Startups

The founder’s real world work experience in the tech startup ecosystem makes TechTalent refreshingly unique. We get that your overall DNA and wiring is different than larger, more established companies. Whether you’re an early stage startup or a maturing, fast growing small tech company (perhaps enjoying or seeking additional rounds of capital, VC funding, etc.), TechTalent is positioned to offer creative solutions to address your unique needs. Since startup company needs vary widely (e.g. cash-flow challenges, flexible staffing needs, nuanced company culture, etc.), TechTalent is ready to strategically partner with your management team via custom tailored solutions.

Why the great affection for Startups?

Prior to pivoting to the tech search/staffing domain in 1996, the founder of TechTalent (launched 2004) was performing as a technical manager for a small, fast growing San Diego based software company. While still managing Technical Support Services, VAR Technical Training programs and aspects of IT Ops, the company was successfully sold. A few years after the successful exit, he shifted into the technical recruiting space and has always embraced that startup ride. The result of that adventure has been a source of an enthusiastic commitment to offering startup clients a genuine value via flexibility and creativity.

Custom Startup Solutions

At the heart of any client-recruiter relationship, creative solutions often boil down to Search Agreement terms that make sense for both parties. Based on this concept it is TechTalent’s ongoing commitment to keep an open mind when crafting and negotiating the various moving parts that make up any search agreement. The goal is to find the best solution for your management team.

‘Will Work for Equity’

In the true spirit of having skin in the game, TechTalent is absolutely open and genuinely interested in exploring/discussing the bold option of a potential equity position in your beloved startup for services rendered.

More specifically, this might include NSOs, convertible notes, cash/equity combo arrangements, etc. as long as the business/revenue model, value proposition, and market opportunity make sense.

We’re genuinely striving for a win-win with this approach when an equity stake arrangement makes sense. An equity position in your startup effectively takes the concept of a partnership to the next level.

So, don’t be shy about exploring this option with us as this type of strategic arrangement is what makes the search for talent the most exciting and rewarding for us.
