SAN FRANCISCO, Feb. 2, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Bad Ass Advisors is aligning with some of the nation's best accelerators and incubators to surface advising roles for their members as increasingly today's greatest new companies are starting there. And while being part of an accelerator or founder network can bring tremendous value to new start ups often the skills that their founders need fall out of the scope of accelerator's internal mentor network.
"We've learned that strong advisors are crucial in helping K50 companies grow faster. We're excited to scale this with Bad Ass Advisors," says Alex Fiance, CEO of Kairos Society, a global community that connects the top young entrepreneurs to strategic partners and investors.
Michael Cardamone, Managing Director of Acceleprise adds "we are excited to partner with Bad Ass Advisors to help extend the network of great people our companies are able to connect with". This new partnership with Bad Ass Advisors means these startups can tap into a far larger network of experienced advisors to help them raise money and/or grow their businesses.
The companies that are involved with these great organizations will be invited to work closely with Bad Ass Advisors to specify exactly what type of advisor they need at that moment. Bad Ass Advisors will then match them with an advisor, that will help them with whatever they need - sales, business development, fundraising etc. Bad Ass Advisors, as always, provides this free service for free to all parties but advisors get compensated with equity in the early stage company.
"So far we've made about 50 matches that have resulted in an advisor agreement being signed. For example, we connected Nova.ai, a sales prospecting startup to Kendall Collins, an ex-Salesforce VP and he has really helped hone their marketing model. As our reach is increasingly wider than what an individual accelerator might have, we can pinpoint the right expert at the right time that can help the company climb that next hill. Accelerators and founders networks are amazing--we simply complement what they do with our network," says CEO of Bad Ass Advisors, Mark H Goldstein.
