  • Source and screen projects within this scope: develop a strategic overview of the sector and a deal-flow of “investable” projects; manage due diligence through interviews with management and specialists in the field, background checks, research on the “market”, …
  • Closely follow-up with the supported non-profits to ensure the impact delivery: establish partnership agreements with clear impact targets; accompany the beneficiary in its impact delivery; monitor the progress and report back to the client, …

 

You will develop an expertise in your impact domains through participation to events & conferences, building of an expert network, and dedicated training. You will also contribute to managing and growing client relationships, the business development, promote Telos Impact in the social impact eco-system, build out our partner & advisor network, etc. Working in a start-up environment, your list of responsibilities could be endless and will be in large part up to you.
