Leadership and board roles are mission-critical to the success of any business yet are the hardest roles to fill, especially in dynamic startups and scaleups. More and more companies are using on-demand talent to fill these specialized executive roles and level-up their existing teams.

Our services engage our communities of executives, give executives the tools they need to manage their business or consulting practice, help CEOs understand the scalability of their executive teams and boards, and enable investors to seamlessly connect their networks to their portfolio companies.
“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
“Bolster addresses the entire spectrum of building an amazing team by starting with those who could be part-time advisors and mentors in a manner that enables both parties to get to know each other. In addition, Bolster’s other services that support a CEO go way beyond transactional value and into long-lasting, company-lasting value.”

“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.”
