Mission studio is a Joint Venture between Nesta and Founders Factory, formed in Autumn 2021 we are aiming to spin out 9 mission aligned ventures by the end of 2024.
We’re halfway through our journey, with 6 ventures already being built, 6 Founders recruited and more team members coming on board.
CTO roles struggle to recruit candidates from diverse backgrounds, we’ve been doing what we can to challenge this trend but our efforts are still falling short.
As a next step, we’re now setting up the Community for Women CTOs!
While this community is open to all, if you’re looking to take on a technical leadership role in a startup and identify as a women, or a woman who is minoritised ethnic, has a disability or from a lower socio-economic background, then we’d particularly love to hear from you.
What do you get?
You might be a Head of Engineering, Head of Product, Senior Software Engineer looking to take the next step into a Founding role. In terms of previous experience, this can range across leading technical teams, launching new products and working in an early stage startup. You might feel a Co/Founder role is of interest in the next 6 - 12 months, if so we’d still love to hear from you.
The main thing we’re looking for is potential and a passion for building impactful, tech-enable ventures.
What’s the latest in Mission Studio?
For the remainder of the studio it’s likely we’ll be hiring into up to 5 CTO/CPTO roles. We also have two ventures in the studio, one of which is already looking for a Co Founder and another will be in the coming months;
