For unfunded or under-funded startups, we recruit talent for sweat equity or other arrangements. For startups looking to raise money, we usually recruit for Chief Investment Officers, Board Members and Investment Banking Specialists that personally know investors or are experts at raising money. These roles can be part-time with creative incentives to help with key introductions and pathways to funding.
For funded startups, we recruit who you need to scale. We help you accelerate your business. The difference between us and other recruiting solutions is that our founder has a portfolio of startup successes, and a long history of starting and selling companies. He founded this company to provide a unique service to startups and early stage companies that he could not find anywhere else. Mark November is not only the founder, he also brings to each client a unique understanding of the clients challenges because he has been in the same shoes as our clients.
Our founder, Mark November, attributes his multiple successes starting companies to recruiting the right people with the necessary background, skill sets, and connections. These experiences inspired Mark to form November International Corporation dedicated to helping early stage companies, inventors, and startups find the talent needed to join the founding team.
We help already funded companies, and ones who still need a pathway to funding.
The talent we find includes Co-Founders, Chief Executive Officers, Chief Investment Officers, Board Member - Investors, Investment Banking Specialists, Chief Financial Officers, Chief Operating Officers, Presidents, Partners, Chief Technology Officers, and many more.
We build teams for startups and early stage companies with titles that attract talented people who want to join a startup part-time or full-time, often for equity earned or performance based compensation.
We routinely find that within one week of advertising our client to our network, we can attract 100-600 people. From these large numbers we frequently find 5-25 outstanding candidates. It's fast, yet does require the startup to arrange to interview the best of the candidate pool. And the interview process usually takes longer than the campaign. But in one week, we can attract enough top talent that there are many pathways to explore with people who will want to take your calls or get on a zoom with you.
If you are feeling stuck or not growing fast enough, this is your solution.

Recruiting for startups is a specialization. This is not the same as recruiting for larger established companies.
We start with a free call to get to know you and your business. We find that almost every business challenge can be solved by recruiting someone to help who's either the person needed, or personally knows the right person. For example, startups and early stage companies need people who know investors. They often find that pitching total strangers rarely works in a timely manner. Or there might be a need for someone with expertise in a sector they're currently lacking, i.e. Management, Licensing, Engineering, Patents, Prototypes, IT, Product Development, Sales, Marketing, Legal. There are many other reasons why startups recruit who they need to avoid or get out of being stuck.
So after the free call, and assuming we both want to proceed on a plan discussed during the appointment, we typically run paid ads targeting our network to find the relevant candidates. We know how to attract the people our clients need to get them unstuck even if the startup is unfunded, has no money for salaries, or needs full/part time help. We generally are able to find multiple people who can accomplish what is needed to get the startup moving in the right direction.
We run paid ad campaigns with a goal of attracting a large pool of talent usually within 1 week. We do this with multiple ads in multiple markets. We generally advertise in North America but have done many campaigns worldwide.
The reason we have been successful and many companies have used us is that we attract 100-600 people in a week knowing we only need to find 1-5 who meet our needs. So this is a numbers-game in the sense that we start with a large pool to find the 1-in-100 who fit our clients needs.
But here is the important thing to understand. We hand over all the candidate information with links to their LinkedIn profile and resumes or CV's if they've sent it to us (90% will send their resume) and you get to decide who you want to interview. Many of the candidates will send us a cover letter or email explaining why they are a good fit for you. We send all of this to you.
The reason we have so many happy clients is that our solution is fast. Within 10 days, you are able to schedule interviews and explore options with amazingly talented people. This is the fastest most proactive way to engage in conversations with the talented people who think they can solve your challenge(s).
Instead of chasing strangers, this method has hundreds of people chasing you. Then you decide how many you want to be introduced to. You can reach out directly or have us make the introduction.
We use various titles to attract the right people. That said, you do not have to offer any of them that specific title. For example, a candidate for Chief Investment Officer who knows how to raise money from investors might be better suited as a Board member, or consultant. A candidate for CEO might best be a Business Partner. The whole idea is to connect the people who have the right skills, the right background, and the right connections to you.
Getting a large pool of candidates works. It took us over a year to figure out how to do it. But now we can attract 100-600 applicants within a week for the 1-in-100 that is the right fit. Our method usually works well for our clients and allows them to get back on the right track quickly.

We typically don't help local businesses, i.e. small restaurants. We work best with companies who are focused nationwide or worldwide.
