Our Team


The largest re-skilling and job placement platform for the tech industry.

Our Mission

We enable driven individuals to transform their future through learning and opportunity, while connecting them with growing tech companies.

Our Story

Aspireship’s Founder, Corey Kossack, previously founded a SaaS company that was acquired by a publicly traded company with thousands of employees and hundreds of SaaS sales reps.

Throughout the journey from small startup to large growth company, Corey quickly realized that the greatest challenge of operating a fast-growth SaaS company is hiring, developing and retaining good salespeople. Even inside a very successful SaaS company, hiring was slow, performance was scattered and employee turnover was high. As Corey looked deeper, he discovered that companies everywhere were facing these same challenges.

At the same time, talented people from other departments within the company started approaching Corey for advice on how to land a spot on the sales team, as hiring managers dismissed them due to lack of sales experience. Corey also started talking to experienced sales reps outside of the tech industry who couldn’t secure a role in SaaS sales, simply because their past experience wasn’t in the SaaS sector.

With the massive opportunity in hand to reshape the way professionals pursue career changes and companies make hiring decisions, Aspireship was born in October of 2019.

Solution

Aspireship has created a platform to identify, assess and train best-fit candidates and match them with growing tech companies, starting with sales roles at SaaS (software-as-a-service) companies. Our unique approach creates an exclusive, premium pool of high-quality candidates and automatically suggests ideal candidates to companies.

Why now

  • The "Great Resignation is fueling the largest wave of career and job changers in history.
  • The shift to remote work has disrupted the talent and hiring ecosystem.
  • Widespread talent shortages are forcing hiring managers to consider candidates with non-traditional experience.

Business Model

Companies pay to recruit new hires through our platform. 

Candidates access Aspireship for free, with options for premium upgrades.

Network Effects

We've built a powerful flywheel to drive network growth and recurring use. The larger the network gets, the faster it grows.

We're tackling a huge societal problem and a massive market at the same time, beginning with SaaS sales jobs.

Candidate Success - The Best Part

We've helped thousands of candidates land a job they love, and we're just getting started. Check out our many success stories or read about our work in the Wall Street Journal.

FAQ

How does this crowdfund work?

    (1) Join Wefunder by clicking ‘Sign Up’ in the top right corner. While we are prioritizing our community for this crowdfund (Aspireship candidates, hiring partners and guest contributors), those who are not directly part of the Aspireship community today are welcome to make reservations as well.
      (2) Choose an amount you’re comfortable with
      - You can commit any amount you’d like up to your legal max, from $100USD.
        (3) Confirm reservation

        - Wefunder will reserve your chosen amount. When the campaign ends, you’ll confirm your reservation, and the funds will be deposited to Aspireship.

        - If we exceed our maximum allotment for this round, we’ll refund some contributions (more on refunds below).

        What happens if the maximum allotment is exceeded?

        If the crowdfund becomes oversubscribed, we may need to refund you some or all of your reservation amount. 

        What is the minimum investment?

        The minimum check size is $100USD.


        What's the maximum I am legally allowed to invest?

        Through Regulation Crowdfunding everyone is allowed to invest at least $2,200. How much you're able to invest above $2,200 depends on your net income and net worth. You can see how much you're allowed to invest by adding those two numbers under "Investor Limits" here: https://wefunder.com/settings. You can also view a quick explanation of the rules in the image below.



        While you may be legally able to invest more, your investment may be lowered depending on the interest we receive in this round.

        Do I need to be an accredited investor?

        No. Wefunder allows you to invest without being an accredited investor. All you have to do is sign up and invest.

        Do I have to do anything for Aspireship as an investor?

        No. All you do is invest. Our lead investor will provide any required signatures.

        When will my investment leave my account?

        If you fund your Wefunder Cash account, your funds will move from your account immediately, similar to online shopping. You can also choose to wait to fund your reservation until after we've filed with the SEC. Once we've filed with the SEC you'll be able to pay via bank account, wire transfer, credit card, or check.

        Wefunder will email you to confirm your commitment once we file our Form C with the SEC (Securities and Exchange Commission) and close the campaign. Once you confirm, the funds and the campaign is closed are permanently deposited into Aspireship via Wefunder. This is irreversible and confirmed investments cannot be refunded.
