Talent Matchmaking

Does your startup want to grow faster but doesn’t have enough manpower because of financial restraints? Do you want to join startups but are afraid of the uncertainty that comes along with it?

The Shortcut together with A Grid presents: “Talent x Startup speed dating” to connect startups with highly skilled talents. The talent x startup speed dating consists of the keynote, pitching for startups and talents, speed networking sessions and mingle.

We will show you the mechanisms which can cover part of the salary in order to get the startups & participants familiar that some of the salaries may be compensated.

The event will motivate people to join new startups whilst decreasing their worries about living conditions, also encourage startups to open new job opportunities that, in turns, increase their growth in early stages. This will also reduce the operating costs for startups which lessen the chance of them failing due to monetary issues.
