About Stephanie

Bonmo is a marketplace connecting brands with the best comedic talents for their product/audience fit. We've already built up a database of comedic talents and are planning to accelerate the growth of the database. We also have paying customers and generated $40K in revenue in two months from just two of our paying clients. Our clients consist of YC-backed startups as well as Fortune 500 corporations. Additionally, we are currently supported by the Founder Institute accelerator, one of the top accelerators in NYC. We're moving rapidly, and numbers and response from investors and clients alike paint a very promising future for the startup.

I'm currently looking for a cofounder/partner who has extensive experience in the entertainment industry and comedy space.
The cofounder I'm looking for should have these skill sets:
- extensive experience in the entertainment industry (particularly the comedy space); bonus if you have done comedy work yourself
- experience with or in the advertising/marketing industry
- experience in business development and finding new opportunities to network and find leads
- startup experience and an entrepreneurial spirit
- ability to think outside of the box and adapt quickly when facing new challenges
- growth hacking ability
- copywriting with humor
- has a great balance of being analytical and data-driven and creative and innovative
- is responsive and proactive

If you're interested and would like to chat more, send me a message!
