Why we are different


Inroads into the best start-ups.
Hundreds of start-ups form. Most fail. The few that make it have the highest yield. They're staffed by proven industry leaders, and funded by pre-eminent sources. They're also the hardest to get into. We can connect you to them.


Our valuable relationships.
We have been building successful startups for the last 15 years. We know the people who can make it happen. We interact directly with hiring managers, bringing them the best matches for their requirements and their networks. They pay attention to our applicants because they come first.


Our ability to extend your relationships.
HTV has collaborated with PeopleStream, Inc. to build a patent-pending software system that mirrors our proven approach to high-tech start-up recruiting. We can show you how it works for you, extending relationships you already possess, but may be unaware of, to maximize your opportunities.
