Co-Founder and Chief Sales Officer @ LaraPay B2B Fintech Startup (f/md/)
- Friedrichstraße 76, 10117 Berlin, Germany
We are Stryber - the largest independent corporate portfolio builder in Europe. We help our clients to launch new ventures from scratch (and fix the strategy behind it).
Our Approach. We build prototypes and MVPs to test and iterate business ideas quickly in the market. Later, we scale and grow the most promising ones to let them become leading solutions in their market.
This is where you come in. We carve out several successful MVPs per year into separate legal entities, hire a dedicated management team, and raise an investment round, giving the venture the best chance to become the next European unicorn!
You join the CEO to validate the business case and generate first transactions. Then, you achieve product-market fit, raise a seed investment round within the first 6-12 months and continue to grow and scale the business and team further.
The venture. We have built a platform for employers that offers their workforce a broad range of financial wellness tools. More than 50% of households don't have enough money to pay for an unexpected small bill. With our financial tools employees can prevent entering cycles of debt caused by loans, overdraft fees, high-cost-credit and payday loans. Thus we help every working individual to get rid of their financial stress. Our long-term mission is to help bring financial security and stability to the lives of working people.
