CEO – Consumer Products – Startup (9012K)

Location: San Francisco Bay area – local candidates only will be considered

Our client has developed an array of products that are ready to be licensed to manufacturers as well as sold directly to consumers by the licensor. These products are targeted at the largest age group in the country, those over 40, to improve their heath and longevity. Eight of these products are in the prototype stage, several with a company looking to license them for wide retail distribution under a white label name. Additionally, products will be sold directly via ourclient’s e-commerce sites to consumers. The founder is a highly creative and prolific inventor, who wants to bring a seasoned CEO of startups on board to lead the charge.

As CEO (Chief Executive Officer), you will wear several hats: operations, fundraising/investor relationships, and licensing agreement management. You will bring a passion for startups, with experience in fundraising, operations, product licensing, and consumer goods/products. A background in marketing/social media/e-commerce/infomercials would be a plus.

You will be able to work for equity only for up to three months while securing additional funding.

Also, you will have experience building companies from ground up (startups), taking the business through its liquidity event, excellent investor presentation skills and a well-rounded background in business knowledge. Experience in taking products through the manufacturing process is a plus.

The ideal candidate will have a sense of humor, low ego, be collaborative, yet able to make decisions when needed, and have strong leadership skills. A passion for science and helping improve the health and wellness of others is a plus.
