A LITTLE BIT ABOUT US

We build board and leadership teams for the world’s most exciting new SaaS companies.

Our vision is to build the best SaaS teams in Europe – enabling our portfolio of founders, CEOs and Venture Partners to rapidly exploit their time and opportunities. We do this by dedicating all of our resources into a very unique niche of venture backed SaaS startups, from Seed to Series C. Imagine a search firm whose only purpose in life is to enable your business to attract, hire and retain the best talent you, your budgets and strategies can command with the sole purpose of accelerating your growth and investment potential Round to Round. That’s Kommol – we love the challenge of getting amazing people to invest their careers in early stage SaaS companies. Just ask our eco-system.

It is our dedicated focus into this unique niche which has allowed us to build the most comprehensive network of cloud candidates, why we are extensively used by the leading venture firms in Seed to B Round investing and why the CEOs and Founders we work with grow so much value Round to Round – it’s a people driven economy and we know how to find and hire these very unique people. No distractions outside the space or with companies too big.

So, if you are a SaaS Founder, CEO or Venture Partner and you want a team dedicated to your success then come and meet us, meet our eco-system at one of our events or just check us out.

Clearly this was a massive team effort but it was an incredible result and his experience of going through the process we find is seriously valuable to our network.

It’s this scarcity value for top scaling start ups which is driving the US money
