Our in-house platform team spans product research, product design, software development, business development, acquisition marketing, brand marketing, legal, back office, and more.

25m Supply Chain is a vertical studio within 25madison that invests in and incubates software and tech-enabled services for today’s supply chain and industrial challenges.

Entrepreneurs-in-Residence at 25m Supply Chain ideate, test, and validate new ideas in the supply chain, logistics, and industrials spaces with the support of our Venture Development team. You’ll work closely with our team of experienced operators and executives to validate an opportunity, develop an investment case, and build the solution – leveraging our people, playbooks, process and network. We will provide you with the initial capital to get going, hands-on support in the building process (discovery, UX, engineering, product, marketing), and continued advice and guidance as you launch and scale the company.

What you’ll do

Alongside the support of our team, you will be responsible for validating a concept in industrial manufacturing software for original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) that solves for pain points in requisitions, contracting, and other back-office tasks that can benefit from workflow management and automation. You’ll ultimately bring this company to market after refining the concept. Key responsibilities throughout the incubation will include

  • Conduct primary and secondary research on hypothesized innovation (software for industrial manufacturing)
  • Test desirability, feasibility, and viability of hypothesized solutions
  • Build the investment case for the hypothesized solution
  • Develop and execute on a business model, go-to-market strategy, and product roadmap for the hypothesized solution
  • Work with a corporate partner to design and execute pilots that test the MVP
  • Build and manage the company P&L to ensure financial targets are met
  • Hire A+ teammates
  • Lead fundraising efforts
  • Take the company from idea to unicorn!

Who You Are

  • An operator and executer who is highly motivated to wear many hats and scale a business from the ground up, from 0 to 1
  • A strategist with a strong entrepreneurial spirit – you may have been a startup founder in the past, held a leadership role at a fast-growing, venture-backed startup, or been an early employee
  • Deep experience in industrial manufacturing with a clear understanding of industry dynamics. This could be demonstrated by having built OEM products, led teams in mechanical engineering roles or related production, or delivered products to market.
  • Product management and/or software-oriented experience a plus
  • Preference for an individual with a mechanical engineering background
  • Excellent verbal and written communication skills
  • Experience with the tech stack at industrial businesses also a bonus
