Are you working with Tech-HR?
Do you want to be a founding partner of a new company?
Then read on
I am an external senior software consultant. I rent myself out directly or subcontract myself though big consultancies. For the past years I have gained substantial experience in this field, yet I am frustrated about how inefficient this otherwise lucrative market is. There are many established consultancies, but they struggle to innovate and it often feels like they do not see the need to do so. Therefore I am looking for a partner to challenge this industry.
With a strong founding team I am confident that we will be able to position ourselves on the Danish market. However, all consultancies face one systemic problem: scalability. Selling time has natural limitations, thus it is interesting to look at other synergies that might create revenue. I have spent the last few years building a software platform that can be used to gain a competitive advantage and potentially be sold internationally when we have proven its worth. Combining a solid consultancy with this SaaS solution gives us an interesting opportunity in the long run.
I make 7 figures a year as an consultant (dkk). You earn probably something similar. We should be able to bootstrap this company through our current work. I see no problem in renting myself out part time to get the revenue flowing, while at the same time establishing us on the market - I realize that might be a bit harder for you, but maybe you can take over a part of the recruitment work or similar. When starting a company you need to be creative ;)
The short term goal will be on recruiting and get a team together. ABR (Always Be Recruiting) should be the core of our consultancy, as I believe it is much harder to find the right people than it is to find companies that need help. We could also subcontract some of our initial employees until we have enough work ourselves. At the same time we should start to position ourselves on the market. I have a few ideas, but I want you to take ownership of this part of the company.
From there it is really mostly about building a healthy company as described in your startup book of choice. This is of course easier said than done, but if we stick together and execute the mentioned plan we have done everything we can to set the consultancy up for success.
