  • Description of the idea

    The process of seeking out good, reliable short or long term fractional executive talent is a difficult, expensive and often a time consuming task. Virtual Execs aims to break the silos between hiring and accessing top executive tier talent.

  • Why is the timing right for your idea?

    The freelance platform market is highly distributed and lacks incumbents with a unique value proposition beyond scope amplitude and price convenience. This creates a lacuna to be filled by new players with a unique offering (e.g. focus on top-notch executive profiles only) to conquer growing shares and become a go-to solution for every organization in need. Our research suggests that the global freelance platforms market size reached a value of $2.35 billion and is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 15.3% until 2025.

  • What is your competitive advantage?

    Our solution seeks to appeal to executives who are desirous of having additional business opportunities and leveraging on their expertise, as well as to companies, irrespective of their size and industry who are looking for executive talent to take their business to the next level. What makes our solution unique is that it is the first freelance platform to offer comprehensive virtual background checks on every virtual executive admitted, which will allow us to ensure a portfolio consisting of the highest qualified business executives.

  • What will you do with $10,000?

    With $10,000 of funding we can finance our first month of commercial operations, including cost of platform development, and marketing expenses for customers and executive acquisition.
