Venture Capital & Start-up Experience

Working with fast-growing technology businesses has been at our core since the beginning. 

10 years ago, soon after inception, we were helping companies such as Visual DNA and Last FM build their leadership teams. And as we’ve grown, so has our involvement with early stage businesses. In addition, we recruit across all levels of a business, from board-level down.

We don't just try and empathise with fast-growing companies, we share your experiences. 

In 2016, La Fosse nearly doubled our size, which meant hiring 100 people in 12 months. This experience created new challenges for our employees at all levels - from managers, to office operations, to the L&D team. However, it also gave us a real insight into what fast growth actually means.

Relationships are important to us.

We’d love to help, whether you’re an early seed-stage business, needing advice on your recruitment process, or you’ve just completed a large series B round and you need our West Coast office to help you find your first hire in the U.S.

Please do get in touch to find out how we can partner to help build your business.

Campaign work

We appreciate that one of the biggest challenges facing start-ups is scaling; it's very difficult to sustain high growth rates, while maintaining a strong focus on hiring the best talent who fit with your company culture.

We want to help you during this period as much as possible, and not simply just through recruitment, but by helping you to build the right infrastructure to scale.
