More Details…

Ignite Bermuda is Bermuda’s privately funded business accelerator for entrepreneurs and community leaders. Ignite requires an energetic, inspiring and commercial Enabler to work with entrepreneurs, lead accelerator training, and manage the collaborative community space. Reporting to the Accelerator Executive Director and liaising with the Board and local stakeholders, you will:

  • Coach and mentor the entrepreneurs, hold them accountable for their progress during the programme, and help them understand and prepare for their challenges.
  • Act as a sounding board – helping them plan, focus and measure their success and failures.
  • Assist in the creation and continued development of a trusted, inclusive and supportive eco-system for entrepreneurship in Bermuda.
  • Support the Ignite Hub's day-to-day activities, including managing internal and external events, public presentations, and liaising with the community.

You also need to be a great presenter and be able to deliver workshops and present to individuals as well as large groups and external stakeholders.
