FinLeap is a fintech company builder based in Berlin with the mission to reshape the financial services industry by empowering entrepreneurs to build impactful, technology-enabled and customer-centric companies. FinLeap provides entrepreneurs with 0.5 - 5 million euro in seed funding and further contacts to a strong network of investors. As an industry-specific startup factory with a team of experienced fintech experts, FinLeap enables founders to focus on executing business ideas by also giving them access to top talent, integrated services, best-practice processes and financial industry expertise. If you have founded before, or have years of relevant industry experience, you might be fit for co-founding a FinLeap company!
What our Co-Founders do:
As a Co-Founder, you are an inspirational leader and take full ownership for your own venture.
Typically, a venture is led by two to three co-founders with complementing profiles: one with extensive knowledge of the financial sector and the other with an entrepreneurial background or tech expertise. All work closely together on business development and organizational topics, e.g. contributing to the business plan, relationship management, leading the company strategically and operationally and validating the product.
As a Co-Founder, you are in the driver’s seat: you focus on developing and furthering the vision of the venture and are committed to making it successful. You are responsible for building up partnerships and closing strategic deals and are the contact person for FinLeap managing directors as well as internal and external stakeholders. As an entrepreneur, you independently navigate and manage your own projects and thrive in fast-paced working environments. Together with FinLeap, you develop a sustainable company culture by hiring and leading a great team.
The person we are looking for:
You have either gained knowledge while working in the finance industry and/or you have an entrepreneurial background in building companies from scratch - gladly both! As an ideal co-founder, you have earned a degree from a top university or business/tech school, and, whether at university or on the job, you are always among the top performers of your peer group. Beyond your experience in managing teams and projects, you are flexible, unintimidated by deadlines and you perform well under pressure. You have a result-oriented working style and strong analytical and conceptual skills. Great social skills and proficiency in dealing with customers and external stakeholders (both English and German) distinguish you as a leader. Your passion for fintech and inner drive to succeed round off your profile.
With us as a strong partner by your side:
We support entrepreneurs who are building scalable businesses and solving real problems in the financial industry. Our co-founders take full ownership of their ventures and are responsible for driving them towards success while benefiting from our support along the way. We empower our co-founders with venture capital, talent and networks, as well as top-notch finance industry expertise and hands-on support in engineering, marketing and assembling the right team. You profit from working with serial entrepreneurs who have co-founded over 15 successful companies and you work with a highly motivated and skilled team of top performers. As a part of the fastest growing company builder in the fintech sector, you enjoy a very attractive equity package and a competitive salary.
