I am always impressed by the number of people interested in working for a start up. Both from the students I teach and audience members from various speeches, there is consistent and ongoing interest in the start up work environment. For good reason, start ups give people to opportunity to perform my roles and progress rapidly on a professional basis. But choosing the right start up is no easy task for most people. Clearly, one of the differentiators amongst start ups is which have received outside investment. And even among those receiving outside investment, which have received venture capital. The distinction of venture capital in a start up is significant has it usually indicates both current and future backing based upon the judgment of investment professionals and the completion of extensive diligence.
So where does one look for these jobs in venture capital backed startups?
Startup Hire was founded by one of the Grotech General Partners, Steve Fredrick, and has achieved impressive acceptance and sponsorship in a short time frame. The National Venture Capital Association as well as other marquee groups have put their support behind this effort.
