We’re seeking entrepreneurial business leaders to join our next cohort of small business Presidents.
What is Teamshares?
Teamshares is on a mission to create $10 billion of new wealth for lower income Americans through employee ownership. You can think of us as a hybrid of a software company, an education company, an investment company, and a support network.
We purchase successful small businesses that fit our guidelines and work with employee owners to place a new President who will lead company strategy, operations, culture, and growth. Teamshares network companies generally range in size from $2M-$10M in revenue and have 7-150+ employee owners.
Teamshares is a Series C funded company backed by QED Investors, Spark Capital, Khosla Ventures, Collaborative Fund, Inspired Capital, Slow Ventures and Union Square Ventures, among others. To date, our 100+ team has placed, trained, and supported over 40 small business Presidents.
What You Will Do:
Replace the previous retiring small business owner as the new President of the company
Own all business strategy, operations, and P&L management, leading an experienced team of existing employees who, alongside you, will own equity in the business
Work with the bookkeeper/controller to make decisions about ongoing expenses and capital purchases, gaining efficiencies, and developing business metrics
Collaborate with the business development / sales team to drive growth through marketing, outreach, and new product developments
Handle all HR matters, including employee performance, job reviews, raises, and bonuses
