About Florence

I am looking for a partner to work with me on my startup. If all works well, this person would become the co-founder.

My startup helps working professionals find the most efficient way to advance or pivot their career. It is an online platform that uses machine learning and market data to identify strengths and gaps in our users' educational and professional background, and provide actionable insights and a personalized roadmap to help them achieve their career goals.

I have launched the MVP late last year (2017), and gotten encouraging signals from early users. I am now looking for someone who could help with strategizing and executing on sales and business dev, so I could focus on building out and improving the product.

The ideal co-founder is someone who has experience in B2B sales, can sell ice to eskimos, a super-connector, a social butterfly, and at the same time carry a professional and credible presence. Located in the Bay Area CA is a must.

A big plus if you are also familiar with marketing, and can work together on marketing aspect of the startup too.

If you are as passionate as I am on helping people get unstuck in their career development, send me a message and let's meet!
