What we do
The Merantix Venture Studio guides 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 150+ 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.
Generative AI is a recent AI application with the potential to disrupt the Creative Industries. Already today, advanced language processing and computer vision models help architects, software engineers, artists, and designers in their projects. The United Nations estimates that the global Creative Economy is worth $2tn annually. As the creative economy grows and the technology matures, specialists expect that an increasing amount of this market will be captured by these solutions, which have a strong cost advantage. The global generative design market, for example, is expected to grow to $7bn in 2030. We believe that Generative AI is still far from its full potential and we are looking for a motivated founder to build a venture in this space.
We are looking for extraordinarily driven, capable, and visionary talent with an outstanding track record of personal, academic, and professional achievements.
Entrepreneurial drive and growth mindset;
A Bachelor’s degree from an excellent university (Master’s degree or more is a plus);
- Ideally a minimum of 2-3 years of professional work experience (Start-up, VC, or Consulting exposure is a plus);
Strong business sense and decision-making ability based on analytical thinking skills;
A strong, demonstrated interest or previous experience with computer vision, NLP, or the creative industry in general is a plus.
What we offer
We define ourselves by a culture of ownership but also collaboration. In the end, you will be responsible for leading this venture from 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.
