As a founder, you need a never-ending supply of energy and optimism. You also need to be able to imagine the future you are building. In my experience, the challenge is to also always stay connected with the reality of everyone else.
Over the past few weeks, we’ve often been asked how Axel Springer Plug and Play (ASPnP) and APX are connected and who does what.
Real talk: no matter how great your idea is or how much funding you have, you can’t do it alone. Period. No startups are a one woman/man show because nobody can scale alone. At APX, we believe that the real value is in the people, the founders, the team. One of the key questions we always ask startups, who want join APX, is: Why you? Are you the team to pull this off?
We are looking for our Venture Developer APX is looking for an experienced Venture Developer who will be in charge of actively supporting and coaching our portfolio startups. The Venture Developer will be their first point of contact for any business-related issue, and sparring partner to challenge their growth strategy, product development, or company funding.
