Introduction:

Come and join an ambitious and creative team reinventing early stage VC in Africa. We’re dedicated to identifying, investing in and accelerating Africa’s hottest tech start-ups, while helping to develop the tech ecosystem and drive innovation across the African continent.

At The Baobab Network, we fund world-class African entrepreneurs building scalable solutions to pressing challenges across a wide range of sectors: from mobility, logistics, financial services and insurance, to healthcare, clean energy, agriculture and education. We invest $25,000 USD into each start-up and provide a unique, tailor-made acceleration platform to help them scale and unlock future funding.

What you’ll do:

– Build a strong network of start-ups, investors and partners across the tech ecosystem; represent Baobab at conferences and events; drive quality start-up applications into our pipeline.

– Research, identify and develop investment opportunities and theses; analyse and evaluate start-up founders and their businesses; create and pitch investment proposals to our investment committee.

– Play an active role managing and supporting start-ups within our portfolio, blending project management, strategy consulting and growth hacking principles; work alongside founders remotely and in-market to help them grow.

– Iterate Baobab’s unique approach to acceleration, constantly improving our processes and outcomes for start-ups; help establish Baobab as the leading early stage investor in Africa and across emerging markets.

What we’re looking for:

– You’ve worked in a start-up or, even better, have started your own business.

– You have demonstrable passion for Africa, technology and entrepreneurship.

– You’re a people person, capable of identifying, nurturing and amplifying the potential in others.

– You’re an excellent communicator and are fluent in English, with bonus points if you also speak French or Portuguese.

– You are always learning and constantly challenging yourself and others around you to be better.

To apply:

For the right candidate, we offer a competitive salary; an opportunity to work with inspirational start-up founders on a day-to-day basis; and genuine responsibility and ownership to shape the strategy and direction of our business and your own personal and professional development.
