Entrepreneur in Residence (m/f/x) @ Early-Stage VC

Germany, Berlin, BerlinFounder & Entrepreneurs in Residence

Job description


Atlantic Labs is a breeding ground for new ambitious companies. We work with extraordinary entrepreneurs, whose innovations will define the next era of business and tech. We provide (pre-) seed venture capital and the optimal environment to kick off the next aspiring start-up. Our team continuously investigates opportunities in spaces we believe in. In every field we pursue, our work constantly revolves around one question: what can we do to increase the chances of success for our ventures? 

Our newest approach: supporting Entrepreneurs in Residence (EiR) to join us as a founder and start a business. The best place in Europe to get from zero to 0.5 is available to founders early in their journey. When we say early, we actually mean it- all you need is the conviction to start a company. 

An individual, founder-first approach. This is not an incubator, not an accelerator nor a company builder. Instead, you are in the driver's seat to build the next generational company and we're here to support you incorporating the venture, providing you with pre-seed funding, and staying by your side for the long run. 

If founding a technology company is for you, even if you don’t yet have a fleshed-out idea and haven’t quit your day job- reach out. 


As an EiR you are expected to start your own business. While we provide VC backing, strong operational support as well a network of tech luminaries, you take the lead to kickstart the business. You will hold a majority of the equity and we trust you to call the shots. 


  • Starting a company is as much art as it is science. You are in a cohort of 1. We are not an incubator and there are no batches. Tailor-made, instead of mass-produced.

  • You are the key player, we are the cheerleader. The founding team keeps the majority of the shares as long as Atlantic is the sole investor. 

  • Our team will provide you with financial, operational, and strategic support, and everything you need to know to validate your business model and build your own venture
    • Growth and go-to-market strategy

    • Fundraising

    • People & Talent

    • Marketing & PR

  • Monthly financial support to cover basic living costs. You read that correctly, you don't just get funding, you are also paid a monthly amount to pay some of the daily costs. 

  • We have a dedicated team to help you hire your early team from co-founders to key hires.

  • Space in our amazing office in Berlin Mitte (incl. rooftop terrace)

  • Mentoring and advisory from our network of scientific, tech, and business founders

  • Access to the Atlantic Labs and FoodLabs network with over 150+ portfolio companies and expert

  • Count on long-term commitment. We stand on our founders’ sides for the long run.

  • Companies like zenjob, medwing, kadmos and coleap were are all started by founders that were once in your shoes
