Title: International Scout: Nordics
Date Posted: 2017-08-26
Location: United Kingdom
Founders Factory was started in 2015 to do three things: transform how corporate innovation really works; find a new way to create start-ups from scratch; and to help existing start-ups scale.

Today we have raised capital for six different verticals, each lead by an industry-leading corporate: Holtzbrinck (EdTech), Guardian Media Group (Media), L'Oreal (Beauty), Aviva (FinTech), CSC (AI) and easyJet (Travel). With that investment we build 12 new companies each year in an incubator model, sourcing ideas from our team and partners then rapidly building tech products that those partners can help us bring to market. Additionally we select 30 companies a year for a new type of accelerator program that combines an operating team of 60 individuals (across growth, marketing, partnerships, product, tech and fundraising), access to our investors for partnerships as well as the broader FF network.

We are looking for remote, part-time scouts that can help us to source high quality start-ups from the Nordic technology ecosystem. Each year we review over 1,000 startups for our accelerator investments and rely on local partners to help us identify the best entrepreneurs and new technologies from across Europe.

The role will require you to recommend 3-5 high quality start-ups each month which have relevance to our strategic sectors; this is the rough equivalent of 1 day a week of work.


- Strong interest and knowledge of startups, technology and entrepreneurship
- Strong personal network with access to your local startup ecosystem (events, news, universities, founders, investors, corporates)
- Powerful network in Oslo, Stockholm, Copenhagen, Helsinki and other key Nordic innovation hubs
- Ability to qualify entrepreneurs, new technology and digital products
- Ability to work effectively despite being remote
- 3-5 high quality referrals each month


- Further bounty available for successful referrals
- Relationships with the Founders Factory operating team and senior leadership
- Relationships with our corporate investors
- Opportunity to play a major role in 30 startup investments each year
