Why only top roles?
TheFunded.com Members are all seasoned entrepreneurs and business leaders, so it is important to provide opportunities that will interest the Membership.
Finding passionate CoFounders is difficult. Most times, companies are started by teams that know one another through work or school, versus having a shared passion and common goals. TheFunded wants to change this dynamic, helping passionate teams come together and build great businesses.
Why Board Directors?
Most venture deals require Independent Board Members, and these Board seats are rarely filled by truly independent representatives. Many leading CEO Members of TheFunded.com would be willing to serve as Independent Directors, so we saw this as a unique and valuable service to the community.
Why CEOs or Managing Directors?
Entrepreneurs that start companies often look for their replacement as the company grows with the assistance of venture firms and other vendors. This process is expensive and time consuming. Everyone in this value chain, including prospective candidates, are frequent visitors to TheFunded.com, so we saw this as a logical service that will make life easier for everyone.
What are the best sectors?
Members come from a variety of industries, including technology, software, online, biotech, life sciences, and clean technology sectors. Members can easily refer opportunities to people that they know, which expands the reach of a posting exponentially.
How many people will reply?
This is a new service. Given the responsiveness of Members, we expect that good opportunities will receive a half dozen qualified applicants.
