The MEST Incubator is looking for:
- An Incubator Fellow for a 1-year assignment in Ghana, starting in January 2018
- An Incubator SALES Fellow for a 3 months assignment in Ghana, starting in January 2018
- An Incubator TECH Fellow for a 1-year assignment in Ghana, starting in January 2018 AND in Nigeria, starting in April 2018
to support software startups in Accra or Lagos. Our Incubator is home to over fifteen (and growing!) funded early-stage technology startups, comprised of graduates from our awardwinning training program that recruits exceptional talent from Ghana, Nigeria, Kenya, and South Africa (meltwater.org/incubator).
The African technology ecosystem is evolving at a blistering pace, and we’re looking for someone who is excited to dive into uncharted waters and help our teams write the playbook on how to build and scale worldclass technology companies from Africa.
You’ll be supported by the team in Ghana and San Francisco and report directly to the General Manager of the MEST Incubator.
There are no easy answers to the challenges our founders face, and in many cases, we’ll be looking to you to help our teams define success and work towards that outcome. Are you up for the challenge? Come join us.
