What we do
We are the interface between large corporations and tech startups. Corporations come to us with both conventional and non-conventional business problems, and we find game-changing ways to solve these problems through running pilots with innovative startups and scaling those solutions.
To catalyse these collaborations, we curate thematic communities, such as Food and Agriculture,  Smart(er) Cities, Health, Sustainability, etc.  These change the way we innovate to drive sustainable growth and impact.

What you would do
As a Programme Manager, you will be involved in all programme phases: from engaging business business stakeholders and scoping of their business problems; identifying and evaluating the right startups to solve these problems; facilitating the process of co-creation between the corporation and the startup, and the resulting pilot; to leveraging the success of the pilot to scale that solution.
You will ensure that the programmes/projects under your charge are delivered on time and on budget, and to the high standard that is expected of Padang & Co.  In other words, the Programme Manager makes sure that we deliver what we promise.

— Conduct research into technologies, startups, trends, or creative solutions to business briefs, and present the research, use cases and possible solutions in a report and/or as a presentation
— Perform key tasks related to administration and finance in a timely and professional manner

New business and ecosystem development
— Contribute thought leadership content, particularly future insights and trends reports, to engage with present and potential partners/clients
— Support new business activities by writing proposals or tender responses, designing programmes, making presentations, etc.
— Cultivate great partnerships with other ecosystem stakeholders, and bring your own ideas and energy in growing these relationships
Job Requirement
