Studentjob at a startup – Are you an outgoing networker type – and student? (Copenhagen) – Excelerate – København

My name is Kaspar Hansen, and I am the Founder and CEO of Excelerate.I am looking for multiple students to join Excelerate. If you are attending one of the universities in Copenhagen and are looking for a student job – then this might your thing.But first, let me introduce you to ExcelerateWhat we doWe facilitate thesis collaborations between university students and companies.University students go through a process where they create their thesis topic on the platform. We review it, and based on what they want to write about and their profile, we present them to the companies that we have on the platform, who are looking for exactly that profile.If the company like the topic and profile then they will contact the student through the platform and setup an interview, and if that interview goes well – then the collaboration is set to happen.Oh yeah, and it free for students to join!So what do we sell?We have built a platform where students can list their thesis topic and companies can find the right student group for the perfect thesis collaboration. We charge companies a subscription fee which allows them to contact and offer the students a thesis collaboration.On the supply side we have the students and the two main USPs are; * Students want to finish strong by collaborating with a company. * The pain relief we offer to students is the pill called ‘anti-unemployment’. By using Excelerate as a student you increase the chance that you get a thesis collaboration with a relevant company within your field of interest. Writing your thesis with a company is regarded, together with a study job, as the most significant factor in landing a relevant job after graduation. On the demand side are the companies and the main USPs are; * Talent Lead Generation * All companies are looking for talent. Everybody would like to attract the best and the brightest, but it is time-consuming, and it takes a lot of effort to be top-of-mind and ever-present at the universities. Excelerate is the shortcut to skipping the recruiting competition after they graduate. * De-risking the chance of a bad hire * After the 3-4 month collaboration, the company should have a solid understanding of who to hire and who not to hire. Ultimately we make the hiring manager look good to their managers. By increasing the number of good hires they make. * Innovation * Students bring innovation, new thoughts etc. But what is special about Excelerate is that it is the students who create their thesis topic and not the companies. We are currently focusing on the following areas; Software development, Data Science, Design UI/UX, Marketing, Communication, Law, HR, Accounting and Finance. We expect to have about 1000 students signup on the platform from IT University of Copenhagen (ITU), Copenhagen University (KU) and Copenhagen Business School (CBS) in 2022.And this is where we need youWe would like to enhance and expand our reach towards students to a total of 7 universities on Zealand:ITU (IT University of Copenhagen)KU (University of Copenhagen)CBS (Copenhagen Business School)DTU (Technical University of Denmark)AAU (Aalborg University)SDU (The University of Southern Denmark)RUC (Roskilde University Center)What your role would beWe need you to be our representative in ‘the field’ aka on-site at the university that you attend (or multiple if you can manage it). We need you to be the one that drives students toward our platform – and the longer down our rabbit hole they go, the better commission you will get.A scenario could be that you are attending CBS and you are on the Cand.merc program. You have access to a lot of students who would 1. Benefit greatly from joining Excelerate (remember it is free for students to join). 2. Be of high value to Excelerate (attractive for the companies on our platform) We would then agree that you are now responsible for either your program, or three different CBS programs, or the faculty – or all of CBS? whatever you feel confident managing.You will then earn a commission every time;a) A student, from what you are responsible for, signs up to the platformb) A student, from what you are responsible for, creates a thesis topic and it’s publishedc) A student, from what you are responsible for, is confirmed to collaborate with a companyWe are an early-stage startup – which means, currently, our pockets are very small BUT that is not all bad, as you will be compensated by a higher commission.What we are looking forDanish or International speaking – of course mastering the danish language is helpful, but I do not believe it will be a hindrance for this type of job.You need to be; * A true networker * Type of person who other people just like straight away * Not afraid to ‘take the stage’ * A fountain of positive energy * Highly self-driven – you will spend most of your time on-site at the university. * 100% dedication I HIGHLY believe in personality over experience.The ideal person would probably have some experience in the above-mentioned areas, but if you do not – but believe you are the right person, please don’t hesitate to write – show me why I should choose you over the others.There are two requirements * We work out of the office in Copenhagen, not remote (yes we have remote days where we work from home, but in general we work from the office – when you are not on the road) The teamWe are a small team – currently, 5 people; 3 founders and 2 students (from KU and CBS). Working at a co-working space located in Copenhagen.You will be one of the first to join Excelerate for this type of role, however, if it goes as we hope, the ‘on-site’ student group within Excelerate will most likely be +10 students in 2023 – and it will be tons of fun!You will ofcourse not be on your own doing this. You will be ‘backed’ by our marketing team and a teamleader who will enable you to achieve the mission.The TimelineIn the ideal world, you would be able to join.. now, but in the real world, this stuff takes time.
