We look for people who think differently and who don’t fit in in a so-called “normal” context. Our ideal Raizcorpuscle (that’s what we call ourselves) is 45% heart (cares about serving entrepreneurs), 45% brains (smart but not necessarily just academically) and 11.38% different. If you are someone who is looking to contribute to society, in particular to serve entrepreneurs and entrepreneurship, we invite you to apply for a role you’re suited to below.
