who we are

“We’re passionate about helping founders that care about building diverse and inclusive startups to hire the employees that move the needle.

I spent 5 years building engineering teams at Facebook and I learnt a lot in that time, but there is nothing more fulfilling than helping founders of early-stage startups to make their first hires.

We get invested in the success of the startups we partner with and there is nothing we love more than seeing the impact of key hires we’ve helped make.“
