Executive Search Solutions for

Start-ups

With product-market-fit and traction of success with first happy customers and most likely a solid bootstrapped strategy or strong venture capital backing, you’re ready to put your first leaders in place to take the reins and ride the wave with you. You need builders, doers and charismatic leaders all in one.

It can be daunting. You might have not hired a Head of Growth before or you don’t know where to start creating a profile of a winning Sales Leader.

Perhaps you’ve built leadership teams before, but you need a targeted, efficient and specialised approach to filter the very best of talent and do it at speed. Either way, we’re here for you.
