RSVP to join the virtual Outside of the Box “Finding Founder Talent to Drive Corporate Ventures” with Matt Buckland and Hattie Willis @Rainmaking Venture Studio

Talent is the number one reason cited by VCs to invest in a venture. So how does it work for corporate venturing, where you have to go out and find the founders? In this fireside chat, Rainmaking Venture Studio’s Head of Talent Matt Buckland will share how he thinks about talent for venture building. He brings hands on experience in fast scaling startups including Facebook, Workable, Lyst and Forward Partners, to ensure the Studio has the best processes, structure and network to repeatably hire proven entrepreneurs and incentivise them to rapidly build new ventures, or even harder, to kill the ideas that don’t work.

From when and where you go looking, to how you interview, right through to keeping your talent motivated with equity and empowerment, he’ll be interviewed by the Studio’s Associate Principal Hattie Willis, to answer all your burning questions on attracting and retaining the elusive entrepreneur.

Matt has over 18 years experience in recruitment and people operations for a variety of businesses and industries across the world. Whilst currently leading talent strategy for Rainmaking Venture Studio, he has also led teams at Lyst, Bloomberg, ThoughtWorks, Getco, Criteo and Facebook. He is a speaker at HR, Recruitment and tech conferences and is still yet to make the leap from a blog to a podcast – blog here – http://thekingsshilling.io
