On the 28th-29th of May, we’re hosting the 7th edition of our annual EU-Startups Summit in Barcelona – will you join us? This 2-day event will give you the chance to meet over 1,500 participants (founders, startup enthusiasts, corporates, angel investors, VCs, and media), learn from 70+ speakers, take part in workshops with internationally successful founders, network (via our app!) and bite your nails through our exciting pitch competition.
Today we are excited to announce a new speaker who knows a thing or two about hiring for the long-term: Ann-Christine Roope, CEO and Founder of rapidly growing Executive Search company Ethan Partners. Previously Ann-Christine was Director of International Recruiting at Rocket Internet. At the EU-Startups Summit, she will join us on the workshop stage to share her insights on “How to hire and retain top talent for your startup”.
Making sure that a new team member is a right fit, not just in terms of skills and culture, but also regarding growing responsibilities as your startup scales, is indeed key to raising the quality, productivity and efficiency of your total workforce.
Ethan Partners specialises in finding the right candidates for fast-growing and high-quality leadership teams. Having placed over 3000+ outstanding candidates and worked with companies like Deliveroo, Uber and Airbnb, Ann-Christine knows how important acquiring the right talent is for building and scaling a company. The London-based firm has particular expertise in finding excellent candidates for technology-driven startups and companies, working across 50+ countries and high-growth sectors like AI, fintech, adtech, healthtech, proptech, big data, edtech and SaaS.
Ann-Christine will bring her insights on how to find top talent for your startup, including practical steps on how to retain exceptional employees and ensure that they stay with you as your venture grows.
