Nexxworks is looking for a Customer Activation Champion
Do you feel Business Development is just a synonym for putting the customer first? Do you have the creative mind-set of an entrepreneur? Are you particularly attracted to fluid business...
Who are we and why should you join us?
Nexxworks inspires and connects innovators all over the world. We help organizations kickstart their innovation – through our many innovation programs – by confronting them with the latest evolutions in business and technology and by encouraging them to combine a long-term vision with short-term initiatives. Our thought-leading community of innovation keynote speakers Pascal Coppens, Peter Hinssen, Nancy Rademaker, Steven Van Belleghem and Rik Vera is the beating heart of our network.
Our customers are typically C-level or mid-management innovation-thirsty profiles from international companies, who are eager to uncover the exciting business possibilities that come with exponential change and (technology) disruption. To help and inspire them, we collaborate with a very diverse ecosystem of renowned thought-leaders, disruptive start-ups, C-level corporate pioneers, experts, academics, investors, consultants and highly innovative entrepreneurs.
Our kick-ass Ghent-based start-up team is an awesome combination of passionately young and highly experienced champions and now we are looking for someone to help us conquer the Benelux, the world … and possibly the universe (not necessarily in that order).
We were hoping that would be YOU!

- Developing and implementing an international commercial strategy, in close collaboration with with your sales colleagues, the CCO and the rest of the nexxworks team
- Chasing new opportunities and crossing borders towards new markets
- Managing the sales budget with a keen eye for commercial results
- Enchanting the current customers by turning them into partners and champions
- Expanding the customer portfolio by inspiring companies about the need for Day After Tomorrow thinking
- Making sure that nexxworks becomes an acknowledged premium innovation brand
- Fostering and coaching of the sales mindset of our entire team
Who are we hoping that you are?

- You thrive in a fluid start-up environment

Last, but absolutely not least, … what do we have to offer?
