About Us

Talent Acceleration is our high-touch approach to solving our clients’ recruitment challenges. We serve as a partner to fast growth, startup companies that don’t have the structure, time, or resources to do efficient, cost-effective, high-quality hiring. Because in lean startups, the negative impact of hiring the wrong person has an enormous price, we develop recruitment strategies and contribute to our client's culture to facilitate their rapid team expansion. We’ve reinvented the traditional practice of recruitment by implementing our unique talent solution in-house, resulting in the accelerated growth of our clients.

  • We engage in an exclusive, transparent, flexible relationship with our clients, which is the key to our success
  • We advise and coach clients and candidates every step of the way
  • We are engaged as the sole recruiting channel for clients’ open positions
  • We are a flexible solution that can be engaged for fixed periods of time and then re-engaged during later stages of growth
