As the Venture Design Lead for Store Nº8’s incubation team, you will work with a blended team of strategists, operators, technologists, and entrepreneurs to design and prepare early-stage, validated concepts for the next phase of incubation. These concepts will have already been through a rigorous initial phase of problem discovery and opportunity analysis. Your role will further validate the solution and define the optimal business and operating models that maximize desirability, viability and feasibility of the new venture.
You will lead a blended team of relevant operators from Walmart, incubation strategists from Store Nº8, and external experts through a human-centered, discovery-driven process, to design the detailed value levers, stage-gates, talent, technology, and other functional pillars of the venture. You will also validate any build-buy/partner analyses to catalyze execution and bring together the initial operating team. Upon completion of the Venture Design phase each concept will be ready to move into the Store Nº8 portfolio as a development phase start-up company.
