing pitches, raising finance and building teams – who can join us part time to help bring new companies to life.
So if you’ve been there, done that, and now have the time and the interest to support our staff and new entrepreneurs as they develop their business ideas, please take a look at the details of the role to find out more.
Working at the centre of one of the most fertile technology hotspots in the UK, and backed with investment funds to support new businesses, it’s certain to be an interesting role.Tags: entrepreneurs, investment, start-ups, technology
