Co-Founder in (Remote) Residence

Copenhagen, Denmark | Entrepreneurs in Residence | Contract | COVID-19 remote


Company Description

Headquartered in Berlin, we are committed to becoming the most indispensable – and yet humble – partner for any entrepreneur who believes s/he can build a next-generation logistics unicorn. We have the backing of the BEUMER Group on our side! The BEUMER Group is a €1bn revenue, German, family-owned logistics company with a global footprint in intralogistics. We support great entrepreneurs to become successful and want to launch three startups per year. To become a co-founder of a startup at Beam, we invite you to join us as an entrepreneur in (remote) residence (EiR). The startup will be launched in Berlin, requiring relocation from you, when successful!

We would love to have you on board if:

  • You are entrepreneurial and can back it up with a track record of successful endeavours.

  • You’ve been an active part of a startup ecosystem in the past and have a valuable network in the European technology and/or logistics sectors.

  • You have 6 years of professional experience in technology and/or logistics, of which at least 2 years were in a startup.

As an EiR at Beam, you will tackle a pre-validated business opportunity (or bring your own), create momentum in validating a solution vision, and ultimately pitch your solution to get pre-seed funding and your startup off the ground. 

How will we work together?

  • Conscientiously: You will select a problem to work on from our hand-picked selection of pre-validated industry problems – or bring your own problem to the table.

  • Autonomously: We will put you in the driver’s seat of a validation journey to demonstrate the specifics of the problem you chose to work on – and what a software solution for that specific problem could look like.

  • Honestly: We will be your concierge and your devil’s advocate during a bumpy ride that will stress-test your entrepreneurial mindset as you make your way from market research to pitch deck.

  • Supportively: You will have our support along the way, facilitating access to industry stakeholders and experts, and offering you the freedom you need to develop your business model and business plan.

  • Steadily: We are not looking for easy money or smokescreen exit attempts. We want to help you build something huge over the course of many years.

  • Remotely if needed, but ideally you will be able to take advantage of round-the-clock access to our awesome office in the heart of Berlin, equipped with meeting rooms and the technical equipment that suits you best.

During your validation, you will receive a monthly stipend of €2,500 (gross). If your startup idea gets pitched and funded, that number will be adjusted. Upwards.
