Equitylancer uses business networking to unite a global entrepreneurial community focused on the use of equity as a currency. Equitylancer facilitates employment by startups offering an equity component in jobs, projects, board and advisory roles; soon will include others willing to trade in equity to grow a business or career such as investors and companies seeking to exchange products and services for equity. We provide a unique one-stop resource for equity-based human and financial capital solutions, products and services. Members offer their shared intelligence regarding equity compensation and real world startup issues.
It is rare in a person’s career when they get to join a team that’s not just providing another solution to a problem that already exists, but is creating an entirely new marketplace. Given today’s tight capital markets and high unemployment, we believe the time is ripe for founders of early stage companies to leverage the equity in their young firms to attract the best entrepreneurial minded talent who want to own their future and not just collect a paycheck. We also believe today’s workforce is changing with more people seeking independent contractor opportunities who are seeking to provide services in exchange for payment in some form of equity versus cash. We only seek motivated individuals to join our team that believe in the equity compensation model and will become tireless advocates advancing our message to our community consisting of founders, owners, employees, consultants, advisors, recruiters and investors.
