"In today's tight talent market, attracting and reaching high-quality candidates is a top challenge for founders. We're in an age crowded with cold-calls and spam," said Nick Cromydas, CEO and co-founder, Hunt Club.

"The world of talent is changing and we needed a partner that understands the future needs of game-changing companies," said Sabrina Kelly, VP of Talent, Techstars. "We wanted more than just another service provider, but a trusted partner that understood the value of the network and what can happen when you leverage technology to power it."
The partnership combines the Techstars network with Hunt Club's talent expertise, leading-edge technology, and unlocks access to the 5 million potential candidate referrals that would come from 10,000 subject matter experts, giving Techstars portfolio companies an immediate avenue to vetted talent.
"We couldn't think of a better talent partner to transform the space with," said Cromydas. "Techstars already believes in the power of the network. Now it's time to deliver high-level talent to Techstars' network and help companies find their next leader."
