The Swarm is here to empower the world's connectors. They bring people and ideas together in new and meaningful ways. They understand that no great achievement is accomplished alone, and that the power of a network is greater than the sum of its parts. They're the founders, leaders, investors, and networkers who see connections where others see only boundaries. With connectors leading the way, the possibilities are limitless.
The Swarm is here to help connectors build, activate, and harness the untapped value of their own firm's collective network. Our vision is for a new type of platform we call Network Relationship Management (NRM).
Companies are built on networks, from the initial founder's network to introductions from advisors or referrals for sales. Yet the personal and trusted connections of team members, investors, and advisors are often siloed or lost in different systems. This creates inefficiencies in the company-building process, leaving untapped opportunities for recruiting, sales, networking, fundraising, and more. At The Swarm, our vision is to change all that.
It all started with recruiting: Co-Founder & CEO David Connors spent years developing recruiting methods and tools before launching The Swarm. At Sequoia Capital, he learned the potential of harvesting individual networks into a collective aggregated hive. That's something traditional recruiting tools, job boards, or social platforms like LinkedIn were never intended to do. The idea for The Swarm was born.
