Senior Venture Build Architect

We’re BCG Digital Ventures. Welcome.
We are an ever-growing global team of the world’s most remarkable entrepreneurs, designers, engineers, venture architects, product experts and investors. We build ventures for the world's most important global companies.
This is BCG Digital Ventures. Adventure awaits you…
 
Introducing DV Growth, our Venture Build Team.
We have entered a decade of disruption of large corporate business models, driven by a step change in the power of technology and the audacity and speed of start-ups. To be fit for the future, visionary companies will deliberately re-imagine themselves by injecting or attacking established models with new ideas fuelled by technology.  The BCG DV Growth Cohort consists of world-class leaders, growth hackers and business operators who stand up our ventures with the strategies, systems and processes to drive rapid scale.
 
Together, we are helping corporations own the next horizon of innovation. 
 
In a startup, the post-funding shift from incubation to commercialization involves countless decisions that must be made. Consideration must be given to the right software systems to run the business, including systemizing the entire customer-facing workflow.  Legal, financial systems, HR systems, facilities and insurance requirements for the business must be determined.  We empower our Ventures (Newcos) with strategic guidance and a comprehensive build process.  Using our deep operational expertise to guide new companies towards launch and commercialization, we provide the playbook on how to set-up and operate a business.

  • Project manage the implementation of systems and processes throughout a venture build.
  • Develop operational playbooks that support the creation and growth of new businesses by laying the foundation for legal, finance and business operations.
  • Research new and disruptive tools and vendors, providing recommendations for a portfolio of solutions for incremental stages to support scale.
