What is Menyala?

We are a venture building team founded by Temasek, a global investment firm headquartered in Singapore. Menyala has a 2-pronged mission: 

  1. Create repeatable methodology and capabilities to turn ideas into scalable industry-leading ventures in the realm of decentralized technologies
  2. Launch pioneering ventures by end 2022 that drive exponential value for people in a new wave of previously unimaginable businesses and business models

We recently started the search for a CEO for our new project called Avalon. Project Avalon seeks to help the next million music artists in the world to survive and thrive, find ways to improve their craft, build audiences into communities, and develop artist-fan relationships for the long run. Web3 methods and approaches allow Avalon to experiment in ways never possible until now (think tokenization, contribute-to-earn, and decentralized solutions). We’ve spent months in deep design research to understand the problems and needs of artists and audiences and are now at concept validation stage. To take Avalon further, we now need to hire a CEO who will turn it into a compelling venture and work with us to launch and scale it. Below you’ll find more about the role, what we’re looking for, and how you can get in touch.

Sound interesting? Here’s what we’re looking for:

The candidates we hope to meet could be from two different career tracks. One could be an entrepreneurial startup founder who already has zero-to-one and one-to-ten experience and is looking for the next big thing. Another candidate could be a seasoned executive leader from top innovative companies who is ready to do something brave and different, knows what good looks like at scale, and how to build teams to get there. Exact years of experience is not really a high priority here, and neither is technical depth. What is a high priority would be the passion for solving problems, building great teams, and excitement for the potential of Web3 to underpin game changing solutions.

Here are a few more details you should know:

  • Transforms ideas into viable businesses, and a proven ability to lead ventures
  • Provides tactical and strategic support for research, testing, business model validation, partner engagement, product definition, strategy, engineering, and go-to-market planning
  • Builds the vision, the adventure and the values that differentiate the venture from other organizations, and makes it a source of pride for everyone to log in every day
  • Hires and develops great talent
  • An idea-generator who is skilled in critical thinking, implementation, and communication
  • Ability to thrive in an entrepreneurial environment, not hung up on hierarchy
  • Domain expertise in the music industry is a plus
  • Ideally located in Singapore
