Entrepreneur in Residence - Remote DK

Copenhagen, Denmark | Entrepreneurs in Residence | Contract


Company Description


Beam aims to become the world’s most successful logistics company builder. Globally, at over € 8 trillion, the logistics industry is huge. Startups are only beginning to scratch the surface of the transformation made possible by applying software to business problems.

We are backed by BEUMER Group, a € 1 B revenue, German, family-owned logistics company with a global footprint, also with an office in Denmark, and access to an extensive network of industrial customers. We are also confidently relying on our excellent network of startup mentors, venture capitalists, and technical experts. Headquartered in Berlin, we are committed to becoming the strongest – and yet humble, partner for any entrepreneurial who believes she/he can build a next-generation logistics company.

We are looking for entrepreneurs in Copenhagen to validate business opportunities, compete with peers, be held accountable for the timeline, and deliverables. Your goal is to create momentum in your validation and ultimately launch a high potential startup. We expect you to take full advantage of our fast track process, be productive, attract experts, customers, and partners alike. An ideal person for this position is very ambitious and eager to create new and effective solutions for outdated and cumbersome logistics problems.

PS! We are only able to take freelance entrepreneurs in remote residence on board in Denmark. If you need to be employed by Beam, please indicate so in your application.


Job description

  • You work intensively to validate a problem of your choice and then find a possible solution to that problem.
  • You will conduct interviews with industry experts and gain access to experts from the BEUMER Group to gain further insights.
  • You will devote all your time and energy to your validation and receive help from our value- and a mission-aligned team of professionals when it matters most.
  • You will be in direct contact with the Beam team and can be involved in the processes and potential of the BEUMER Group. Even if our paths part again after your validation, you have achieved tangible results and built up an extensive network.
  • You think and act with a long-term perspective: Your ultimate goal is to launch a logistics start-up with Beam. 

What speaks in our favor?

  • We offer you pre-validated logistics problems, not solutions! This means you have the freedom to develop your own business model and business plan. Depending on the scope of the problem, you can take (unfair) advantage of having a direct connection to the BEUMER Group.
  • The BEUMER Group is a more than 85-year-old family business, which we are a part of. As our family-owned company, we are not looking for easy money, but want to help you build something really big over many years.
  • At Beam, you will be advised and coached on business development - and have access to our network of experts.
  • You will receive our extensive support in searching - and finding - suitable co-validators/co-founders. We encourage you to also tap into your own network and propose a potential co-validator with your application.
  • You can work together with like-minded entrepreneurs in an atmosphere that makes you want to succeed.
  • You will receive a monthly remuneration of 18,600 DKK (gross) for the duration of your validation (3-4 months).


  • You have very strong analytical skills and demonstrable curiosity.
  • You have at least 2 years of start-up experience and 5 at least years of professional experience in technology and/or logistics.
  • You have entrepreneurial and/or start-up experience and can back it up with a track record of successful endeavors.
  • You are business fluent in English.
  • You are able to commit to a problem validation full time.

How to apply?

Please apply with your CV and your LinkedIn profile. Please also answer the following questions in the application form: 

  1. Do you have at least two years of start-up experience? Which startup was it, and what were your tasks there? What did you learn from it?
  2. Please explain why launching a software start-up in logistics is the next logical step for you?

We also kindly ask you to let us know your gender, level of English skills, and the highest level of education you've obtained along your journey.
