“We knew we didn't have a full-time need for a General Counsel, but we wanted someone extraordinary who would also fit with our unique culture and diverse stakeholder population. Bolster listened to our needs, was able to quickly source several strong candidates, and we found an excellent match almost right away. We look forward to working with them again.”
“As a young company, we needed to find the right fit for a fractional executive role and to find it quickly. Bolster helped us do that quickly and cost-effectively, without any additional overhead.”
CEO, Meet Cute
“Working with Bolster was a game changer. Their rigorous framework for considering functional, leadership and values skills resonated with how we think about people development. Bolster’s unique access to such a curated group of experienced executives is perfect to help fill out teams and boards.”
"We were searching for a full-time General Counsel, and Bolster connected us with qualified candidates we would not have otherwise had access to. We hired a fantastic GC with the skills and background we needed, and the position was a natural next step in her career, so it was a perfect fit. The Bolster team was fast, the candidates were high quality, and we spent significantly less than we would with a traditional executive search firm."
“Working with Bolster has been the perfect way to showcase my work and introduce me to new potential clients. Their process facilitated an introduction with a client that was a great match for both my skills and competencies, as well as the client's needs. Finding fractional work that is a good fit for both parties can be time consuming and challenging, but Bolster’s process is efficient and thorough. I look forward to continuing to leverage the Bolster marketplace.”
CEO and Co-founder, GrowthTera | Fractional CRO
“After 22 years in the marketing and partnerships industry, I was eager to work differently. My hope was to use my broad base of experience without being tied-down to “just” one thing. Within a matter of weeks, Bolster facilitated a match and gave me the chance to serve as a fractional marketing leader, allowing me to leverage my expertise in a tangible way while retaining the freedom and time to work on multiple projects. I believe this way of working will only become more and more attractive to other executives like me.”

Founder & CEO, Inmomentum | Executive Coach
“Working with Bolster has helped me significantly accelerate our leadership development efforts at Quizlet. Bolster brings the power of a high quality talent marketplace combined with decades of collective wisdom and experience from Matt and his team on scaling an executive team and utilizing the board of directors into an easy to use and simple approach.”
“As an early-stage startup, it can be challenging to find the right support when building a team. Bolster met us where we’re at and has exceeded all expectations. They provided us highly qualified candidates for our executive coaching needs and were very responsive in helping us as we worked through the selection process. I look forward to working with them in the future as we fill fractional executive roles and build out our board. Bolster is a class act and I won’t hesitate to recommend them to anyone looking to build their team.”
"Bolster gave me a unique insight not just into the abilities of my executive team as individuals, but our ability as a collective team. On top of this, the process didn't just give me clarity based on past performance, but based on future needs for a fast scaling and in a dynamic industry."
"One of the best pieces of advice I've received as a first time CEO/founder is to seek smart money - since money is, at the end of the day, a commodity, it's important to raise capital from those that believe in the business, the impact it can make and you personally as well as being committed to take actionable steps to help the company grow as rapidly as possible. It was clear from the start this is how the Bolster team operates."
