We will hire in September a junior consultant (intern) who will help following and pushing forward our recent consulting activity. If you are passionate by science and emerging technologies and their impact on businesses, curious, proactive, positive and fast-learner (a superstar basically) you will be interested in this position and we would love to have you in the team!

Who are we?

We are a global organization on a mission to accelerate the transfer of breakthrough technologies into real world solutions by empowering and connecting the most promising deep-tech entrepreneurs across the globe with the right enablers (corporations, investors, accelerators, mentors…).

To know more about deep-tech please refer to the following report co-published with the Boston Consulting Group (our global partner):

The first step to build this global actionable network is to identify the most promising deep-tech startups through competitions, culminating with our Global Challenge gathering 3000 science-entrepreneurs from 120 countries.

Then we invite the best startups to events all around the globe (we developed local hubs in 8 countries) including our flagship event the Hello Tomorrow Global Summit in Paris on October 26th & 27th this year where we help the 3 000 participants explore the latest deep-tech trends and we facilitate qualitative connections.

This new activity you will be working on?

For 4 years, Hello Tomorrow has been fostering collaborations between the world’s most promising startups and industry leaders. Such collaborations are especially important for deep tech startups since bringing an emerging technology to the market requires expertise and commercial and industrial capacity that mature corporations can provide.

To make sure the corporate piece is well integrated in the innovation ecosystem we are developing a consulting activity in partnership with We Design Services (one of the French leaders in open innovation management) to help medium and large companies

  • Understand use cases behind emerging technologies, and how they can impact their business

  • Define the target ecosystem to leverage opportunities related to emerging technologies, and find startups within the Hello Tomorrow network who could fit in this ecosystem

  • Initiate and valorize collaborations with startups, which can be challenging due to cultural differences and the gap between startups agility and corporate processes

This is where you we need you!
