Reinvent your career with Founders Academy: "alt-MBA" with London's top startups
Have you been flirting with the idea of doing an MBA, but can’t quite justify the ROI? Are you intrigued by the startup world? Are you hungry for a career with impact?
Founders Academy is a new type of business school born out of Founders Forum, a private network of the world’s leading tech entrepreneurs started by Brent Hoberman, the founder of lastminute.com and MADE.com.
In January 2020, they’re launching a highly selective, zero tuition 9-month “alt-MBA” designed to develop the next generation of tech leaders. The programme involves 3 months of project-based learning in the classroom, alongside a hand-selected Tribe of ambitious professionals, followed by a 6-month paid placement at one of London’s most dynamic venture-backed startups, such as Bulb, Farmdrop, Ada Health, OakNorth and many more.
Designed from first principles and grounded in the science of learning, the programme reimagines not just what people learn, but how they learn, and the business model that powers it.
Applications for Tribe 1 are officially open.
Job Vacancy - Junior Analyst
An opportunity has arisen in MJ Hudson’s Data & Analytics division for an Analyst to assist in our coverage of the UK’s venture capital and tax-advantaged investment funds. Perfect for someone who has a passion for venture capital and start-ups, our dream Analyst will be an intellectually curious, driven, team-oriented person who can juggle multiple responsibilities and manage their own workflow with minimal direct supervision. As part of a small venture capital team, the successful Analyst will have a “start-up mindset”, helping both to produce great deliverables, but also with a passion for helping to drive the business forward as it seeks to scale.
Performance opportunities - Singer & Dancer Corina Kwami
My name is Corina Kwami and I am a Georgetown alum and member of the US Alumni network. I have a jazz band that tailors for a variety of jazz and jazz age events. I am inquiring if there was scope/interest in having music at some of the networking events, and if so, who would be the best to contact.
My background is in jazz, swing and latin vocals with extensive jazz, modern and tap dance experience in the US, Germany, UK and Morocco. I have played with my band "Corina Kwami & The Swing Selection" featuring Joe Bickerstaff (piano), Clement Regert (guitar), Mike Horne (drums) and Michael Searl (bass) at the Arcola Theatre (see promotional video), the Effra and have featured for the last two years as a guest vocalist with the band Wild Card at Ronnie Scott's Upstairs (see reviews) and the 606.
I would love to hear about future opportunities and the requirements.
Looking forward to hearing from you.
