The cycle for this program typically runs from Mid-Fall (recruiting begins) through April (program concludes). You will be supported by your coworkers and the Executive Director so while you will lead this work, you will not do it all on your own. Your tasks will include:

      • Use your network and ours to recruit founders to Elevate Equity. This may include attending meetings, speaking engagements, zoom calls, etc.

      • Coordinate the application, interview, and selection process for the founders accepted into the accelerator.

      • Collect data and produce content about your founders. Work with our interns or team members to post on our website, social media, outreach material to funders, and other vehicles for promoting our impact. 

      • Support our grant writing efforts by writing content for grant application questions or filing impact reports related to your program. 

      • Recruit coaches for our accelerators and help coordinate training and engagement activities to enhance their volunteer experience.

      • Provide support as needed to your coworkers for their programs they have in session.

      •  Engage and educate our interns so they have a productive and educational experience

      • Represent Flywheel as a planner or participant in events organized by our partners in the Startup ecosystem.

    What’s in it for you?

    • Flexible work hours with work from home several days a week as events allow.

    • When you come to the office, you will be at Union Hall, the epicenter of the region’s entrepreneurial ecosystem, where you’ll meet founders, funders, and mentors, as well as civic, business and government leaders all supporting entrepreneurs.

    • You get free parking, 24/7 in OTR…your friends will be jealous

    • It’s a jeans and tee shirt kind of place. Just dress appropriately for your audience of the day.

    • And a bonus…expect free coffee, tea, and frequent free happy hours. 

    • Three weeks PTO and 10 holidays in the first year of employment. 

    • Salary range of $48-52,000 commensurate with experience

    • We are looking for a year-round, full-time employee, however other arrangements will be considered for the right candidate.

At Flywheel, we are dedicated to building a diverse, inclusive and authentic workplace, so if you’re excited about this role but your past experience, while similar, doesn’t align perfectly we encourage you to apply anyway. You may still be just the right candidate.

    How to apply?
