A marketplace connecting high-growth start-ups to a network of freelance consultants and experts ranging from strategy and fundraising advisors, early stage experts, growth hacking specialists, route-to-market strategists to part-time CFOs…
A strong advisor in start-up strategy, fundraising, marketing plan, monetization, scalability and growth hacking is often the difference between an incredibly successful start-up and one that just gets by – and often fails.
