Maximizing Speed Of Healthy Growth When Launching A Tested and Developed Service In Known Market

Hello Everyone,

I have spent 3 years servicing a niche market during which time I was research and developing a solution that is 5X faster than traditional methods, and reverse engineered the service to make use of Artificial Intelligence when I had grew to the point of affording it.

Now I am close to the point of launching the service, however I fully intend on moving well beyond the initial niche market once my staff are trained in the new technology. I can make money within the first 3 months since I have a prior client base of over a 100 companies that are now familiar with my capabilities and proven track record of ROI.

The service is B2B and, indefinitely scale-able across industries and borders, so upon launch I want to have someone or people on my team who can help facilitate healthy rapid expansion.

What I am looking For: 
  1. Advisor & Investor, who has experience with at least 2 B2B startups in one of the following arenas; SAAS, AI &/or Machine Learning.
  2. High profile experience in one of the following; Recruiting Industry, Automotive Industry, SAAS, AI, &/or Machine Learning

Greg McClement,

Thank you for the feedback. I have narrowed down what I am looking for.

Thank you Yohan.

I am planning on partnering with related software technologies servicing the industry and offering them affiliate marketing dollars. However licencing the solution full out is not an option, for it will cross verticals they do not service.

As for finding an advisor, do they usually want shares in exchange for the advising?

I have personally always advised on a volunteer basis and all my advisors have been within my personal network.

Christopher,

You mentioned that you need "hands on, sweat equity with finance backing" ?

Does this mean that you are looking for an investor who would also work at your company?  I am not sure what you are looking for.  In any event, I think you will have greater success if you can articulate more clearly your specific requirement(s).

Depends on your offering but I would recommend either finding a veteran at a large distributor willing to become your advisor and help you build a team, or to partner with such a distributer and license your solution to them
