1. We are a team-based social recruitment and collaboration platform for freelancers, project leaders and employers in the fast-evolving world of work. Our mission is to become a leading online talent acquisition and management platform - and the leading platform worldwide for sourcing or joining dynamic, flexible project teams, no matter how “commercial” or “social” those projects are. We're a prefunded start-up (with a campaign now running on Crowdcube) but we already have a live prototype that's in active use and that we're consistently developing. The current team consists of a CEO/Head of Product, CTO/Lead Developer and a Community Development Director. We're seeking a Chair who would also be responsible for developing investor relations and a part-time FD who would also be responsible for looking after corporate governance issues (or one person to fulfil both roles). Remuneration would be on a sweat equity and/or results basis at this stage. If you're interested in working with us but have something different to offer than the requirements given above, still please feel free to talk to us!
2. We have built an event information and promotion platform that harnesses end user existing calendar apps. We are now targeting museums, societies, charities, and sports clubs who want to increase tickets sales and/or attendance with better interaction with their target supporters/ users/ friends and customers. We are looking for business development people to join our team to achieve introductions to sports agencies, ticketing agencies, theatre groups and associations with large memberships. The Women’s Institute, the Royal Yachting Association, the National Trust and Sport England are all great examples of partners we would like to work with.
3. We enable teams to collaborate effectively on their written content, ensuring quality and accountability via our easy-to-use, powerful web platform. Our model is B2B SaaS, focused initially on the book-publishing industry but with opportunities to expand into other exciting areas. Our platform is in private beta with several companies, and we have our commercial launch in October. We are looking for someone to help the executive team to develop and drive our sales and customer-relationship strategy.
4. We are the largest mobile wood fired pizza company in theUKbased in Oxfordshire. We currently operate from three units but are looking to expand to fifty. We are looking for a strategist to come on board and take the business to the next level, to expand the company and help raise finance in the future.
Please join us for the RELAUNCH of Pitching for Management™ on 1st July 2014 at 6.00pm - 9.30pm at the offices of Critchleys in Oxford.
In a new move to increase the focus on the importance of teams in ambitious businesses, come and debate with VCs and business angels about what makes a management team investable.
We will also have four companies telling you about their big management challenges and asking for your help in solving them.
If you can solve one or more of the challenges you will be rewarded with the opportunity to join the company and take it forwards. You may be paid a remuneration package based on salary and perks and for the lucky few you will be awarded a stake in the company in return for your efforts.
If you want to make a big change in your life to a better way of working - this is the event for you.
