New York, NY, USA
Posted on Wednesday, May 29, 2024

About Us

25m Supply Chain is a NYC-based venture studio that builds and invests in software and tech-enabled services tackling today’s supply chain challenges. We partner with entrepreneurs from the earliest stages to build breakout businesses at our Studio. We stack the odds for success with founder-friendly terms, best-in-class resources, capital, strategic partners, and a proven process.

We’ve built a community of in-house resources, advisors and corporate partners, who are all industry experts and know what it takes to succeed when building supply chain tech startups.

25m Supply Chain is part of the 25madison venture platform. 25madison builds companies from the earliest stages and invests in Pre-Seed to Series A companies. The 25madison platform includes team members from a diverse set of companies like Flatiron Health, Snap, Lyft, LinkedIn, Google, Goldman Sachs, and Daily Harvest, but we share a common background as builders and operators, with a drive to help entrepreneurs move fast and build transformative companies. Our in-house expertise spans product research, product design, software development, business development and strategy, acquisition marketing, brand marketing, finance, legal, operations, and more.

The Opportunity

As our next 25m Supply Chain Director, you'll spearhead the incubation process, nurturing innovative ideas into thriving businesses that revolutionize the supply chain and industrials landscape. You’ll start by researching new opportunities and ideating solutions, and validating concepts. Upon validation of an idea, you’ll be responsible for hiring an entrepreneur and supporting them in building a minimum viable product and scaling the business. This role is for builders and operators who love to go from zero to one and are passionate about the supply chain and industrials ecosystem.

What You’ll Do

Leveraging the resources of the studio and our proprietary playbook, you’ll be responsible for ideating, validating, and ultimately bringing concepts to life alongside our entrepreneurs in residence (“EIRs”), i.e. incubating new businesses. Key responsibilities include but are not limited to:

  • Ideation: conducting primary and secondary research on the verticals of interest to identify pain points and opportunities for innovation
  • Networking: sourcing best-in-class Founders, EIRs and operators in residence (“OIRs”)
  • Product Management: testing desirability, feasibility, and viability of hypothesized solutions
  • Investment: building the investment case for your hypothesized solution
  • Business Strategy: developing and executing on a business model, go-to-market strategy, and product roadmap for the hypothesized solution
  • Project Management: designing and executing pilots to test the MVP

Additionally, you’ll help formulate and standardize the repeatable studio processes that drive successful incubations. This includes building networks with and sourcing potential EIRs, OIRs and corporate design partners and building out new processes to operationalize our work.

Who You Are

  • A strategist and builder with prior entrepreneurial experience – you may have been a startup founder or held a leadership role at an early-stage, venture- backed startup (Series A and earlier, ideally B2B software)
  • An experienced sector expert with knowledge of the supply chain, logistics, or industrials space
  • An executer at heart who is highly motivated to wear many hats and build a business from the ground up
  • Excellent verbal and written communication skills
  • Product management and/or software-experience
  • You don’t need to have an idea for the next big thing, but it doesn’t hurt! We want to know what excites you.
  • Minimum of six years experience
  • MBA a plus
