Leverage our intimate knowledge of Asia’s startup ecosystem

We engaged ConnectOne for our Vietnam leadership search. Detailed, structured and excellent on the follow-up. They understood our requirements well and provided quality candidates for an extremely tough market. They understand how start-ups function very well and adapt their working style to suit our needs and schedule. A pleasure to work with!

People are key

Investing in talent management is not a luxury that only established companies enjoy. Startups need to focus on people as reactive hiring slows down growth. We work closely with startup founders to discover the gaps in their talent and lend our expertise on the Asian startup ecosystem to grow strategic teams across the region.


Our buy-build-borrow strategy

We partner with startup founders who care about developing a talent strategy for the long-term. Our “Build-Buy-Borrow framework” is tailored to discover the best strategy to groom and grow your team.

I’ve always told Elena and Joanna that I could never thank them enough for connecting me to an amazing company and helping me build a career in an industry which I’m interested in. They are more than just recruiters to me, they are career mentors that have helped me a great deal.
