How you will help shape your own career with us!

While traditionally every job has a clear job scope, we believe a little otherwise. At ACE, we believe in individual and team contributions. We do whatever it takes to build a future together and a brand that we will all be proud of.

We will help you shape your career and co-create a career path that is most suited to your interest, skill set and talent. You will be exposed to different areas of work and together we will identify what’s best for you.

What we will need from you is RIGHT ATTITUDE and COMMITMENT. The rest will be easy.

Responsibilities

Corporate Engagement and Innovation

We love enterprises, isn’t that what all startups eventually aspire to be? On the other hand, enterprises are beginning to fall in love with the agile, innovative and efficient startup culture. At ACE we marry them both and facilitate their collaborative engagement and innovation.

To play this role well, you will proactively and creatively pursue the enterprises to help them take part in the startup ecosystem. Through your business development and account management skills, you will have the chance to build deep relationships with the enterprises, have them join our corporate members programme and show them how they can benefit from this.

You too would like to find out how you can add value to the corporates by playing a role in driving the co-innovation challenge and programmes. This will involve working with their innovation team to design, launch and manage innovation programmes. You will reach out to the startups across the region to share with them the interesting opportunities. Through this, you will get to develop deep knowledge of the regional startups profile and maintain a knowledge base about them.

 

Startups Engagement

Now this is our core and you would not be reading this if you have no interest about startups. We assist startups across all stages of development. You will get to meet the aspired, the accelerated and the established. You will be part of the team to help the newer ones get started by learning about the various grant schemes and take part in our existing BACECAMP! You will develop a reputation for yourself for being the “must-go-to” person for the early stage startups! Imagine this, wouldn’t you be touched by constantly receiving “thank you” messages from the startups? Of course, there will always be one or two “taking things for granted guys” to handle, but those are not very often. With your flare and people skills, you should be able to handle easily.

Project Management

Life is a series of little projects. It is the same for work. To make our Vision a reality, we will have to progressively deliver a series of successful projects and meet our targets and outcomes. So, project management skills are really important in all roles here at ACE. Plan, Do, Check, Act, Close! Stakeholders management. The project management skillset will really help you to excel in your work.

Requirements

We would like to meet you if you are:

·       Open minded, excited about new ideas and executing new ideas

·       Interested and would like to drive innovation projects

·       Self-starter, fast-learner and willing to learn

·       Highly positive, motivated and full of energy

·       Team player, fun-loving, out-going with good people skills

·       Pride yourself to be strong in project management, business development, and believe in delivering quality work
