Browse. Book. Bounse.

We’ve connected, so you don’t have to be. Tap into the calendars - and the minds - of trusted product, marketing, design or sales professionals who have been there, done that and worn the branded t-shirts of some of tech’s top companies.

A problem bounsed is a problem solved.

Troubleshoot. Riff. Brainstorm. High five. Have purposeful conversations that create space for clarity, breakthroughs and decisive action (the kind of outcomes that move you forward - and make you look good).

Professional development, minus the paperwork.

Courses and conferences have their place, but what most of us need is someone we can swivel our chair towards to chat through an immediate challenge. This is learning and development spend that actually gets put to use where (and when) it can make a difference.

What our users are saying

"As a fast growing tech company with a small team, we found Bounsa right when we needed it. Over the course of the last 3 months, our team has bounced everything from growth hacking, to sales strategy with a range of experts in the NZ/Aus market. We are already seeing positive results from implementing ideas we discussed."

Rebecka Finn

Head of Growth at stockinstore

"Our team at Lumin found Bounsa to be a great way to connect with people that had been there and done that, it was especially helpful in providing them with tips and tricks on how to navigate challenges they face in their roles. Because Bounsa has experts across a range of relevant fields it was easy to find someone that could add real value and just have a great conversation!"

Caleb Helm

Head of Sales & Support at Lumin

"If there was ever a cure for imposter syndrome, it’s Bounsa. There’s no denying my skills when I can see how much value an off the cuff conversation provides the people I’m bounsing with."
