Throughout his career, Andy Mercy, CEO of Dabba, has always kept a strong network of mentors and advisors. When starting Dabba, a fast-casual restaurant with a culturally adventurous spirit, Andy found it necessary to create an advisory board specializing in real estate acquisition and culture building to help his growing business. He wanted to surround himself with the best in the industry to avoid the gaps and pitfalls that come with starting a new company.
“When I decided to start Dabba, creating an advisory board with expertise in areas I needed seemed like the best next step to growing my restaurant business. When used effectively, an advisory board can be an incredible asset to moving any business forward. I chose AdvisoryCloud to expedite the process of finding the best possible candidates for my board,” said Andy.
At Dabba, creativity and business strategy are two key priorities. When searching for advisors, Andy was looking for applicants who could advise on technology, product sales, business operations, and industry networking.
With AdvisoryCloud, Andy was able to find dozens of candidates that matched his needs in a matter of days. One candidate, in particular, was a culture guru who had written several books and presented at a TED talk on the evolution of company culture. After Andy spoke with him for two hours, it was clear that this person could positively impact his business on many levels, and he was brought onto Dabba’s advisory board.
“AdvisoryCloud gave me access to dozens of precisely matched and brilliantly qualified professionals I never would have found otherwise. The combination of technology and due diligence that takes place behind the scenes is incredible, I’m incredibly grateful for the work AdvisoryCloud did for my company,” said Andy.
“AdvisoryCloud is an excellent platform for connecting companies with advisors that have the expertise my business needs when my business needs it.
