About the job

This job is for you if you are excited about 1) organising events aimed at strengthening the local entrepreneurial ecosystem in Myanmar at our Seedspace (co-working) where you will be based and 2) traveling in the region to organise other events related to entrepreneurship, especially in Thailand and Southeast Asia. You will organize pitching competitions, thought leadership events, and work on our Seedstars Asia Summit that reunites the top tech startups from 16 different ecosystems across the region.
