Veronica French
'Activated Scale connects me with startups building incredible products that are in need of specific expertise but without having to hire an FTE. It's rewarding to get to work with founders and their teams to help grow their business and provide them the specialized guidance that they currently lack. I recommend Activated Scale for any subject matter expert in Sales and Marketing seeking to impact business decisions and outcomes for early stage and high growth startups.'

Veronica French

Montrell Cartwright
'Activated Scale is the premier platform for tech sales experts to help startup founders solve problems and drive revenue. I have consulted for a few startups through Activated Scale and it was always a pleasure connecting founders with net new businesses within industries I'm passionate about. Activated Scale is leading the way for creating a new source of income for sales experts while helping startup founders grow their business.'

Jackson Jefferies | Account Executive
'Traditional accelerators in compensation plans do not deliver enough ROI to work overtime because your OTE to ACV ratio becomes wider the further you exceed your quota. Fractional sales allows me to maximize my time for the highest ROI possible.'

Zack Brown | CRO
'You only get about 10 swings of the bat in your working life, so you better make each company you work for count. Engaging with businesses through Activated Scale gave me the opportunity to work with several startups and identify "the one" that was a great mutual hit'

Allen Liao | Account Executive
'Activated Scale connected me to a startup that I am really enjoying working with so far. The product is a real, must-have in the marketplace, and the founders were a pleasure to work with so far. Activated Scale's platform was easy to use, and I have not experienced any issues with its process either. Highly recommend anyone in sales to give it a try if your situation allows; the experience had been very refreshing, to say the least.'

Frequently asked questions

Empower your career and help startups grow fast!

Who are your customers?
Arrow Down

We work with exceptional founders that are reimagining the world we live in! They range from bootstrapped founders, startups that are venture backed to startups graduating from the world's top startup accelerators such as Y Combinator and Techstars.

We are backed by Techstars as well!

How can I join your network?
Arrow Down

Every applicant must go through a vetting process prior to getting access to opportunities.

We are fortunate to get hundreds of applications from salespeople each month. Every application is reviewed for past experience with a specific buyer, industry and ACV.

The most important piece in sales is the ability to pitch. Each applicant reviews a proprietary case study and sends us a 60-90 second pitch video. Every pitch video is reviewed by peers in the network.

After passing this pitch stage, each applicant does a video interview with a subject matter expert to vet their past successes, communication skills, subject matter expertise and professionalism.

Only applicants that pass all parts of the process are accepted into the network.

How much can I earn?
Arrow Down

Our sales talent has earned as high as $70,000 per year working part-time sales gigs! Monthly retainers range between $2,000 to $8,000 depending on the work required.

They range from $2,000 to $3,500 if you are prospecting for a customer. If you are managing the full sales cycle they range between $2,500 to $5,000.

Let's not forget why we are in sales in the first place. Every customer also offers commissions on top of the monthly retainer!

How do I receive payments?
Arrow Down

We set you up on our payment system, once you are working with one of our customers. We pay bi-weekly.

Can I join your customers full-time?
Arrow Down

Absolutely! 40% of our customers hire our sales talent after an initial contract. It's a great way for you to 'try' your future employer prior to committing to them!
