Too often investors think the venture industry thrives on technology but in fact it thrives on entrepreneurial talent who then drive that technology. There is no one better than Laura Morse to help you find then hire that talent. She never just recommends a candidate, she defines the needs and convinces the right person they want to work for you. And don’t forget the planned and unplanned “exits” of talent: Laura will help you safely navigate those tricky waters as well.
