Vacancy Startup Scout


Your purpose is to get the best tech entrepreneurs of the country (and Europe) to YES!Delft. You basically headhunt tech entrepreneurs. You constantly look for new and efficient tactics and strategies to find promising founders, technologies, teams and startups. We expect a data-driven work approach. You explore and test online & offline channels to see which scouting tactics help you achieve your goal. With the campus of the Delft University of Technology nearby, you identify our most important sources of contact and professors within the TU Delft and Dutch field labs, in order to secure a close relationship and collaboration. You inspire tech-minded people to explore the world of entrepreneurship. You keep in close contact with our student board, as students are the next generation of entrepreneurs! You will also be working on screening & selection of the teams for our corporate programs and challenges. Most important: You are the main point of contact for tech startups, you represent YES!Delft and explain our programs, and our purpose to entrepreneurs. The ideal outcome would be thousands of high-quality applications consisting of enthusiastic & committed teams for our incubator and our programs.
