ABOUT BSG TEAM VENTURES:
BSG believes that great businesses are run on people. Talent is the lifeblood of business. And almost all of BSG’s clients have a business context that requires what BSG calls the “builder-leader” profile.
BSG does business. BSG knows business, not just headhunting. BSG believes that to do really effective search, you need to get business and headhunting. This isn’t just generic business that many search industry generalists espouse. Rather, it’s industry specific knowledge—of vertical industry sectors like SaaS software, the for-profit education industry sector, healthcare technology, business process-outsourcing sector, and the manufacturing and retail sectors. These are just some of the industry verticals in which BSG claims deep contextual business knowledge.
BSG does relationships. Rather than one search wonders that can feel more like a hit-and-run, BSG wants to be a trusted talent advisor and not an occasional supplier. And through these relationships BSG builds a deep understanding of what success looks like in your business, and which candidates both will and will not be accretive to your business and its goals.
