Make a real impact with your sustainable and innovative ideas.
Expand your horizon, nework and skillset in a fantastic environment.
We spend at least 1/3 of our days at work. Drowned in our daily routine, we often ignore what’s happening around us and don’t have time to reflect on how, where and with whom we work. Oftentimes, we adapt to existing norms and company culture that have existed for generations and accept them thinking there’s no room for change. But COVID-19 challenged us in a way that we couldn’t continue business-as-usual anymore. Millions of people had to adjust their routines and find new ones, realizing that there was room for change. The way we as a society handled the situation has proven us that we have the ability to adapt to new circumstances and find solutions for most pressing issues. Moreover, in the next years, a whole new generation will enter the job market. They have different expectations from their employers and a value system that is built around the topic of sustainability.
Now that is why Futury is looking for innovative ideas to address the new challenge statement:
Join Schaeffler, Deutsche Bank, Handelsblatt Media Group, Bain & Company, Green Cycle and many other partners in “The Mission IV: Work – Be Next!” to build the future of work together. The application is open now - hurry up!
The Mission is a series of 12 innovation projects aiming to bring sustainability into different fields of the industry. Futury connects market leaders of each industry with young talents ready and willing to challenge the status quo. In an intensive three-month entrepreneurship program, teams of talents and corporate partners co-create and collaborate on innovative concepts, products and services that have a social, economic and/or environmental impact on the society. On that journey, Futury equips you with everything you need to succeed:
Think of it as an all-inclusive entrepreneurship experience with endless opportunities!
With the initiative The Mission, we want to pursue one goal. To bring sustainability into various fields of the industry. To this purpose, all The Mission partners have jointly defined 12 different topic areas. Each of these areas will be covered by one innovation project, i.e. a Mission. Each project lasts three months and consists of different phases, which are described below.
To participate in the project, you do not necessarily have to apply with an idea. If you apply without an idea, you will be assigned to a team that already has an idea. But maybe your idea is the next big thing? Apply with your idea to find out!
The project aims to find innovative approaches to the way, where and with whom all of us work.
Every employee journey is unique, depending on the industry, location and career level people are in. When brainstorming your initial innovative idea, imagine what a typical day of an employee looks like and identify potential problems they might be facing along the way. See an exemplary Daily Employee Journey below:
YOUR IDEATION PROCESS:
In The Mission, you have motivated and driven young talents on the one side and big established companies on the other side. Bringing them together creates an incredible microcosmos where you can really change things.
Besides an energizing team spirit, you become part of a potential new start-up in a setting incomparable to anything else. Or can you think about a place where you get all the freedom you need to be creative and being paid for creating your own company?
Fill out the application form. Applying as a team? Ask your team-mates to apply individually and enter the same team name - be creative ;)
Attach your CV (in English or German)
OPTIONAL: Attach your idea. Use the idea form below or feel free to use your own template.
Absolutely. We pay our teams a monthly salary. Moreover, we cover all project-related costs, like traveling to partners during the project as well as the costs for the prototype.
As long as you can commit to the project full-time! For you to get the best out of this experience, we recommend applying after having finished at least 5 semesters of your Bachelor studies . If you feel like you're ready anyway - give it a try!
Very close! We involve the partners already in the Onboarding Week and organize at least one mandatory weekly debrief with them. Each team gets at least one contact person in the partner companies for all their questions and requests.
Absolutely! But please be aware that each team-mate must apply individually. Follow the instructions in the application form. A dream team would normally consist of a Project Manager, a Software Engineer, a Product Designer and a Sustainability Expert. But there is no standard formula - it always depends on the idea.
Not before the application deadline. To make sure we give every applicant the same chance to be part of the project, we take our time to screen and process every application. The final-final results usually come 4-6 weeks before the project starts.
We match talents based on their skills and their background, to make sure that everyone can contribute to the outcomes in a different way. Because there is no innovation without diversity!
Yes. Our projects take place on-site, meaning that we expect you to come to your office in TechQuartier at least 4 times a week. Bonding with your team-mates and learning and growing together is an experience worth moving to Frankfurt for. And it's a nice city!
We don't recommend multitasking. The participation in the project means you are 100% committed to your idea and your team and don't have any other occupations.
As exception can be made for those students who will not have to attend classes during the project but only have to write a final thesis instead. In that case, we expect you to put your main efforts into the project and write your thesis in the evenings/on the weekends.
From finding your next big job to creating your own start-up - it's up to you what you get out of this experience!
You can apply without an idea. During the application process, we will help you to develop one or we match you with other participants who are still searching for team members but already have an idea.
Because you're your own boss! In the project, you and your team decide on what idea you work on and how you develop it. We give you a platform to create and grow, the rest is up to you. Sky's the limit!
Just like every other company, we comply with health and safety regulations of the state of Hesse. Since the state allows us to work on-site, we expect our Talents to be in Frankfurt for the duration of the project and participate on-site. A remote participation in the project is not possible.
The first interview is just a phone call. The second interview is a video-chat. Should you pass the second interview, we will invite you to our exclusive recruiting event in Frankfurt that will take place end of September. You will get all the information on that in your interviews.
