US Business Development Manager

Grantify

Summary

Grantify is a rapidly-growing UK startup now launching in the US. They help companies win government grants and other funding opportunities. Grantify are seeking an entrepreneurial Business Development Manager to be part of their new US sales team.

You will report directly into the Business Development lead in London. This is not an outbound sales role. Instead you will be a B2B ‘closer’, with a non-salesy approach. You must already have or be interested in developing a working knowledge of the innovative technology being developed by Grantify’s startup clients. 

Think of yourself as a Shark on the popular TV series – you will be screening opportunities and making quick decisions as to who to take forwards, and how to help them succeed.

About Grantify

Since revolutionising the UK and EU grant funding landscape using tech, securing over $60m in funds for their clients over a 12 month period and being featured in the Guardian and Telegraph newspapers, Grantify is now a fully-fledged incubator for helping businesses and creative ideas find funding, scale and bring their ambitions to life.

Grantify has a full time business development team of 10 people, with close to 40 employees in total.

They are currently expanding to the USA and this is a prime opportunity for an ambitious individual to prove themselves as a foundational member of this new team.

Key Responsibilities

  • Closing warm leads. You will have a history of success in closing and working with B2B clients, incluing strong remote (phone/ video) communication skills – without being too salesy.

Desirable

  • Entrepreneurial – experience building or running your own business
  • A degree of technical knowledge, ideally with experience in SaaS, technical account management, IT solutions for Enterprise – or similar

Likely Personality Traits

  • Highly ambitious – thrives in a commission-focused culture
  • Flexible – willing to work as part of a small team
  • Entrepreneurial – intellectually curious with a real interest in innovative, tech-led businesses
