About the Role

We’re looking for a passionate Growth Lead to join our global Growth team, to help us build relationships with founders and executives of the top tech companies in the UK and Europe. You’ll invite them to commit to give a meaningful portion of their future exit proceeds to charity, contributing to our team’s annual target of $1bn+ in new commitments.

This will involve meeting founders through diverse settings (e.g. 1-1 intros from our members, attending FP and tech/wealth ecosystem events) and using your strong foundation in relationship management best practices to move prospects from intention to action. Combined with Founders Pledge’s focus on high-impact philanthropy, there are few roles which can have as much positive social impact.  
Reporting to our US Managing Director, this is a brilliant opportunity to lead and build our presence in the UK and Europe, focusing on finding entrepreneurs who are committed to maximising the impact of their future philanthropy. 

You'll be responsible for:
* Meeting virtually and in-person with entrepreneurs from some of the most exciting tech companies in the UK and Europe to compel them to pledge to give to charity. You’ll confidently tell our story, helping prospective members understand what Founders Pledge has to offer in maximising their impact in the world.
* Developing strong lists of potential members and actively reaching out to them in a persuasive and authentic way.
* Staying on top of tech industry news in the UK and Europe in order to inform your prospect research and prioritization. 
* Ensuring our CRM (Salesforce) is up to date with accurate and reliable data on our members and prospective members.
* Speaking about Founders Pledge at events and webinars. 
* Management of special projects as they arise to continually improve how we work, including cross-functional coordination.

About the Organisation

At Founders Pledge, our mission is to empower entrepreneurs to do immense good. Since launching in 2015, we’ve raised over $10 billion for the most impactful social causes. We offer the simplest path to impact for successful entrepreneurs, providing end-to-end giving infrastructure, pioneering research, and access to a worldwide network of experts. In other words, we help tech leaders become strategic philanthropists. Our 1700+ members include the people behind industry-leading companies such as Airbnb, UiPath, Dropbox, Skype, Spotify, and Uber.
