Why Partner?

After interviewing 50+ hiring managers and recruiters we realized that the world doesn’t need more ‘flavor of the day’ networking & recruiting software - we need more opportunities to meet face-to-face and build real relationships with the top people in our industry. All of the professionals who we spoke with agreed–and we were inspired to created Futurexecs.

  • Go Beyond the Profile:

    Anyone can craft a great resume and game interviews– so why not use your AI (actual intelligence), look beyond the BS & uncover the ‘diamonds in the rough’?’

  • Create Buzz:

    The best way to sell your company and make the possibility of working with you irresistible is face-to- face, not online – right?

  • If you’re like us, your network probably isn’t as good as it should be. If you want to change that - just partner with us.

  • No Agency Fees. Ever. Enough said.
  • Build Trust & Loyalty:

    Become the ‘go- to’ recruiter by discovering exactly who your hiring managers are seeking by evaluating talent in-person, with them.

  • Lure Away The Best:

    Elite recruiters don’t pass up a target rich group so why not warm up some talent with a smile and have a shared experience– while your competition is stuck at home jamming out inMails?

  • No Agency Fees. Ever:

    Forget the absurd fees.


As former military officers, our founders look forward to hosting many diverse professionals at this event. Please note, however, that participation in an Accelerator is solely based on the quality of attendees’ work experience.

By partnering with Futurexecs, you and your company will be supporting a 100% Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned organization.
