Co-Founder Role

Applications will close at midnight on 4th July 2022. 

Would you like a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to found your own tech company?

Fusion is not your typical business accelerator. You’ll have no-holds-barred access to our innovative technologies and we’ll provide the support and knowledge required for you to start and run the next Createc spin-out business. 

Over 2-years, you’ll learn the core aspects of building and running a start-up business through a structured training programme. Throughout, you’ll be mentored and supported by our experienced team of CEO’s, directors and industry experts. 

About the role:

  • You’ll work in a salaried role for 2 years, full time in Oxford or Cumbria (remote and hybrid working arrangements will be considered)
  • You will explore Createc technologies and IP, identify applications and assess the commercial potential of the opportunities
  • You will team up with a co-founder and develop an investable business plan
  • Pitch your business plan to secure support for your idea
  • Form an Executive Team, secure funding and start your spin-out business


Who are we looking for?

We’re looking for people who think big and dare to make their ideas a reality. You won’t be directing from the sidelines and you’ll need to be the sort of person that makes things happen. In our interviews, we’ll be looking out for people who are:

  • Creative: you’ll love imagining and finding unexpected solutions for big problems.
  • Impactful: you’ll value outcomes above everything.
  • Daring: you’ll be comfortable with being uncomfortable, brave enough to try.
  • Ethical: integrity is crucial in every leader and business that we create.


Entry Requirements:

  • A good degree, with a minimum of 4 years’ experience in industry 
  • People or product management experience within an early-stage or fast-moving technology business
  • Experience of managing a project and budget
  • A good understanding of markets, product positioning and innovative business models
  • Demonstrable passion for the applications of sensor and vision systems, image analytics and/or robotics
