Masterclass: How Can Investors be Your Assets For Talent Recruitment?

TUESDAY NOV 14th, 08:00-10:00

For many technology companies, securing the next investment round can be a challenging feat. But have you ever wondered what more your investors can bring to the table, especially when it comes to acquiring the talent you need for success?

Attracting talent is no easy task. Neither is attracting investors. But is it possible that ‘one thing can lead to another’? Join our Talent Smash event about how investors can be an asset to talent recruitment and find out yourself! 

During this conversation you will meet different investors and hear about how they work with their portfolio companies to create, develop and recruit the perfect teams for growth. So if you are a founder, an entrepreneur or a leader in a growing company, this event is made for you.

The event will be based on conversations rather than presentations, so as a guest in the audience you will be able to ask questions directly to the investors through our on stage moderator regarding this topic. 

Who should attend? 
People working in startups ang growth companies wanting to make the most out of their investor relationship in relation to attracting and hiring talent.
