The story of Make Positive

 

Matt Cooksley pitched at our London Pitching for Management event in May 2012 for a Non-Executive Chairman. Read about his journey...

 

Make Positive is a cloud technology company, Headquartered in London, with regional offices in Manchester and Delhi. We are a Platinum Salesforce.com consulting partner, and an Independent Software Vendor with products ranging from telecoms billing solutions, social enterprise, CRM, contact centres and collaboration.

 

 

Matt Cooksley, Managing Director of Make Positive, comments: “I have been a huge fan of Modwenna and the team at Angel News for many years, and given where Make Positive was in its growth journey, Pitching For Management seemed like a great opportunity for us. We had just raised over $1m of investment, and were looking to grow our team from 20 people to 100 in 18 months. (We are currently on track, with 60 employees after 9 months). We had recently set up a Products Division to run alongside our core consulting division, and were looking for a Chairman or non-exec with deep experience in commercialising software products. Among the many great people we met at Pitching For Management, we were lucky enough to find Martin. However, it became clear very quickly that, rather than just being a non-exec, he would be the perfect person to run our Products Division, given his background at Oracle (he was Head of EMEA B2B Solutions) as well as being CEO of a number of tech start-ups transitioning from consulting to products companies.

 

Moreover, we also got some very interesting business leads during the networking part of the evening.

 

 

And all this for just £150 - certainly beats using Head-hunters, and is a lot more fun!

"Through Pitching for Management, we found one of our core team in an evening. I can't think of another way this could possibly have happened so swiftly."
