Job Description/Requirements

About Purple Elephant Ventures:

Purple Elephant Ventures (PEV) is a Nairobi-based venture studio. We build three or four start-ups from scratch per year, each of which helps to lead Africa’s tourism industry to a greener future. As a venture studio, we are continuously ideating, testing, and building ideas into startups. 

At PEV, we believe that the only way to protect Africa’s biodiversity and natural capital is to make sure local communities and governments have financial incentives to protect it. Tourism is the only industry with the incentive and the financial means to do this. PEV builds innovative and profitable start-ups to achieve this at scale.

 

The Role:

As an Associate Venture Builder, you will be deeply passionate about start-ups and the role that innovation can play in leading Africa’s tourism ecosystem to a greener future. More specifically, you will work with our venture-building team on all aspects of taking an idea and turning it into a business - from ideation to research, to developing the first products, to sales, marketing, and beyond. You will have a diverse set of skills, but with a deep love of start-ups, an inherent appreciation of data, and a growth hacking mentality - you thrive running fast-paced experiments across the entire customer journey.


What we are looking for:

  • We are looking for a young, keen, talented lover of start-ups, travel, and climate action; 

  • An entrepreneurial-minded doer who can help our team achieve results;

  • A hustler who will work day and night and never give up until successful.

  • That rare individual who will learn, grow and evolve into a superstar leader within our organization, 


The position requires:

  • A demonstrated love of start-ups and start-up culture

  • A demonstrated passion for tourism

  • A demonstrated belief in the urgency of climate action

  • A positive attitude and collaborative nature

  • Endless energy and the ability to just get things done

  • The legal ability to work in Kenya

 

Expected Start Date:

ASAP.

 

Job Location: 

Nairobi, Kenya. With some travel expected.

 

Expected Remuneration: 

A salary package as per other Associate Venture Builders at PEV, with a realistic chance at promotion for a job done spectacularly well.
