Chief Operating Officer (COO) & Co-Founder
Partnerwise Group is an investment vehicle focused on building new businesses. We’re obsessed with student loans, and we want you to help us solve the problem.
Partnerwise Group has a long entrepreneurial history of creating, building and selling businesses in the financial services, loyalty and affinity industries. Along the way we’ve invested in early-stage companies, but at our core we’re builders.
We’re looking to build a team of co-founders to develop and execute a web start-up in the student lending space. Unless you live under a rock, you understand the magnitude of the student loan problem. The average student graduates with $25,250 in debt and won’t pay off that debt until their mid-40s. In the student loyalty space, the market leader is a dot com relic. There is an open opportunity in the market at the convergence of student loans, loyalty, and affinity marketing.
Who do we want you to be?
There’s no formula for what makes a great team, but intelligence, passion, and enthusiasm are musts. We’re very open-minded and ultimately we’ll be more focused on fit, but here are a few backgrounds we’d find interesting:
Additionally, here are a few key qualities we want:
What do we offer?
Based on past successes, this venture is already funded. The right person will be offered salary and co-founder’s equity upon joining the team. This is an unmatched opportunity to earn a living while working on a start-up that could have an incredible social impact and disrupt the entire student-lending ecosystem.
With that said, we need to walk before we run by starting the conversation. If you think we should talk, pass long your resume, social media presence, and a short blurb about yourself, your entrepreneurial experience, and your thoughts on the student loan mess.
