I've been tasked with finding a CFO/COO for our startup healthcare company. I don't know anyone in my personal network that could be helpful or a fit. How do you recommend finding an executive for a start up?

Generally you could lean into the network of the investors/advisors if that is a possibility (at least for an interim). Beyond that an executive search firm who aren’t strangers to the startup world would probably make this the easiest for you.

I’d agree with going with a search firm. I can recommend one if you want.

I’m a Recruiter for a retained executive search firm that focuses on C-suite positions. Happy to connect and assist.

Go with an executive search firm. There’s plenty out there, big and small. I work in executive search myself, and would recommend a SHREK firm (Spencer Stuart, Heidrick, Russell, Egon and KornFerry).

I’m a consultant at Russell Reynolds. Happy to help you think through the executive search process.

A search firm can be good partner to have. What’s your interview process like? Feel free to DM me for some ideas and insight.

The other fishes are right. It's best to speak to an expert. My firm specialises in Healthcare & Life Sciences search and we have an extensive network. Happy to have a non committal conversation about your options. Please DM me direct.

Tmcgrew@kavaliro.com Reach out to him. His name is Travis. He can help ya and his firm is a female-minority owned. They’re great and he’s smashing and well-experienced.

I work on similar cases in Northern Europe. This might be all familiar but I'd start with -what the role is, what to make happen in the first 3m and within the first 1y -what background is useful in this role? Perhaps, versatile experience in operations and finance lead or consulting I take, and in small enough companies i.e.one is not afraid to put the kettle on etc hands-on attitude. -pay levels, what is it like and how it compares to the job market, what type of stake and runway? Based on this you have a fair picture emerging. Executive Search companies charge different sums, don't take the first offer but give a quick call to a few to make sure you don't pay a double for a similar service (unless you know you get premium help). Best of luck, you'll do well.
