W Entrepreneur in Residence

Polymath
Bogota, CO

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.

Building disruptive solutions for the emerging middle-class in Latin America requires diversity of people, thought, and experiences converging towards one purpose. We believe in the influence and value of the female perspective in the entrepreneurial ecosystem. This is why we are looking for women leaders to join our growing community of Entrepreneurs in Residence to work alongside our team of builders in the design, validation, and scaling of new ventures.

As a Female Entrepreneur in Residence, you will have the opportunity to become a founder & c-level of a new venture in the next 6 to 12 months through an exciting entrepreneurial journey working shoulder to shoulder with our building experts to evolve your capabilities to the next level and become a reference in the entrepreneurial world.

 

As a Female EIR you will have to: 

  • Lead one key area of the new company: product / ops / growth 
  • Lead a high potential team towards reaching product-market fit through the process of experimentation and learning
  • Steer the direction of the business towards scalability and healthy growth
  • Leverage your business and entrepreneur experience to transform a concept into a viable business model

 

What are we looking for?

  • Female entrepreneurs with more than 7 years of work experience and senior leadership experience in core functional roles in high-growth startup environments: C-level or Operations / Growth / Product / Data /Tech Experience
  • Experience building and leading teams 
  • Hunger to build a tech company from scratch and scale it to impact Latam middle-class
  • Entrepreneurial instincts: risk-taker, proactive and hands-on
  • Openness and reflectiveness to learn and change perspective when needed
  • Stellar communication in English and Spanish

A plus if you have: 

  • Real experience as founder/co-founder of your own digital company
  • Great leadership skills and social influence
  • Structured thinking process to solve big challenges 
  • Creative mindset 

Location: Colombia, Peru, or Mexico.

 

Why join us?

  • Be a Founder in a female inclusive environment. You will have the opportunity to become a founder & c-level, in the next 6 to 9 months, of a new venture that has been built for a 46% female composed team. Together we will de-risk the company, aiming for big success.
  • Join a diverse team of female leaders. Gender equality is at the core of our purpose and operation. We aim to build a healthy ecosystem powered by diversity and inclusion and we expect you to be an active member of our effort. 
  • 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 senior team 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 committed to the development of women in the entrepreneurial ecosystem.
  • 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.
