How can early stage startups compete for talent against big tech?
One major challenge that I have seen while working at Prepared, is how startups can compete over talent with Big Tech, especially early-stage startups. They are being out competed on almost all fronts: salary, stability, work-life-balance. There are ******always****** larger startups, ones with more money, ones with more revenue, or ones that are working on ‘cooler’ technology. With all these other factors, how can an early stage company compete for top talent?

GHP #83 - Saving Lives & Re-Inventing Emergency Services with Neal Soni!
Prepared is a start-up building technology to better connect citizens to the US emergency calling system. Currently, 911 call centres are technologically antiquated and unable to accept anything besides calls. Prepared’s services allow 911 dispatchers to send callers a text that connects them to a web app, where they can upload images, videos, GPS location, and even message back and forth.
