Sales makes or breaks a business and it’s easy to make a mistake when hiring for sales talent. With pre-vetted sales talent that has a proven track record, prior experience selling to a similar buyer and ACV, and a flexible model that lets you scale up or scale down, Activated Scale has taken the guesswork out of sales hiring
All our prospective sales talent goes through a 3 step vetting process prior to getting access to opportunities. We vet for communication, prior track record, and most importantly sales chops. Hire a salesperson that can actually sell!
Prior Buyer experience
Access vetted salespeople with experience selling to a similar buyer and a similar ACV. This reduces onboarding and ramp time, the opportunity cost of burnt leads, and your time. Work with sellers that have successfully sold a product with minimal brand recognition and had to work hard to win deals.
No ambiguous or long-term contracts! No minimum spend or minimum duration! Work month to month, scale up or scale down and convert to an employee if you choose to. If we have done our job, you will choose to work with us for a long time.
Your one point of contact will work with you through the entire engagement. They will personally match, help you get set up, and work hand in hand. Get recommendations for everything you need - from the right sales tools, the right metrics for your salespeople, monitoring their success to running a successful one-on-one that drives results. They are your personal sales advisor!
How it works
Our mission is to connect expert marketers with businesses quickly and seamlessly.
Activated Scale is a B2B sales talent network for startups to hire part-time or full-time vetted sales talent.
Connect with Sales leaders that have built from the ground up and spent years building proven sales strategies and processes. They work hand in hand with startups to understand their business model, review data and their challenges. They recommend strategies that change the trajectory of startups.
Connect with vetted, experienced and hungry salespeople that have worked with companies you aspire to beat. Our high performing salespeople work closely with founders to improve messaging, and articulate their value proposition that increases traction and revenue.
Founded by a sales veteran, Prateek Mathur has sold for and built sales teams at startups and public companies. Over the last 20 years, he has intricately seen the pitfalls that startups face when scaling their business and hiring promising sales talent. Prateek is fascinated by the drive of a startup founder and loves their passion, vision, and mission to reimagine our world.
If you aren't satisfied with your salesperson, we can rematch you with someone new from our network at no cost. We vet and stand by our talent but understand that there are rare situations where there is more than skills and experience that make a match successful.
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.
