A startup is just a crazy vision until someone makes it happen.
When you're starting out and you have nothing, what really makes the difference are the people in your team. ✨

At TheFamily, we see time and time again that finding & retaining the right talent is one of the biggest pain for entrepreneurs.
Never mind that working for a startup today is sexy. When you're in the midst of growth and chaos, you need an exceptional team to hold it all together. ✊

So if people are your #1 asset, let's talk seriously about HR 
Join us to hear Lauren Lindh, Head of Talent Acquisition at Cherry Ventures, share her best tips & tools for hiring your A-team.

Lauren is responsible for supporting Cherry and portfolio companies with everything HR-related. Before that, Lauren worked at McKinsey & Co., Egon Zehnder International and Rocket Internet, both in Brazil and Germany, supporting different ventures with recruiting across different regions.
