French Tech Boston is starting a new commission called Attract Talents. Can you tell us what it is?
The commission Attract Talents aims to enhance the recruiting process of French startups in Boston. We know that hiring could be challenging for a start-up: lack of visibility, lack of time, new to the market; and we want to companies bridge these gaps.
Why is it important to French Tech Boston to offer such an opportunity to its members?
FTB Members are facing difficulties to recruit the best talents. French Tech Boston is aimed to support its members in this challenge and promote French companies throughout the local universities where the best talents are.
How can/will members benefit from it?
Members will benefit by having access to a very large pool of students and young professionals from the elite universities of the east coast, an increased visibility among the MIT and Harvard students. We negotiate discounted rates for our members to get them visibility. We will also be onsite helping with logistics, communication and outreach talents by promoting the cluster France.
