We're On a Mission
We are on a mission to increase success rates for early-stage and high growth startups. And to enhance the startup employee’s experience to enable better fit, culture, and desire to stick around.
We all know hiring and successful team building is harder than expected. The realization typically comes AFTER taking on the responsibility. After building, advising, observing, and measuring hiring data over 70 startups, hiring over 4000 employees enabled us to understand there was a huge void that no one has been able to fill. Experiencing the heartache of startup failures, disheartened employees because they weren’t a good fit - sparked our need to solve WHY this is a startup-dream-killer, and how to fix it. The puzzle pieces came together with the realization there IS a way to take back control of the hiring conundrum. If not solved, startups miss out on 28% of their potential success.
When entrepreneurs don’t fully understand the people side of things, how can they be expected to build a winning team? The majority of founders are technology, product, or sales oriented (generalization) – so the team building part isn’t always intuitive. Naturally, we push things to the wayside we don’t understand.
Questions most common to startups on an uphill battle
- Do you know your story?
- Do you know why certain types of employees should be excited to join?
- Do you know how to interview AND make the best decision?
- Who DO we want?
- When is it right to add new employees based on burn rate?
All of these things –and MUCH more are keys to your success.
If any of these questions have kept you up at night, you understand exactly why we built Untappt: to use the right process, tools, training, and so much more to create a winning team.
Success in business is about people, people, PEOPLE.
