The power of networks starts here.

Today, we’re bringing company networks together to streamline and supercharge recruiting. Tomorrow, we’ll be helping you leverage networks to uncover new opportunities for hiring, fundraising, and sales. This revolution in company-building is what we call Network Relationship Management (NRM). Join us as we make this vision a reality.

In the press.

From recruiting to company-building.

Our Co-Founder & CEO, David Connors, spent years developing recruiting methods and tools before launching The Swarm. At Sequoia, 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.

We realized companies themselves 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 in different systems. This creates inefficiencies in the company-building process, leaving untapped value and opportunities on the table for recruiting, sales, and fundraising.

At The Swarm, we’re changing all that — starting with recruiting.
