We are looking for you! Startup Accelerator Manager (f/m/d)

We are >SMART> GREEN, a Germany-wide Green Tech Accelerator based in Freiburg. We push impact startups in the fields of energy, mobility, industry and building. Our formats focus on financing, strategic consulting and targeted startup/SME cooperations.

In a very dynamic and implementation-oriented team, we aim to become the most sought-after contact point for green tech startups in Germany and beyond.



We distribute our tasks agilely according to priorities, time resources and personal preferences. We do not have rigid structures and hierarchies. Our core tasks/formats include:

  • SEED: Business model and financing consulting for the early phase.
  • PRE-SEED financing: advice on financing strategy and implementation of “Start-up BW Pre-Seed”
  • GROW: Start-up/KMU matching and cooperation rerouting
  • Acquisition of start-ups and partners for our formats
  • Design of new innovative funding formats
  • Expansion of our startup ecosystem
  • Strategic development of the Accelerator
  • Marketing on our channels



What are we specifically looking for?

  • Entrepreneur:in in your own startup: You have gone through several phases with your startup and, for example, brought a product to market maturity and raised financing (no funding).
  • Startup consulting: You have officially supported and accompanied founders, e.g. from a university or research institute, with relevant questions.
  • Techie and innovation enthusiast: You know the German start-up scene (really!).
  • Pronounced entrepreneurial thinking. You quickly recognise where a startup stands
  • Deep understanding of business contexts
  • Open, honest, winning communication

For the position as Startup Accelerator Manager (f/m/d) it is also super important to us that you fit into our team. We are humorous, open and direct. We think entrepreneurially, work agilely and continuously prioritise our tasks. We are united by our desire for new things: trends, people, tools, methods, etc.
