You can have the best systems, the best platform, a great idea, plenty of money and every other advantage but you’ll fail if you don’t attract and keep the right people.

"Recruiting for Technology startups is unique and isn't for every firm.  The talent pool for start-ups is much smaller and competition for quality candidates is fierce.   Start-ups and Venture Partners choose us for our deep industry knowledge, our ability to qualify deeply and tell their story in a compelling way to a sophisticated candidate base."

Finding the right leaders to carry out your vision and build your company is a massive challenge.  Hilman Partners never fails to come up with unique, ideal fit candidates who have been painstakingly researched, vetted and prepped for the process so no time is wasted. Part detectives, part psychologists, part diplomats and all business. While they can boast of a great stable of talent they already know, their typical senior executive searches for me have been highly focused fresh start projects optimized around our needs. A perfect combination of old school talent sleuthing combined with the most contemporary techniques."
