We’re pleased to announce that we’ve launched a new recruitment function for ventures listed on VC4Africa, the first steps in creating a one-stop shop where startups can search for qualified talent, and where skilled experts and others can seek out the best new companies.
Building a great company is hard to do. To successfully take a concept to market you have to create outstanding products and services. And although we might be called Venture Capital for Africa, we know entrepreneurs need a lot more than just cash. Building a great company requires access to the right network, expertise and knowledge along the way. It also means you have a great team in place to execute the vision. Simply put, entrepreneurs who operate alone have little chance of survival.
“Treat recruiting as life or death for your company because it is. Building an exceptional team is the most important thing you can do as a young leader. If you’re great at it, you will likely succeed. If not, you will likely fail.”
— Craig Driscoll, Highland Capital Partners
True to the VC4Africa mission, we seek to disrupt the marketplace by putting the entrepreneur in control. It’s the direct peer-to-peer approach we take to our mentorship and fundraising programs, that we now apply to entrepreneurs seeking to build great teams. With the new tools we look to cut the recruiters out of the hiring process and make connections directly between startups and the talent needed to drive their development.
