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.“

how we work

We advise all of our startup founders to get clear about what they are hiring for and then to build a custom, robust interview process to assess for exactly what is needed in every hire.

By building an objective, evidence -based interview process our startups are able to create a formula for hiring that ensures that hire the best candidate for the role, while also removing personal bias from the process and giving every candidate a fair shot.
