What We Do

Our Work 

We focus on finding smart generalists from consulting, banking, big  tech and startups to fill strategic and operational roles at top startups.

Business Operations

Also known as "Biz Ops" is a new term for the elite group of generalists who can jump into any problem with any part of the organization and own it from end-to-end.

Why your startup also needs a Biz Ops team


Many companies also call this  "Business Development." You'll interface with senior leaders at other startups or corporate partners to build products, co-brand marketing, and more.

Why and when strategic partnerships make sense for a startup

Chief of Staff

Often requires a high level of ownership and responsibility within any startup. Direct access to the CEO and executive team provides exposure to the critical operational decisions.

Chief of Staff, a Critical Role Among High Growth Startups


At a startup, this has a specific meaning to "growth marketing" at B2C companies. This means deep analytics around user acquisition, retention, and conversion.

Every company needs a growth manager

Strategic Finance

Sometimes this is the not-so-sexy aspect of finance. However, at a startup, it can span fundraising, strategic planning, sales ops, and tracking the health of the business.

Customer Success

At a series A/B startup, this is NOT account management. You are the voice of the customer for product development and are expected to build the entire commercial side of the business.
