Venture Capital Executive Search


Companies are built around two primary assets: their people and products. N2Growth specializes in helping young companies attract tier 1 leadership talent through its market-leading executive search practice.

We serve venture capitalists and startup founders. Most venture firms today maintain an internal talent function with talent partners overseeing and helping fill the human capital needs of their portfolio companies. This is a testament to the importance investors place on having the right people in the right jobs within their investments.

Like the investors we partner with, we also know that smart entrepreneurs surround themselves with complementary talent to fill blind spots and perfect their strategies as they build. We are experts at recruiting the best talent in the market. Based on our years of experience, we understand the unique dynamics that exist within organizations and offer our expert advice on talent strategy for entrepreneurs and investors alike. N2Growth then facilitates alignment with stakeholders and carries out the client’s talent strategy with precision and discipline.

There is a direct correlation between the quality of a company’s people and the value that collective talent creates. We measure value creation in young companies as, among other things, the measurable impact they have on top-line growth, product innovation, customer satisfaction, and the overall culture of the company and workplace environment. In a small company, every role is critical and we find leaders who will make a lasting impact and change the trajectory of your organization. Role specialties include:

Chief Customer Officer
Chief Revenue Officer
Chief Technology Officer
