Join a fast-paced team that’s making a tangible difference for disabled entrepreneurs.


2Gether-International, is a non-for-profit startup that is changing the way people think about disabilities. We support entrepreneurs with disabilities and harness their innate entrepreneurship skills to help them achieve their employment goals.


On the heels of its first major grant by the Deputy Mayor for Planning and Economic Development, 2Gether is seeking a motivated Program Manager to join the team.


This role is integral to the success of 2Gether-International’s first accelerator program. If you’re interested in the opportunity to build something new in order to positively affect the lives of disabled entrepreneurs, this opportunity is for you!


Responsibilities

Daily Responsibilities:

  • Managing communications and logistics in weekly speaker events. This includes ensuring that speakers and participants have everything they need for a valuable, productive event.
  • Managing HR needs of the program. This includes managing necessary paperwork and records of contractors on the program, ensuring they are paid promptly and that goal tasks are being completed.
  • Monitoring the program and ensuring that goals are being met. This means keeping a pulse on the progress of program participants and facilitators - ensuring that their needs are being met.
  • Managing and monitoring the program budget. While this role will not be solely responsible for the budget of the program, candidates should expect to learn about business budgeting and will be expected to create monthly and quarterly reports regarding the grant budget.

Long-Term Responsibilities:

  • Creating repeatable processes. As this is 2Gether-International’s pilot program, one of the goals of this position is to make the program as effortlessly repeatable as possible. This means creating and managing processes that smoothly dictate the entire progress of choosing participants, running and concluding the program.
  • Building relationships in the ecosystem. Individuals in this role will create and maintain relationships with other leaders in the disability and entrepreneurship space to help ensure that our members are getting the best possible support.
  • Researching and identifying potential opportunities. This means keeping a finger on the pulse of the issues facing the disability space to help identify areas of opportunities for 2Gether-International’s program and overall approach.
