Our Startup DNA

As entrepreneurs with our own stories of success and failures, we operate, iterate and grow as a startup ourselves. Think "Lean" recruiting.

We've recruited for the most innovative startup and scale-up teams across North America, Europe and APAC since 2019... for teams that are swinging for the fences and changing the world.

We know how to search and screen candidates for startup fit.

It's in our genes.
