Would you find your passion in enabling people and companies to achieve their mission and support their customers?

The Resident Growth Manager will be responsible for supporting the growth of mission-driven technology companies within TwinklHive. The individual would help shape and build our residents into scalable, sustainable companies and grow our community of founders, helping to facilitate opportunities for collaboration and peer support.

The role would require managing multiple companies and their journey through the accelerator, from onboarding to exit.

You will provide companies with a strategic sounding board, board representation and assist them with problem-solving. You will be responsible for completing monthly reporting, compliance checks and fundraising support for each company you oversee.

The Resident Growth Manager will also work alongside the Hive team to review applications and build TwinklHive’s visibility externally.

Your day to day will involve:

  • Managing multiple TwinklHive companies

In this role, you will learn:

  • How to assess a startup for potential investment and take successful applicants through the legal process
