Stanford University
India, Maharashtra - Full Time

Stanford India Private Limited seeks (2) qualified candidates for the role of Seed Facilitator. The positions are based in Delhi and Mumbai. The Seed Facilitator will deliver advising and tools necessary to transform India business leaders and their companies. The Seed Facilitator enables growth and scale by providing practical, insightful and inspirational guidance to small and medium-sized business leaders and their management teams.
Building on Stanford's decades-long history of educating innovators in Silicon Valley, Stanford Institute for Innovation in Developing Economies (Stanford Seed) brings this innovative mindset and practical business training to entrepreneurs in Africa and India.
The 12-month-long Seed Transformation Program (STP) curriculum is customized for founders and senior leaders of high-potential small and medium-sized companies in developing economies who have the potential to, and are committed to, growing and scaling their businesses.
During 4 individual week-long highly interactive sessions over nine months, leaders/founders will be exposed to, and deploy, tools and methodologies to help grow and transform their businesses.
In seeking transformative growth of businesses, traditional classroom learning is not enough. That is why the STP program is built to be highly interactive, and to allow leaders to both discover and apply the tools and methodologies that will help them transform their businesses.
Following each of the 4 week-long curriculum sessions, leaders/founders will share their learning with their management teams through Stanford Seed facilitated workshops. Leaders and their teams will also work on projects designed to plan for the growth and scale of their companies. By the end of 9 months, each leader/founder will complete a Transformation Capstone: a plan for growth and scale of the leader's business.
The successful candidate will have responsibility to:
  • Translate the intensive curriculum of value chain operations, accounting, strategy/organizational design, finance, marketing, governance and other related fields delivered during the Stanford Transformation program (STP) into practical insight for leaders and management teams of small to mid-sized companies in India.
