Backed by world-class investors
Our mission is to empower people to reach the highest levels of their career potential. Talent outcomes are limited by the information and process asymmetry they have with employers. We're inspired by models in Hollywood and sports. Representation has enabled talented people to perform on the court and on the screen while letting experts manage the business end of their careers. That's why we're lucky to count celebreties like 2x NBA champion Kevin Durant and world-renowned DJ Kygo as investors in Free Agency.
The values that guide us
Bet on aptitude over experience. We live in a the world of talent and know that people are severely underrated. Great people achieving their potential are what make great teams.
Obsess over storytelling. Whether it's an internal memo to change process or the way we sell a client's career, narratives and thoughful writing make a big difference.
Make probablistic decisions. Every choice is a bet on the likelihood of an outcome. Thinking in probabilities makes decisions less intimidating, unlocking quick movement.
Lead with opinion. We see careers, recruiting processes, teams, and companies at scale. Our informed opinion and trove of data enable us to improve the lives of our clients.
Embrace a long time horizon. We have a vision of the world and are creating a new category. We build both for today and for the next several generations of our clients' careers.
Experiment, tinker, and reinvent. We constantly remind ourselves that our best ideas are still ahead us. If there is a better way to do something, we rush toward it.
