Of the thousands of reps we source each month, Lions are those scoring in the Top 25% across our four criteria: Loyalty, Performance, Pedigree and Talent.
In 2009, our founder Matt was head of sales at a prominent $30M-backed startup, under pressure to double his team. Using recruiters and job boards proved a time suck. Recalling his own frustration in finding growth jobs early in his career, he was shocked that no one focused on helping the best companies hire young sales performers. Soon after, TheLions was born.
To date, TheLions has connected 1,000s of sales Lions with 100s of startups with over $2B in VC from blue-chip investors such as Google Ventures and Andreesen Horowitz. Our own investors are seasoned C-level executives spanning both Wall Street and Silicon Valley.
