Shape the future of Europe's startups ecosystem

We are looking for a motivated senior or young entrepreneur to join, for a maximum of three months, the Startup Europe team at the European Commission. The objective of this small and agile team is to make web-entrepreneurship more attractive and more successful in Europe. Over the last 16 months, a range of actions have been kick-off which aim to raise awareness, lower barriers and unlock support from the public and private sectors for web entrepreneurs.

Further information about our Startup Europe actions.

Specifically the entrepreneur in-residence is expected to:

  • Provide advice and support on a number of actions we started with help of external contractors, to monitor progress and report on outcomes.
  • Engage new relevant stakeholders, organise meetings, facilitate contacts and stimulate discussions.
  • Prepare briefings on specific technical matters relating to web-entrepreneurship for the Commission services and Vice-president Neelie Kroes.

We offer the entrepreneur in-residence the possibility to learn about Commission activities in the Startups area and also contribute to shape the future of the startups ecosystem in Europe. This is an unpaid position. We are happy to consider flexible working time arrangements in order to consider distance to Brussels and other possible previous commitments of the candidate.

To apply, please send your Europass CV together with your motivation letter explaining why you’d be a great addition to our team to: by 10/10/2013.
