Executive Search Solutions for

Venture Capitalists

We love the fact that more Investors and VC firms offer HR and talent acquisitions services as part of the offering to their portfolios.

It can’t be stressed enough how important people are to any business, and how especially critical acquiring the right talent is at startup and scale-up stages, arguably the most challenging phases of a business lifecycle.

It matters for your startup founders to know and feel that you support them beyond the cash – you are ready to advise and offer guidance on People Strategy and Hiring. After all, without the right teams in place, they won’t be able to reach their goals.

That’s were we come in.

Adding extra value to your start-up and scale-up portfolio

We are here to augment those services as your trusted Talent Acquisition partner.
We will support the most critical and most difficult hires your portfolio startups need to make.

KeyHire helped us with one of our investments’ UK Leadership expansion needs. They are fast; we liked the fact that they were able to compose on-target candidate list in a very short period of time. They were also able to give detailed info regarding the candidates. They are flexible, open to receive feedback. KeyHire are not a headhunter with “I am done after 5 candidates shortlisted” approach. Very collaborative and responsible. Ready to go extra mile if needed. We will definitely work with them again for our portfolio companies.
