About this Opportunity

Technovation is seeking a 6-month temporary full time US Program Expansion Specialist based anywhere in the US to focus on increasing our number of program implementation partners in the US. The main goal of this position is to cultivate new partnerships with local entities who will successfully implement the Technovation program with girls in their context. Technovation facilitates a technology entrepreneurship program for girls 8-18 through local program implementation partners such as schools, districts, nonprofits, educational networks and associations, universities, or companies.

Key Responsibilities:

  • Develop an expansion timeline that includes outreach, follow up, partnership development, and initiation into onboarding that reaches our goal of bringing on 25 new program implementation partners for the 2025 Technovation season (September 2024-April 2025).
  • Identify strategic potential implementation partners. Use data to inform effort on growing partnerships in priority geographical regions and underserved communities.
  • Conduct outreach to prospective implementation partners, leveraging existing networks as well as communication strategies that bring in new partners.
    • Note: Technovation will provide some existing connections but the specialist should be highly skilled in creatively connecting with new prospective partners.
  • Meet virtually with prospective implementation partners to persuasively communicate Technovation’s program, ‘train the trainer’ method of supporting implementation partners, and successful models for implementing the program in a local context.
  • Follow up with prospective implementation partners to cultivate relationships and ensure they have sufficient information to determine if and how they might implement Technovation’s program.
  • Efficiently streamline prospective partners into Technovation’s onboarding process, aligning and collaborating with Technovation’s program and volunteer teams.
  • Use quantitative and qualitative data to identify factors that impact program growth and implementation partnership development. Propose improvements to Technovation’s internal systems and external messaging to increase program expansion opportunities.
  • This position could include up to 10% travel depending on funding, partnerships, and events.

  • Very strong communication skills, with the ability to engage and motivate diverse audiences even when sharing complex details
  • Skilled at developing mutually beneficial partnerships and identifying areas of mission alignment
