Talent Acquisition

Offered exclusively to early stage startups, we support staffing of mid-level managers and functional specialists. The critical nature of hires at this stage of the company’s lifecycle can present some of the same challenges found in searching for more senior roles in an established setting. August Venture Talent manages the details involved in recruitment so that the founders and key leaders can focus on building the business.

Advisory and Other Services

August Venture Talent also advises on talent strategy. Or we can serve as scouts for mapping the talent landscape or building the pipeline for future hires. We can help identify and remove certain barriers to diversity and work with your organization to create a more inclusive culture.
