Welcome to Polymath Ventures! The Venture Studio for Latin America. 

We are a group of entrepreneurs building digital companies to empower the middle-class of Latin America. We do so through intentionally designed solutions built from scratch that give fair access to quality services and better income-generating opportunities. We believe that this is the best way for sustainable economic development — and the most meaningful way to invest in our talent and energy.

Arana is our most recent co-build and our next bet to become a high-growth digital startup. Arana is the first digital healthcare marketplace in LATAM that makes finding medical procedures easy, quick, safe and at a fair price, solving the needs of patients, doctors, and clinics.

Are you passionate about leading a venture that solves a complex challenge in the healthcare industry in Latin America? 

We are looking for an Entrepreneur in Residence to be a potential Founder & CEO of Arana. We are looking for an ambitious leader excited to transform the traditional healthcare industry in LATAM and provide innovative and fair solutions for the middle-class

As an Entrepreneur in Residence, you will have the opportunity to become a founder & CEO of Arana in the next 6-12 months. How? You will go through an entrepreneurial journey alongside our building experts and current founders to evolve your capabilities and increase your chances of becoming a successful entrepreneur.  . 

In this role you will lead a talented team behind a venture that is projected to become a high-growth and impact startup in LATAM, setting the proper strategic direction as well as creating a vision for success.

As a potential CEO and founder you will have to: 

  • Lead the team towards reaching product-market fit
  • Set the vision for the company and define the overall strategy from launch to scale
  • Lead major venture decisions by managing the overall operation 
  • Steer the direction of the business towards scalability, profitability and growth 
  • Cultivate and develop a high-performing and agile team


What are we looking for?

  • Passion for healthcare
  • Senior leadership experience in core functional roles in high-growth startup environments: CEO / Growth / Product
  • Great leadership skills and social influence
  • Stellar communication and stakeholder management in English and Spanish
  • Entrepreneurial instincts: risk-taker, proactive and hands-on
  • Experience building and leading teams from scratch
  • Openness and reflectiveness to learn and change perspective when needed
  • Long-term commitment to build and scale a startup in LATAM


A plus if you have: 

  • Work experience in the healthcare industry as CEO 
  • Real experience as founder/co-founder of your own digital company
  • Structured thinking process to solve big challenges 
  • Creative mindset over complex problems

Location: México, Perú or Colombia.


Why join us?

  • Be a CEO / Founder. You will have the opportunity to become a founder & CEO, in the next 6 to 9 months, of a new venture that has been built for the middle-class in Latin America. Together we will de-risk the company, aiming for big success.
  • Leverage strategic functions. You will lead a fully funded venture (first 18 months) alongside a multidisciplinary team of experts in Fundraising, Talent, Finance, Marketing, and Legal.
  • Build with one of the most talented teams in Latin America. You will work alongside top and motivated talent from diverse fields and exceptional mentors - our CEO Wenyi Cai and Polymath Ventures founders - that will support and challenge you to get to the next level.
  • Be part of our network of founders, investors, advisors, and an extensive community of allies.
  • Access to unique methodologies to build new ventures. You will gain exceptional experience designing and building great companies, through our methodologies, resources and connections to increase your success.
  • Receive compensation from Day 1. You will have financial compensation and equity in the group from the 1st day. We believe EIRs are essential to the evolution of our ventures, so we invest in you from the get-go.

Important notes on Compensation:
