Programme Manager

We work at the interface between large corporations and startups.  Corporations come to us with both conventional and unconventional business problems that need to be solved, and we find game-changing ways to solve these problems through running paid pilots with startups and innovators.

We are sector agnostic and have worked across Fintech, Retail, Big Data, Adtech, Marketing Tech, Manufacturing and Supply Chain, amongst other.  We work with startups across funding stages - from Seed to Series C.  They view us as inbound business development or revenue opportunities.  In short, think of us as the Skunkworks division of large corporations.


As a Programme Manager, you would get to straddle the tech ecosystem, as well as ghet an intimate understanding about business functions in big corporations.  You would be exposed to all phases of the programme - from scouting and scoping of business problems from corporates, to identifying the right startups to solve these problems, as well as defining the key metrics to measure the success of the paid pilots.

Your key responsibilities:

  • Identify new business opportunities with corporates looking to partner with startups
  • Scope and build the business case that will guide the startup scouting process
  • Manage the day-to-day relationships with our partners and their stakeholders, and support programme development and execution
  • Assist with researching startups or creative solutions to partner briefs, and present the research, use cases and possible solutions to our partners with clarity and authority
  • Manage partner expectations in terms of delivery
  • Write reports and provide updates to continually engage partners on their respective programmes
  • All this will also entail a deep understanding of the private or public sector partner's organisation (operations, business model, stakeholders, etc.) and its objectives


Attributes we require of you:

  • Have presence, communicate with authority, and be a person of authentic confidence
  • Already have a good knowledge of the technology startup ecosystem in Singapore and Southeast Asia, and undertand the roles of its stakeholders
  • Have a solid understanding of how startups operate, and be able to appreciate and evaluate their potential with good judgement, whilst recognising how they fit into the wider ecosystem and identify where they can work with corporations and government

Professional skills and experience:

  • A track record in marketing agencies, programme / project management, report writing and / or strategic planning is highly advantageous
  • Ideally, you would have at least three years of work experience
  • Prior experience working in startups, agencies, or consulting firms is a plus
  • Hopefully, you also come with some experience in building business cases, or designing and running innovation workshops
