Based in Lisbon, Beta–i is one of the main entrepreneurship and innovation organizations in Europe. We help new and established businesses grow the startup way, having the mission of improving entrepreneurship through 3 main acting principles: create and boost a network of entrepreneurship; accelerate startups with global ambition and facilitate their access to investment; and create space, services and products focused on startups and their methodologies.
Beta-i has been around since 2010, but only recently we have moved into the investment area - we've created a new Investment Department with the ambition to define and implement a strategy that will allow Beta-i to position as a key early stage European player. Beta-i is the main shareholder of LC Ventures, a recently raised pre-seed and seed investment arm, to leverage Beta-i’s investment strategy. Lisbon Challenge accelerator program will now start to invest 10K in the 10 startups accepted into the program (one of your main responsibilities will be to lead this funding process.)
Beta-i’s Investment Department works closely with LC Ventures (our investment vehicle that funds pre-seed startups), our acceleration programs and events (namely, Lisbon Investment Summit). As part of this team you will work both at a strategic level, helping to shape our investment proposition within the accelerators and events, as well as in an operational level with the startups on a day to day basis.
Lisbon is a growing international hub and Beta-i is one of its key players and we believe that we’re living very exciting times and moving to a new phase of the ecosystems where investment is one of the key success factors for new and dynamic entrepreneurs.
We are now a team of 30+ people and we are looking for people who share the same vision as us, that have deep knowledge in startups and that like to work in a fast–paced working environment with an autonomous attitude to get things done.
