FAQs for Entrepreneurs in Residence:

  1. How do we choose who we work with Beam?

    We carefully choose the people we work with by assessing skills, strengths, and potential. We don’t choose by experience only! All of the decisions made at Beam are based on a team effort, for entrepreneurs in residence and employees alike! Everyone has a say in who we work with and why.

  2. What happens after I get in touch with Beam regarding an opportunity?

    The first step is a video interview with our people operations manager. The goal of this call is to get an understanding of who you are as a person. Think more in terms of values, mission and motivation. No need to prepare anything for this call!

    If we can imagine a path to success for you at Beam, we will give you access to our current problem-validation opportunities. You have the freedom to choose a problem you’d like to tackle. If there is an entrepreneur in residence already working on the same problem, we will make sure you meet them and see if you can imagine working together.

    The final step will be to discuss validation details with our Head of Venture Development or our Managing Director, based on which problem you choose. In that discussion, we expect you to ask as many questions as possible about the problem, possible solution-visions, what has already been done on the subject as well as about how Beam operates in general. Yes, we want to woo you to join us at this point, but you should also make it worth our while!

  3. How long are the meetings?

    The video-call interview with our people operations manager will last around 30-45 minutes. The meeting with the validation lead of the problem of your choice depends on you, but it usually goes for about 45 minutes up to 1.5 hours.

  4. How many interviews will I have?

    You can expect a minimum of 2 interviews (as listed above), however if needed, we can also book an extra session or a call for a consultation!

  5. What should my resume look like?

    We are looking for entrepreneurs who have a track record of notable professional and personal achievements, who can present a continuous lust for learning and who are great storytellers. A professional network in the startup scene is an added bonus. Check out the detailed description of what we are looking for in the perfect entrepreneur in residence here.

  6. Is there a deadline for my application?

    We are always looking, i.e there isn’t a deadline!

  7. What does it mean to be an Entrepreneur in Residence at Beam?

    We will offer you pre-validated logistics problems, not solutions! Pre-validated problems increase the likelihood of success due to better chances of product-market fit! You have the freedom to develop your own business model and business plan. Depending on the scope of the problem, you can take (unfair) advantage of having a direct connection to the BEUMER Group.

    The BEUMER Group, the family-owned company we are proud to be a part of, is a more than an 85 years old and carries it’s traditions on through Beam. Essential to our company’s DNA is that we are not looking for easy money, but want to help you build something really big over many years.

    At Beam, you will be advised and coached on business development – and have access to our network of experts. You will receive our extensive support in searching – and finding – suitable co-validators/co-founders. We encourage you to also tap into your own network and propose a potential co-validator with your application.You have round-the-clock access to our office and meeting rooms and can work with the technical equipment that suits you best. You can work together with like-minded entrepreneurs in an atmosphere that makes you want to succeed.

    Remember: This is not a job! Joining Beam as an entrepreneur in residence means you are paving the way towards becoming a co-founder of a startup. You will receive a monthly remuneration of 2,500 € (gross) for the duration of your validation (3-4 months) – so that you can fully concentrate on your validation.

  8. Does Beam assist with obtaining a visa and a working permit in Germany?

    Unfortunately, the remuneration and the short duration of the contract between you and Beam do not qualify you to obtain a visa and a working permit via Beam, hence why we do not have a visa program.
