What we do
We guide daring talents to build category-leading Artificial Intelligence ventures – from ideation over incubation to scaling! We have crafted leading ventures across all industries, from BioTech, HealthTech, Business Intelligence, Sustainability, and more. Our team consists of over 120+ entrepreneurs, scientists, and engineers from a diverse set of backgrounds and the world’s leading companies and universities, and we are backed by global investors such as Softbank, Trusted Insight, and Robert Wood Johnson Foundation.
Central to our purpose is the belief that to transfer groundbreaking research to stand-out ventures we need to work collaboratively. Therefore, we have not only cultivated a global network of partners but also built a physical home for the AI community in Germany with our AI Campus Berlin where we work and exchange with other bold minds.
We are looking for outstandingly inquisitive and driven people who are keen to change traditional industries and create new ones by harnessing the power of AI. With the support of a strong technical and entrepreneurial team, pioneering machine learning technology, operational support, and secured seed funding, you will be empowered to achieve your pursuit of becoming a founder.
Here is what your entrepreneurial path at Merantix could look like:

What we offer

In the end, you will be responsible for the process from ideation and validation over incubation to scaling, while our objective is to empower you in the best possible way! At Merantix, we believe in the value of ideation, which is why our approach gives you enough time to validate your ideas. We combine this with mentorship, sparring with the other founders at Merantix or with external partners as well as an environment that focuses on knowledge sharing. You will get complete compensation for the ideation and incubation phase, as well as a majority equity stake for you and the founding team once you are ready to take off and received the seed financing.
We are an equal-opportunity employer and value diversity. We consider all applications equally regardless of race, color, ancestry, religion, sex, national origin, sexual orientation, age, citizenship, marital status, disability, or gender identity. We strongly encourage individuals from groups traditionally underrepresented in tech to apply, and we can help with immigration.
