About Beta-i

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.

We are looking for a Program Assistant to help run our corporate accelerators.

Hand in hand with the Program Managers and Directors, the Program Assistant is responsible for helping to carry out tasks that are important for the success of the corporate acceleration programs.

Who are you?

Familiarity with startups is preferred and a willingness to learn and tackle new problems is a must. We expect you to show empathy for the entrepreneurs and the challenges involved with building a startup. They are the ones doing the hard work, taking the risk and we always have to keep that top of mind.
