Introduction

Since the very beginning of Kerala Ventures, our will has always been to bring a unique and strong value proposition to early-stage founders. To draw this value proposition, we did what any entrepreneur would have done: talk to our clients. So at the end of every board meeting, we asked our founders: “what topics can Kerala take from your plate to help you accelerate?”

Recruitment was systematically in their 3 main concerns.

This is not surprising as we all know it’s one of the 4 pillars of every business (Vision / Recruitment / Management / Cash).

Doing the right thing, doing it right and having enough cash to do it.

So we decided to create a unique value proposition to help founders source, interview and close the best team players.

After 1,000+ interviews & ~100 recruitments executed for our portfolio companies over the past years, we wanted to take a few steps back to share the methodologies Kerala developed.
