Welcome to Via
We built Via to boost the number of quality talent referrals you make to your companies while streamlining the process for everyone involved.
How It Works
1) Get your profile set up. ✅
We’ve imported all of the companies you’d like to have featured on your profile and given you the link.
You can put it in your Twitter and LinkedIn bios, on your fund’s site, and share it directly with talent when they ask you where they should be looking for their next job.
2) Give talent a way to find opportunities
Via streamlines things by enabling talent to self-serve. They can easily browse companies you’re connected to and request referrals through you.
3) Intro talent to your companies
You’ll receive forward-able intro requests in your inbox that you can share with your companies.
We keep track of each referral on your behalf, so you can always know the status of candidates and companies you've referred them to.
How To: Get Talent Referrals
Some of the best referral request investors have made through Via have come cold from people they’ve never met.
If you’re on Twitter there are many talent people that follow you and are looking for their next thing. Let them know that you are now taking referral requests.
Did you know that over 80% of the On Deck community told us they look at VC profiles on LinkedIn when looking for their next job?
Add your Via URL to your LinkedIn profile and you’ll drive referral requests.
How To: Promote Specific Companies
Sometimes it makes sense to share a link to a specific company on your Via profile vs a link showing all of your companies
Tweeting or posting on LinkedIn about how a specific company is hiring a bunch of roles
Blog post announcing a new investment
How To: Modify Your Profile
Currently we take care of keeping all company data on Via up-to-date. If you ever want to add or remove a company from your profile, change your profile image, etc, please feel free to email firstname.lastname@example.org and you’ll be taken care of right away.
