How can you get talented people to work at YOUR startup so you can accelerate your business?

To answer this burning question, Inno Space has invited Kevin and Alex, the Strategic Partnership Manager at HaTCH, to share their must-know tips on building a winning team and recruitment for startups. After the seminar and Q&A session, 8 teams/founders will get to join a 15-minute free consultation session each to get some one-on-one advice on their most urgent hiring needs*.
