Ed: If you listen to VC Hunter Walk, a startups ability to gain Hiring Momentum (the ability to attract and hire great people in sufficient numbers) is a key indicator for likely success.
If you can’t attract enough great people then it doesn’t matter how much cash you raise or how good the core product/tech/app etc is, you simply wont be able to execute without the right people.
So on that basis, tools that make your startup better at recruiting people have to be a good investment for the companies.
Recruitment is a real problem for startups, they often have to convince people to take on jobs when they are unknown or pay less than large established companies. Solutions that effectively solve this problem are likely to be successful.
Im a fan of this product.
