Founder in Residence, CEO (Project Fabric)

London, United Kingdom /
Studio – Commercial /
Full-time
Founders Factory is unlike anywhere else. We create entirely new products from scratch and turn promising concepts into prototypes, and ultimately an MVP, validating decisions commercially along the way to attract a founding team that can spin out into a fully-fledged business.

Fabric is the latest idea to come out of the Factory and we’re looking for a Founder to build the business. 


🤑 So what is Fabric?

With the proliferation of workplace pensions and the gig economy, consumers and pension providers are faced with fragmented pension pots which make it hard to plan and optimise for retirement.

We are helping customers of pension providers to consolidate their fragmented pension pots into one place and take control of their post-retirement pension income. We’re uniquely placed, working with a Tier 1 pension provider, to bring a better AI-based solution to market. Leveraging their domain expertise, their Financial Adviser workforce, in-house operations and market reach we can turbo power this business.
