“The idea for Kahuso came to us while we were working as freelance executives ourselves, helping companies grow. We saw how important it was for these companies to have access to experienced executives on a flexible basis, and at the same time, how there were so many senior executives trying to find employers with these exact needs. Surprisingly, there just wasn’t a good platform dedicated to connecting the two groups—so we created it!”
Kahuso is a sophisticated online marketplace that connects accomplished executives and professionals with companies for full-time, contract, advisory and board opportunities. We leverage a deeper data set in our matching algorithm including various preferences, experience, expertise, cultural fit and professional attributes to deliver more intelligent results for both executives and companies alike.
