At StepFWD we are on a mission to grow the number of diverse startup teams by teaching them “how to” startup properly, facilitating the connection with experienced mentors, and making them investible. 

For the past 3 years, we’ve worked with 31 startups from 13 industries, comprised of 60 founders (27 being female founders), from 7 countries. We had 60+ mentors volunteering their time to help our entrepreneurs grow and 50+ community partners spread the word about our activities. 

We are looking for a person that has a marketing background, is interested in being part of the startup environment, wants to work in a small team, loves to help others grow, and is willing to get out of their professional comfort zone.
