I recently launched a self-funded search here in Chicago and would love to connect with folks in the space - regardless of traditional, self-funded, sponsored, or accelerator paths. I've invested in a few self-funded searches of my own in the past, but am now sitting on the other side of table and would love to connect / meetup for coffee or drinks with folks pursuing a similar path! Would be great to discuss shared learnings (CRM, key tools to improve efficiency), respective approaches to searches (proprietary vs. brokered) and any other experiences that have helped to scale the learning curve! Message me if interested in connecting further!
