A career at Founders Intelligence looks like

If you’re excited by strategy, building new ventures, and want to help scale a new type of consultancy, join us!

We’re looking for exceptional entry-level analysts to join our growing team based in London. As an analyst at FI, you are responsible for uncovering and analysing the information needed to identify new opportunities and solve difficult problems, as well as preparing the materials to effectively communicate our recommendations to our clients.

Diversity in inclusion strategy 

We strongly believe that diverse teams are the best engines of innovation and new ideas. We also recognise the failure of the tech and venture space to provide equal funding, career opportunities and support to minority and/or underprivileged groups. We feel we have a part to play in this story and want to build a future FI that is diverse, inclusive and ever learning.

We are very interested in receiving and implementing suggestions for policies, structures or actions that will help create a diverse and inclusive organisation that promotes, remunerates and allocates responsibility based purely on ability and contribution, and which listens to every voice equally.

We are partnering with YSYS (Your Startup Your Story) – a startup community dedicated to connecting diverse people with opportunities in tech – to leverage their network and expertise as we build our approach.

Broadly, we are looking at ways we can improve Diversity and Inclusion at FI along 3 verticals:

Our People: We want to build a diverse team of individuals with different backgrounds, life experiences and points of view which will contribute to making FI a stronger, fairer place to work. 

Our Culture: We want to create an environment where everyone at FI feels respected, included and supported, and where everyone feels comfortable sharing their experiences. 

Our Brand: We want to champion diversity in our work and in our networks to build a better, more inclusive future with the companies and partners we work with.
