Frequently asked questions

Who does DeepBench do?

We find advisors who can provide you with the insights you need. Any industry, any position, any geography. There is no charge for a search, and it is easy to get started.

You can think of our service as a micro-consulting platform. Usually the consultation happens in the form of a 1 hour phone call, but sometimes the interactions are just a few questions emailed back and forth.

We also offer longer-term projects, permanent hires (i.e. board directors) and much more.

How do I know you can find what I need? Can I do a free test / pilot trial?

Of course – feel free to send us over a project that you need to find advisors for. We will get started for free. You don’t pay unless you like who we come up with and arrange a consultation.

After the consultation, you don’t pay if you are dissatisfied with the results. (see: “What if I’m not satisfied?”)

What if I’m not satisfied?

If you don’t like who we come up with, there is absolutely no charge for the search.

If you select someone and are dissatisfied during a consultation, please end the call within 10 minutes, and you will not be charged.

Anonymity is important for me and my organization — what can you do about that?

Generally, we encourage learners to share as much information as possible, including your identity, for optimal advisor response and match rates.

However, our system allows learners to remain anonymous by default. If advisors feel uncomfortable with your anonymity, we will work with you to understand how much we can share.

If there is no resolution of the concerns, we will forgo the revenue opportunity rather than sacrifice your privacy. We will never reveal your identity without your permission.


Legal compliance is also very important to me and my organization — how do you address these issues?

At DeepBench, we take compliance very seriously, it is paramount to our business model, and at Deepbench we have a robust framework vetted by counsel.

  2. Better Flexibility – We don’t require learners to sign long-term contracts or prepay.
  3. Better Transparency – Our long-termmission is the unlock the power of expert knowledge, and we are embracing a transparent marketplace model.

But don’t take our word for it. Send us a project today – and see how we can help. There is never a cost to get started with us. You only pay when we deliver results.
