Opportunity Network is a digital network that exists to provide equal growth business opportunities to every CEO. Our 32,000+ members are C-Level decision makers pre-screened by financial institutions (including UBS, ABN Amro and Visa).
Before Opportunity Network existed, decision-makers spent a lot of time finding, screening, and connecting to growth or investment opportunities, often wasting their time or risking frauds.
Since its inception, the platform has been growing its member-base 70% YoY (2014-2019) and aims to be the fastest, cheapest and most reliable way for CEOs to connect with their business counterparts.
Its algorithm matches CEOs to other decision-makers with their shared business needs around any B2B need transaction above $50k, including:
- Raise & Invest capital
- Buy & sell products and services
- M&A or real estate
The potential transactions for a single B2B and M&A deal ranges between 50k-500M, bigger than the retail and wholesale markets.
Today 86% of deals find at least 1 counterparts in 48hs. Our goal is to reach full scale by the end of 2020 (50k members) where we plan to be able to find 10 counterparts for 95% of deals in 1h.
Opportunity Network has been featured in Forbes, CNBC, Financial Times, The Economist. Its CEO has been a speaker at WEF in the past 4 editions (2016-2020) as well as at the MWC (2017).
Founded in 2014 by CEO and former BCGer Brian Pallas, Opportunity Network began as a newsletter at Columbia Business School, where Pallas saw the potential in anonymously connecting the Family Business Club members.
