Venture and Investment ManagerKenya
Role: Venture and Investment Manager – Remote Work Opportunity Location: Nairobi, Kenya Position: Full-time permanent Who We Are EWB exists to create a world where everyone has the opportunity and the agency to live a life of meaning and value.

We seek to support socially transformative enterprises that have the potential to alter the structure or dynamics of a sector/industry, creating more inclusive business models that can give agency and opportunity for large numbers of underserved people in Sub Saharan Africa. Because of the importance of gender equality as a foundation for inclusive and sustainable development, we take a gender lens to our work. We seek to support indigenous owners and diverse teams as they bring personal experience and are uniquely positioned to build sustainable and disruptive businesses in Africa.

Specifically, EWB’s investment model offers the following to each of our partners: Talent placement: We recruit, train and place highly-skilled talent right into the management teams of our ventures on targeted capacity development missions shaped and determined by the founders/teams.

Ongoing portfolio management: We are usually observers on our partners Boards of directors and spare […]
