Next Gen Summit is looking for a motivated, self-starting individual to join the team in a part-time role beginning this September. This person will work directly with the Founders, and will gain experience across all divisions with a primary focus on curating, growing, and nurturing the Next Gen Summit Community.
At NGS, we aim to provide the resources young founders need to succeed - both personally and professionally - and the Community Manager will be at the forefront of this mission. You will have the opportunity to network and engage with thousands of the most talented entrepreneurs, investors, and mentors on a daily basis, while being part of a young, vibrant, and growing team.
The Community Manager ripe for success will embody (most, if not all of) the below qualities and skills:
- Strong communicator
- Highly personable
- Strong ability to multitask
What we don’t necessarily care as much about:
- # of degrees
- ’Resume-filling’ work experience
What exactly will our Community Manager do?
This person will curate our community (duh!) on a daily basis, connecting with members to provide the resources necessary for success. They will help plan community events across the nation, and even a few around the world. Each day will bring new experiences and opportunities to interact with uniquely talented individuals. They’ll be responsible for connecting the founders we work with to the resources we provide, including a growing network of corporate partners, incubators, accelerators, investors, and more. Our Community Manager will play a major role in continuing the growth of our community as we expand and advance over the next few months.
So, what’s in it for you?
In short, you will have an unmatched opportunity to work directly with the Founders, providing you exposure to a world-class network of entrepreneurs, thinkers, and leaders. You will gain access and connection to investors, corporate partners, and executives.
