CFO Co-founder for eco-friendly startup
Are you passionate about tech and also want to save the planet? Then keep on reading...
We are an early stage startup with a cool idea to revolutionize tech ownership and expand the circular economy. We would discuss the idea fully once we have a few chats.
Full disclosure would require an NDA (though not immediately). This would be a standard template NDA, nothing unusual.
We have run a successful marketing campaign to prove there is a market for our idea.
This business has potentially multiple channels, B2B and B2C and the market for this type of business is just in its infancy, so we see a lot of room to grow. If executed correctly, the business can be a unicorn.
Initial discussions would be about us and you and seeing if we are a good fit.
The process would involve collaboration for 3 - 6 months before we take any decision on equity. This is an equity only position until we are funded.
Our backgrounds are technical and business dev, though our goal here is to work mainly on the business.
Our business model requires a lot of capital to scale, so we are intending to raise multiple rounds in the next coming years. Easily a £100M valuation in 5-7 years.
You are a RELIABLE person.
A natural self-starter and confident with sales/pithing/raising money.
We would like to work with someone who has been through the process of creating and growing an incipient startup (not mandatory).
