Technology influences every aspect of our society: online gaming, machine learning, blockchain, video streaming, ride sharing, electronic medical records. The full list of examples is much longer, and the impact on our society and economy is enormous.
While we are fortunate to partner with some of the largest companies in the world, including Microsoft, Amazon, Salesforce, Google, Comcast, and Verizon, we recognize that most tech employees work in small companies. That fact is not lost on us.
Nor is the fact that running a small to mid-sized business can be overwhelming. It takes an extreme amount of hard work and perseverance to raise capital, get a product out the door, generate profits to grow, and hire the talent to make it all happen.
This workload often feels isolating, especially when you don’t have the luxury of time to sort out where to get help or whom to trust. We’ve been there before, as have most of our members. You don’t have to do it alone.
Our team is uniquely equipped to help you meet your recruiting, capacity, and growth challenges. Furthermore, we can connect you to a network of people who have already solved the problems you’re facing and who are willing to show you a path forward.
Your time is valuable. Spend it focusing on your top priorities. Let us handle the rest.
