Success Story: MDB Capital Group

chrisMDBMDB Capital Group, LLC, a VC firm based in Dallas and Santa Monica, was the first company to conduct a search for a senior level hire through crowdsourcing on the Zintro platform. Instead of hiring a recruitment firm, MDB offered $20K to any Zintro member that referred a successful CEO candidate with experience in mobile devices or consumer electronics for their Austin-based portfolio company.

The crowdsourced recruiting method was a strong success. A total of 128 referrals were received and a candidate was hired. Chris Marlett, CEO of MDB Capital Group, was thrilled with the results of the Zintro bounty inquiry. He commented, “It was one of the best hires we have ever made.”

As a result of the search, Zintro member Dan Mullaney received a check from MDB for $24,000. Since that time, MDB submitted a second bounty inquiry for another senior executive search, this time in the medical devices space. MDB Capital Group is Wall Street’s only IP-driven public venture bank, with over 15 years of experience launching disruptive technologies into the public markets.
