Have possible exits as a Chief of Staff at a SaaS startup (20M in funding) and as a Strategy Manager at a well known D2C company. Both pay ~125K, though the startup is remote and D2C is in NYC. Love the creative / fun culture of the D2C, and scared if I’ll measure up to the CEO’s expectations at the startup. I do wonder if the CoS position will demonstrate more growth. Thoughts?

A big piece is also the equity component? Any clue what that would be for CoS for I assume a series A? And also how would that compare to the D2C which I assume is later stage? Try to get explicit about what exactly CoS would entail and what the growth trajectory would look like. Also, give some thought into if you want to do D2C or B2B - very different business models

Thanks - what differences are there in D2C vs B2B from an employee perspective? Not sure what I should be aware of. Waiting on equity

If you do a good job, the startup is successful and there is a liquidity event, that will be better for your career and especially net worth vs d2c. How much confidence do you have in the startup?

The question here is d2c vs SaaS, first. Then more details on the day to day of the CoS role, second. Industry choice leads to different career options and companies down the road
