Build out ambassador programs in major cities US cities for more events and networking.
Investing in HireClub represents a unique opportunity for the community to own itself. We want to democratizing hiring with the very people who have made the community so valuable in the first place.
I started HireClub as a side project over 6 years ago in 2011. I wanted to hire skilled professionals quickly and I knew many of my friends had the same need. Referrals are how business gets done.
Since then, HireClub has grown and I wake up every morning at 5am to wonderful messages how we are able to help people find their dream jobs and connect to our community.
The internet can be a scary place but on HireClub we see strangers helping each other and paying it forward. People are respectful, kind and most of all professionally engaged to help each other succeed.
As an immigrant and minority, I’ve personally seen many times how good talent can be overlooked when it looks different from what people are used to.
Everyone deserves to find their dream job. Your skills and hard work determine your value, not just who you know or where you went to school.
HireClub gives people access to jobs they might not have access to. We make hiring a conversation, not a lonely job post and we welcome everyone regardless of race, gender, orientation, religion, pedigree, education or location.
We’ve doubled in size this year alone and that’s still only with me and the team working 1 day a week on HireClub. Imagine how many more people we could help working on HireClub full time!
With your investment, our team can dedicate themselves to helping everyone find their dream job, we can build out the features and community with feedback from you. From day one, HireClub has always been about what we make it together.
With equity crowdfunding, everyday people like you and me can build companies that we believe in. Not just ones that cater to specific people, but ones that are community oriented and welcome all. Your investment helps HireClub achieve it’s purpose in helping you and your friends find jobs.
You can invest as little as $25, we always want HireClub to be accessible to everyone, regardless of income. If every single member out of 19,000 invested $25, we’d have $475,000 in a heartbeat.
Imagine a community that decides its future by investing together. Imagine a community that helps friends find work and companies find skilled talent all while paying a livable wage for those people.
Your investment in HireClub makes that dream come true. Thank you HireClub for the opportunity to serve you!
With all my heart,
The smallest investment amount that HireClub is accepting.
HireClub needs to reach their minimum funding goal before

We recently formed our Delaware corporation and are in the process of hiring our team full time, but as of the filing date, they are not employees by the legal definition. Additionally, our founders do not count as employees for the purposes of this disclosure. When we have final employment agreements, we will update this page with the news.
We will use the funds to hire our team full time and build out our website and community.
Each $75,000 of our pre-seed round will help us hire an additional team member.
HireClub is a website and community where we help friends find jobs through referrals.
Anyone can post a job for free and friends refer each other by tagging and vouching for them.
We started this with 25 of my friends, and now it's going to 14,000 people around the world, helping each other find jobs. With companies like Facebook, Apple, Google, Netflix and more, all posting jobs. We think this could be a huge platform to help anyone find a job.
I've been working on this as a side project for the last six years, spending the last six month to growth. And the community has grown so much, it's compelling me to work on this full time. So we're raising $250,000 to make this a full time effort for me and my team to help anyone find their next job.
We've created a platform where we can scale that trust. Let me tell you how it works. Anyone can post a job on HireClub. And then you can recommend your friends. And instead of it being a cold job ad, it's a conversation. You can talk to the hiring manager. Business happens faster, hiring happens faster. The average time to hire on HireClub is measured in days, not weeks or months like other platforms.
What started out as 25 of my friends, is now 14,000 people around the world, finding jobs at companies like Facebook, Apple, Google and more. And we're growing with 1,000 member a month. We think this platform can scale around the world to help anyone find their next job.
I've been doing HireClub as a side project for the last six years, but it's become clear in the last six months how much growth and potential it has. It could be one of the biggest platforms for hiring.
We're raising $250,000 to take the team full time, to help anyone find their next job. Thank you.
Bill Draper: What does the $250,000 buy?
Ketan Anjaria: It buys two salaries in San Francisco, plus enough money to sponsor our events and marketing that we have to do to spread the word about HireClub.
Bill Draper: In exchange for $250,000 what do I get, if I put it all in?
Ketan Anjaria: All we're doing is convertible notes right now.
Bill Draper: In what way?
Ketan Anjaria: It's a $4 million evaluation with a 20% discount.
Tim Draper: And you said you were going to have to ... it's going to hire two people. Who are those two people and what are they going to be doing?
Jesse Draper: Well, I'd assume him.
Ketan Anjaria: One is me. My background is as a developer. I'm in developing since I was five years old. Wrote my first game at five. I've had three start-ups already now. Two of them funded by 500 Start-ups. Most of them being revenue positive. The other two-
Tim Draper: I have a big question. Have the investors in those companies made money?
Ketan Anjaria: Not yet.
Tim Draper: Okay. And why did you leave them? I mean, if you're an entrepreneur ... are you one of the serial entrepreneurs that I watch out for?
Jesse Draper: He does not like serial entrepreneurs.
Ketan Anjaria: No. I think in the first one we didn't have a clear revenue model. In the second one ... what's really happening is HireClub's taking over everything. While with the other one, we are making $60k a month right now in revenue, it's become clear that HireClub is my life.
Bill Draper: HireClub has been in business for six years ... how many years?
Ketan Anjaria: Six years.
Tim Draper: And what are the revenues in that?
Bill Draper: So what are the revenues there?
Ketan Anjaria: We're experimenting with an early revenue models. The first one is services for job seekers. Things like career coaching, mentoring, even headshots, which become very viral for our group, because we-
Tim Draper: What are you're experimenting with? You've been in business for six years.
Ketan Anjaria: We were a Facebook group. We're just now starting to think about this revenue. Because remember, I was working at the other start-ups.
Tim Draper: And the companies that are hiring these people will always pay a bounty. Why haven't you been getting a piece of the bounty?
Ketan Anjaria: That's our next step. That's our next step. Clearly we're averaging about two placements a month, and if the average salary is $100k, we can make $20k a placement. But it requires me to be full time on a project team and get that going.
Bill Draper: Why didn't you hire somebody else to do all that?
Ketan Anjaria: That's a really good question. I've been hiring team members right now to help manage the growth and the platform we want to build, but sales would be one of the things that we were going to hire for on a contract basis, yes.
Jesse Draper: Is it still on Facebook right now?
Ketan Anjaria: No. We have a website, HireClub.com. You can create a profile there, you can add your projects, you add your skills. And based on that data, we can then recommend people for jobs. So it actually accelerates the job growth.
Tim Draper: My biggest concern here is the six years. You've been at it for six years, and I feel like you're giving it just part time for those six years, because you got your other two companies that you're working on. So why would anyone want to back you-
Bill Draper: You left the other two companies?
Tim Draper: No. He's still got them going.
Ketan Anjaria: No, no, no, no. One of them ended long time ago.
Tim Draper: Okay. There's [crosstalk 00:28:41]-
Ketan Anjaria: After we went TechCrunch Disrupt, audience joined but it didn't have a great revenue model so that one ended.
The other one yes, I'm still the CTO at, but we've already discussed how to ... me move on from that. I had the conversation last week about it.
Tim Draper: So that's what's-
Bill Draper: So nobody's running HireClub?
Ketan Anjaria: Well, I'm running HireClub, but no one's running it full time yet. Yeah.
Tim Draper: So that's why it's been six years and nothing's happened, or very little has happened.
Ketan Anjaria: Yeah. I mean, basically it was some-
Tim Draper: You haven't quit to just do it.
Ketan Anjaria: I haven't quit do just do it. And also, having run other companies, I didn't put any money early into HireClub and I wanted to see how it was going to grow. Think of it as an MVP platform without spending money. I've done other start-ups where I've spent money, and then it didn't grow.
Tim Draper: Well, what made you feel like this will ... okay. It's good. Now it's time to go jump ship and start HireClub? I mean, it's not like it's spread to millions and millions of people. It's still a pretty small-
Jesse Draper: He said 14,000?
Ketan Anjaria: 14,000.
Jesse Draper: And that's been over the last six years that you found 14,000?
Ketan Anjaria: In the last six months alone we've grown 4,000.
Jesse Draper: Okay.
Tim Draper: How many jobs have been created by HireClub?
Ketan Anjaria: Total, I don't have the number, but in the last 30 days, 194 jobs were posted.
Tim Draper: Posted?
Ketan Anjaria: Yeah.
Tim Draper: How many have been connected?
Ketan Anjaria: We're averaging around two a month that are closing. But actually our interview rate is really high. Typically when someone posts a job, within 15 minutes an interview is set up. Because again, it's a conversation, not a traditional job post.
Tim Draper: How much do you think you're going to get for every ... what's your business model going to be? Are you going to only do it ... only get revenue when they actually get someone? Or are you going to get revenue when they post? Where [crosstalk 00:30:24]-
Ketan Anjaria: There's obviously a clear recruiting business model when we close jobs. The reason we're experimenting with services for job seekers, I actually think the nature of work is changing. People are having different kinds of work life, and people are doing more freelance work.
So our coaches and our mentors are actually what I would call on-demand workers. They work for certain amount of hours a time, and we get 30% of that.
We think once we prove that model out, we can scale that to any kind of service. You need development, you need writing, you need directing. Whatever it is, it's an on-demand workforce. And that can scale to be something really huge.
And because it's a trusted platform, it's not a race to bottom like other platforms, like Upwork, or Fiver where people are getting $5 an hour. Our rate is $120 an hour. Imagine to be able to press the button and get someone who's really good at what they're doing, and be able to get your project done a lot faster.
Tim Draper: Wait. I don't get why you have a rate? You have a fixed rate for the people who get jobs through you?
Jesse Draper: It's like the LinkedIn model. Like, it costs $500 for a company to post a job. Right?
Tim Draper: I see. It's that rate. It's for posting.
Ketan Anjaria: No, maybe I'm not-
Bill Draper: You'd better describe that.
Ketan Anjaria: I'm ready to start it again. There's a clear revenue model around recruiting, which would be the contingency fee. You hire someone at HireClub full time, you get X percent of the salary. That's the obvious clear revenue model that we're going to work down.
But on the way to get there, what I'm seeing is a lot of people are wanting to do contract work, including our coaches. And what we're doing is, we're taking a cut of that, just like recruiters would. We're taking 30% of that.
Jesse Draper: Like a TaskRabbit or something.
Ketan Anjaria: But not on the low end. It's a much higher end model.
Jesse Draper: Yeah.
Ketan Anjaria: So we're doing this for our coaches right now, and in the last three months we made $11,000 offering services like this.
Tim Draper: So for $120 an hour, these are all programmers? Who's getting $120 an hour?
Ketan Anjaria: Any kind of service. One of the things I think the friction is in on-demand networks-
Tim Draper: I pay $120 an hour for a gardener?
Ketan Anjaria: No. It's all going to be professional level skills.
Jesse Draper: Like a lawyer or something.
Tim Draper: Okay.
Ketan Anjaria: In a lot of on-demand networks, there's friction. You have to pick the person. Who is it? Are they good? Are they bad? What's their rating? Imagine if you're calling Uber and had to pick your driver. That would be silly.
We're doing the same thing for on-demand work. You don't have to pick the person. Because they're validated, you know they're going to do good work.
Bill Draper: One of your logo is helping friends find jobs. Friends doesn't mean anything apparently, because you'll take anybody and get them a job.
Ketan Anjaria: Well, right now-
Bill Draper: What does friends mean?
Ketan Anjaria: Right now, it's still invite-only. You have to invite someone you trust to come into the network. We haven't opened it up to everybody.
Tim Draper: To come into the network, but then I thought the whole point was vouching for a friend of a friend.
Ketan Anjaria: That's usually how they get invited to the network. You vouch for someone.
Tim Draper: They're in the network, but then they're not vouched for a specific job at that time. They're just vouched-
Ketan Anjaria: It depends on how the flow works. So let's say someone posts a job, then someone could say, "Hey, Tim. You should try out for this job. You'd be good for this." And because they got tagged, they get invited to the network.
Tim Draper: So now I'm already in the network, and then I go for another job, and that other job is entirely different and maybe the guy wouldn't even vouch for me for that, but I can get hired, right?
Ketan Anjaria: Sure. I mean, once you're in the network, yes. You're in the network.
Bill Draper: And you don't know whose friend he his.
Tim Draper: So that's less valuable to the-
Ketan Anjaria: I'm not sure I understand what you're saying by that.
Tim Draper: Well, it's less valuable to the network ... I mean, to the employer. This is less valuable to the employer.
Ketan Anjaria: We haven't seen that. We've actually found that employers say LinkedIn, Hire.com, which is a hiring platform, and Triplebyte, which is a hiring platform, they've all used HireClub to place candidates. So we're the hiring platform other hiring platforms use. The quality of candidates is so much higher, and the closure rate's higher.
Jesse Draper: This is just such a competitive space, and we have to wrap up soon, so what are the three differentiators that you have that make you better than the rest?
Ketan Anjaria: We remove all the friction in hiring. We have an amazing community that vouches for each other, so the networking goes faster. And we make business and hiring happen much, much faster.
Jesse Draper: Do you have any special talents?
Ketan Anjaria: As in?
Jesse Draper: I don't know. Like, talent show talents?
Tim Draper: Can you sing?
Ketan Anjaria: I can play guitar.
Jesse Draper: Cool.
Bill Draper: Have you ever led an organization before?
Ketan Anjaria: Yes. This is my third venture.
Bill Draper: And the other two we talked ... okay, yeah.
Ketan Anjaria: Yeah. I managed teams up to 25 already.
Tim Draper: What happens if HireClub ... you know, you join full time and it goes sort of flat, whereas your other start-up takes off like a rocket? Are you going to jump over to that one? Or how's that going to work?
Ketan Anjaria: HireClub has been there for six years for me.
Bill Draper: But weren't then full time on any part of that.
Ketan Anjaria: Right. But it's not a job to me.
Bill Draper: I have a rule. And the rule is, never invest in something with a part-time manager.
Ketan Anjaria: I agree with you. That's why I want to make this full time for me.
Bill Draper: So you're going to skip when you get the money.
Ketan Anjaria: Not at all.
Tim Draper: What are you going to do with the other company?
Bill Draper: I mean, you're going to skip on to HireClub.
Ketan Anjaria: Yeah. It's going to be everything I do.
Bill Draper: I see. Good.
Tim Draper: What are you going to do with the other company?
Ketan Anjaria: They're going to find another CTO.
Tim Draper: They?
Ketan Anjaria: Yeah. It's not just me. There's other people involved obviously.
Bill Draper: Sure.
Ketan Anjaria: Yeah.
Tim Draper: Does the CEO at the other company know that you're going to be leaving?
Ketan Anjaria: Yes. We had that discussion last week. We sat down with my co-founders, we talked about it. They understand how amazing ... they've hired on HireClub. They know what it's like.
Jesse Draper: It's great. It's your best endorsement.
Ketan Anjaria: It's not only my best endorsement. There's a community aspect of HireClub that's ... you have to be a part of it to see it. A good example is, we had a few members who didn't have any money, but they wanted to get headshots done. We had 15 members donate $75 each, so they could get their headshots done. We made the profit off of that, but they donated those services. I don't know any other community where people are helping each other out to find jobs.
Bill Draper: We have to quit right now, but would you just give me your idea of what your company is worth in money?
Ketan Anjaria: We're doing a $4 million cap [inaudible 00:37:06].
Bill Draper: So you think it's worth $4 million now.
Ketan Anjaria: Yes. Yes.
Bill Draper: Thanks.
Ketan Anjaria: Thank you.
Jesse Draper: Great. Thank you so much.
Bill Draper: I appreciate it.
Tim Draper: Thanks for coming.
Ketan Anjaria: Thank you.
Jesse Draper: Thank you.
Bill Draper: I appreciate you coming.
Ketan Anjaria: Thank you.
Tim Draper: What did you guys think?
Jesse Draper: What do we think?
Tim Draper: What do you think of HireClub?
Bill Draper: It's highly competitive as you figured out-
Jesse Draper: Very competitive.
Bill Draper: And I'm not sure he's a guy who I really think has thought it through and is really ready to build, or ... I mean, he's coming on as the CEO, but he's been working on two other companies as CEO and they haven't done much. I would not like it.
Jesse Draper: Yeah. I feel like ... I feel the same way. I feel like I need to see more focus. And also he's raising some money for two salaries, but they may need more of a team, and more of a whole business plan.
Tim Draper: I think he's been ... If HireClub was such a great idea six years ago, he should have-
Bill Draper: He should have jumped then.
Tim Draper: ... jumped then.
Jesse Draper: Yeah.
Tim Draper: But he's waited six years-
Jesse Draper: I know. I thought he got 14,000-
Tim Draper: ... and sort of drifted out, waited for something.
Jesse Draper: ... this year.
Bill Draper: And it hasn't gone anywhere.
Tim Draper: Yeah. So I am ... well, what do we do about our thumbs?
Jesse Draper: Thumbs up, thumbs down, thumbs all around.
Tim Draper: My thumb is down.
Bill Draper: Three downs.
Jesse Draper: Thumbs up, thumbs down, thumbs all around.
Tim Draper: We already had to do this. Anyway. My thumb is down. Way down.
Bill Draper: Okay.
Ketan Anjaria: Hi, I'm Ketan Anjaria, and I'm the founder of HireClub. I started HireClub as a Facebook group six years ago to help friends find jobs.
Jesse Draper: Well-
Tim Draper: What do you guys think?
Jesse Draper: What do we-
Tim Draper: What do you think of HireClub?
Bill Draper: I'm not sure he's a guy who I really think has thought it through, and is really ready to build.
Jesse Draper: I feel the same way. I feel like I need to see more focus, and also he's raising some money for two salaries, but they may need more of a team and more of a whole business plan.
Tim Draper: If HireClub was such a great idea, six years ago-
Bill Draper: He should have jumped up.
Tim Draper: He should've jumped then, but he's waited six years and sort of drifted out.
Jesse Draper: I know, I thought he got 14,000, this year.
Tim Draper: Waited for something.
Bill Draper: And it hasn't gone anywhere.
Tim Draper: Yeah.
Jesse Draper: Thumbs up, thumbs down, thumbs all around.
Tim Draper: My thumb is down.
Bill Draper: Three downs.
