We’re Hiring! Program Coordinator, Climate Ventures

We’re hiring a Program Coordinator for Climate Ventures (and we’re very excited about it)! You can find the full posting details and a link to apply here. Read on for key details, and please consider spreading the word to those you think may be interested. Applications close June 27, 2021. 

About the Program

Accelerate from Anywhere (AfA) is a new, national program run in partnership with Foresight, the Centre for Social Innovation, and the Centre for Social Innovation Institute. AfA will provide an acceleration ramp across Canada, taking early-stage for-profit and nonprofit enterprises working in climate and water technology solutions from idea to impact. AfA will assess the needs of entrepreneurs, pair them with the most suitable accelerator program, and deliver best-in-class programming to support their growth and impact. The program aims to serve 160 entrepreneurs in its first year, with at least half identifying as underrepresented in tech (women and BIPOC, as well as rural and remote, founders, especially).

About the Role

Climate solutions + entrepreneurship = your jam. The climate crisis fires you up (no pun intended) and you’re looking for a role that’s focused on supporting the innovation we need to address our collective environmental challenges. Our team is passionate, hard-working, and keen to support the Program Coordinator in their learning and growth to make this new program successful, together.

Working closely with the Senior Programs Manager of Climate Ventures, the position will contribute to the establishment and successful delivery of the first year of AfA. The Program Coordinator will support the program’s operations, data gathering and evaluation; play a core role in program recruitment, marketing and events; and help to manage the AfA community of entrepreneurs and advisors between CSI and Foresight.

Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis until June 27, 2021. Please submit your full application here, including your resume and cover letter as soon as you are interested.
