Want to know why I named my company Funk Futures? No? Well, too bad, because I am gonna tell you anyway. I wanted to help build a path to future success for tech companies, for operators, and for people looking for jobs. The plan was always to get into the recruiting and headhunting game, but we needed a partner. Enter Talnt Team. For the last year, Nate Ollestad and his group out of Austin, have been incredible at filling roles. David Claunch and Nate Dogg join the pod to rap about the differences in recruiting in traditional tech vs Upstream and Energy Tech, the future of AI, Silicon Valley Bank, and their backgrounds. Fun one!
