At Knowledge Gate we help companies find answers to their most business critical questions by connecting them to industry experts for micro-consultations. This kind of service has been used by Investment Firms and Management Consultancies on a daily basis for over a decade. Our vision is to take the somewhat opaque ‘Expert Network’ service to the life sciences market, which is one of the most knowledge-intense industries in the world.
After a highly successful first year running a mostly manual MVP, product-market fit is not a question of KGG. However, as we look toward our expansion and furthermore our scaling plans, it is very clear that we need to build a software that will make our day-to-day operations a lot faster and optimized in order for us to focus on the strategy for what comes next.
As none of us are able to build something as sophisticated as we would like our software to be, we look to find the right person to lead our technical development. As we are in the beginning of what will be a journey of a lifetime nothing is set in stone yet, which is why it is of paramount importance to us that the right candidate is an entrepreneurial individual who has thorough technical knowledge combined with a strategic mindset.
