While I built this site to help college students and grads find out about entry level jobs at interesting companies, I’ve heard from a few people who use it very differently. One of the most surprising uses was from someone in Corporate Development at a pretty big company–she was using the daily e-mails to source potential acquisitions (though I don’t think any have actually happened). I think that’s pretty cool, but there are certainly better places to find deals. AxialMarket is one of them. They’re a New York, NY based company that “is revolutionizing the capital formation process for private companies.” In other words, they’ve built a marketplace where private companies can find partners for “M&A, capital raises, and debt financings.”
What makes AxialMarket really interesting to me is that its CEO is Peter Lehrman. He’s not Thomas Lehrman who founded the Gerson Lehrman Group, but he was part of the founding team (and I’m guessing related in someway to Thomas). GLG connects businesses with subject matter experts for a fee. AxialMarket is using a similar model to address a very different need. You can get a feel for how the network works here, and you can see the end result of successful connections in AxialMarket’s Success Stories. A “social network” with only 8,500 members usually wouldn’t be all that interesting from a business perspective, but it certainly is when you consider the financial pull that AxialMarket’s members have. AxialMarket looks like an extremely interesting place to work, so take a look at their Jobs page. They have a few positions that a new or recent grad might want to consider including Front-End Engineer, Product Analyst, and Account Executive. You can also apply for an unlisted position. If you want to get an inside peek at what it’s like to work at AxialMarket, check out their Tumblr.
