MD type to take over Localoids
London, Berlin, Lisbon, Paris, Madrid, Barcelona
<<<< PLEASE ONLY APPLY IF YOU ARE BASED IN EUROPE >>>>
The Low down
I have built the Localoids platform over the past couple of years, to a point where it’s nearly ready to go to market. The customer development, market and competitor analysis, business model and MVP have already been built. It’s a Rails based web application, fully mobile and tablet responsive.
But I’m now taking a different direction. I’m still very passionate about Localoids and very positive on it’s prospects, but I can’t build it now. So I’m looking for a talented MD type with a passion for bringing people of the world together, to take over. It could be on a full or part-time basis. I will retain some equity and sit back on the board.
We are Localoids (www.localoids.com), a community of travellers, locals and recent movers (eg international students and migrants) who connect around interests, while sharing local advice, culture, language, skills and knowledge. We also provide recommendations for travel and local products and services.
Localoids is a former member of the exclusive Traveltech Lab (www.traveltechlab.london), situated in stunning offices on the Thames, overlooking the Mayor’s office and Tower bridge. The incubator is supported by the Mayor’s promotional arm for London, and corporate sponsors. I’m sure we can easily get back in if we wish. And if not, we are still alumni so get access to events and support.
Who I’m looking for
Passion is essential. We’re building a great community with a socially positive impact. Anyone on our team must have a passion for what we are aiming to achieve.
We're looking for a MD type, who can take control of all aspects of building the business, including building a team, taking it to traction, securing funding and growth. Of course, I will assist as a NED.
Also, the business is based in London, so if you are also, that would be an advantage, but it’s not necessary. We are looking to expand into Europe quite soon.
What I’m offering
I am offering a generous equity stake (vested) in exchange for work and/or a capital contribution. This is flexible, as the most important thing is to find the right person.
If you believe you’re the right person, or even know someone who may be, please get in touch with a link to your linkedIn profile and/or your CV.
