Program Manager, Comcast NBCUniversal LIFTLabs Accelerator, powered by Techstars

Philadelphia, PA 19107
  • Job Code
Role Summary

Techstars operates 45+ Accelerator programs around the globe and we are looking for a Program Manager (PM) who can lead operations of the Comcast NBCUniversal Lift Labs accelerator, powered by Techstars . The Program Manager is one half of the Accelerator program team, consisting of one operations-focused Program Manager and an investment-focused Managing Director (MD). The PM's focus is program operations: executing on the Techstars proven playbook and delivering the best possible program experience for founders. The MD's focus is investment, strategy, sourcing, and investing in the best companies from around the world.

Program managers are responsible for ensuring the successful execution of the program, including project and event management, program and mentor scheduling, execution of Demo Day and the recruiting, hiring, training and management of the seasonally hired Associate team. Experience with logistics, operations and event planning is required. Familiarity with the early-stage venture-backed company ecosystem is preferred but not required. During the 'off-season' (not running a program), PMs have the opportunity to work across the global Techstars network, assist in cross-collaborative projects, and experiential training based on best practices. Comfort working in a distributed work environment and excitement for tackling new and interesting problems as a self-starter is a must for this role.

Duties and Responsibilities:

  • Partner with the Managing Director to develop the program plan, and then own the overall responsibility for the successful execution of the program and Demo Day.
  • Ensure the program is following best practices and executing upon outlined content and curriculum of the Techstars proven playbook and delivering the best possible experience to founders, mentors, partners and other program stakeholders.
  • Own the overall logistics, operations, administration, scheduling, calendar management and event planning for the program.
  • Engage with founders, partners, mentors, and investors to ensure the successful execution of programs.
  • Engage in relationship management with the Accelerator Corporate Partner, Comcast NBCUniversal, and Techstars' Global Network Partners, in collaboration with the Techstars Partnership team.
  • Recruit, hire and manage the seasonal Associate team.
  • Represent Techstars in the local community, both actively and passively.
  • Be an active part of the Techstars network on and off-season by working on cross-collaborative projects, OKRs, and develop meaningful and beneficial relationships across the Techstars ecosystem.

  • 5+ of experience in fast-paced environments with a focus on business operations, project or program management
  • Experience in event planning and event logistics
  • Strong interest in the discourse around technology, startups, entrepreneurship, and venture capital
  • Proven attention to detail through prior work and life experience
  • Comfortable with a variety of responsibilities - we're lean so we all have to roll up our sleeves!
  • Comfortable with a minimal amount of direction but high expectations
  • Bachelor's Degree from an accredited college or university
