Frequently asked questions

What clients usually engage your Start-up Consulting Consultants?

We work with clients from all over the world. Our clients range from enterprise and corporate clients to companies that are backed by Private Equity or Venture Capital funds. Furthermore, we work directly with Family Offices, Private Equity firms, and Asset Managers. Most of our enterprise clients have dedicated Corporate Development, M&A, and Strategy divisions which are utilizing our pool of Start-up Consulting talent to add on-demand and flexible resources, expertise, or staff to their in-house team.

How is Fintalent different?

Fintalent is not a staffing agency. We are a community of best-in-class Start-up Consulting professionals, highly specialized within their domains. We have streamlined the process of engaging the best Start-up Consulting talent and are able to provide clients with Start-up Consulting professionals within 48 hours of first engaging them. We believe that our platform provides more value for Corporates, Ventures, Private Equity and Venture Capital firms, and Family Offices.

Our Hiring Process – What do ‘Community-Approach’ and ‘Invite-to-Apply’ mean?

‘Invite-to-Apply’ is the process by which we shortlist candidates for the majority of projects on our platform. Often, due to the confidential nature of our clients’ projects, we do not release projects to our whole platform but using the matching technology and expertise of our internal team we select candidates who are the best fit for our clients’ needs. This approach also ensures engagement with our community of professionals on the Fintalent platform, and is a benefit both to our clients and independent professionals, as our freelancers have direct access to the roles best suited to their skills and are more likely to take an interest in a project if they have been sought out directly. In addition, if a member of our community is unavailable for a project but knows someone whose skill set perfectly fits the brief, they are able to invite them to apply for the role, utilizing the personal networks of each talent on our platform.

Which skills and expertise do your Fintalents have?

The Fintalents are hand-picked and vetted Start-up Consulting professionals, speak over 55 languages, and have professional experience in all geographical markets. Our Start-up Consulting consultants’ experience ranges from 3+ years as analysts at top investment banks and Strategy consultancies, to later career C-level executives. The average working experience is 6.9 years and 80% of all Fintalents range from 3-12 years into their careers.

Our Start-up Consulting consultants have experience in leading firms as well as interfacing with clients and wider corporate structures and management. What makes our Start-up Consulting talent pool stand out is the fact that they have technical backgrounds in over 2,900 industries.

How does the screening and onboarding of your Start-up Consulting talent work?

Fintalent.io is an invite-only platform and we believe in the power of referrals and a closed-loop community. Members of our community are able to invite a small number of professionals onto the platform. In addition, our team actively scouts for the best talent who have experience in investment banking or have worked at a global top management consultancy. All of our community-referred talent and scouted talent are subject to a rigorous screening process. As such, over the last 18 months totaling more than 750 hours of onboarding calls, of which only 40% have received an invite-link after the call.

What happens if I am not satisfied with my Start-up Consulting consultant’s work?

During your initial engagement with a member of our Fintalent talent pool with no risk. If you are not satisfied with the quality of your hire for any reason then we are able to find a replacement at short notice. There is no minimum commitment per project, but generally projects last at least 5 days and can last 12+ months.

We are a community-based M&A staffing platform.

With our platform, you can fill full-time M&A roles, or staff your team with a Start-up Consulting expert when you need an extra hand.

Everything you need to know about Start-up Consulting

A constant struggle for start-ups is how to grow. Sometimes your product or service, no matter how innovative it may seem, just doesn’t resonate with the target demographic. Other times there are external factors which are out of your control that can impact your company’s success. That’s where a start-up consultant can come in handy! Below are some ways that a consultant might be able to help you take your business to the next level.

How Fintalent’s Start-Up Consultant Can Help Your Organisation

You’re a new entrepreneur and your business is brand new. Your product or service is different from everything else that has ever been on the market. You think that you have a great idea that nobody else is doing, but then you see your competition in action. How do you catch up to them? That’s when Fintalent’s Start-up consultant can come in handy! The best way to tell which Fintalent Start Up Experts are good is to look at their background. Fintalent’s Start Up Consultants possess technical university degrees in their fields of expertise, have worked in an industry with similar products or services, and have good and expert idea of what an ideal customer would want from a business. Fintalent Start Up Consultants know the most about the market and what it takes to build a successful company in that specific field. They also to know whether or not a start up firm is doing it right or not.

Choosing between start-up consulting firms is another important part of the process. Business managers are advised to use the internet to research their past projects and records of success which most Fintalent Consultants possess in abundance. Fintalent’s Start Up Experts that you choose to engage, should be able to explain how they were able to make their clients successful. Managers should ask about their actual work; what kind of tasks did they help them with? Do not be afraid to ask questions about anything that makes you feel uncomfortable about their services. This can save you a lot of time and energy later on.
