How it works


Let retired industry experts solve your challenges. Receive solutions and get access to talent.

The Retired Talents platform allows you to submit challenges you are facing. During a challenge a retired industry expert will help you solve your problem, such as exploring new markets, validating new value propositions or exploring effective growth strategies. 

What is in it for you?

  • The opportunity to be matched with a retired industry expert who has years of experience
  • Access to a network and talent pool
  • Dynamic way to gather new insights


Submit a challenge using the SMART way

After formulating a business plan, our team will refine it and get it published.

Get matched to a retired industry expert

Receive a list of retired industry experts interested in solving your challenge through video pitches or motivation letters made by them.

Get your challenge solved

The actual challenge runs during a certain period that you discussed with the retired industry expert we put you in contact with. Typically this process starts with a kick off meeting between you and the retired industry expert, after which the retirees will get to work.
