In today's fast-paced business environment, finding and recruiting the best technical professionals is crucial for any organization looking to stay ahead of the competition. However, the process of hiring skilled technical talent can be challenging and time-consuming, especially if you lack the expertise or network to find the right people.

That's where a technical headhunter like BairdTech comes in - a specialist recruiter who can help organizations find the best talent quickly and efficiently. Technical headhunters have extensive networks of talented professionals in various fields, including software engineering, data science, cybersecurity, and more. They work tirelessly to connect organizations with the right candidates who possess the necessary skills and experience to meet their unique requirements.

Working with a technical headhunter can help organizations reduce their technical debt, which is the cost of taking shortcuts or making trade-offs that have long-term consequences. Technical debt can accumulate over time, resulting in increased development costs, reduced quality of the software product, and missed project deadlines. According to an article by InformationWeek, Debrup Ghosh who is a senior product manager in the Software Integrity Group at Synopsis says “..the average tech debt is often 20-25%…”.

One of the biggest causes of technical debt is a lack of skilled technical professionals on the team. When organizations are unable to find and recruit the right talent, they may settle for less experienced or qualified candidates who may not be able to keep up with the demands of the job. According to an article written by Erik Dietrich of DaedTech, he talks about the hidden business cost of turnover and attrition. He mentioned technical debt can make hiring more difficult to hire and it will take longer and longer for new hires to become productive. He wrote"So when you think of tech debt, don’t think only in terms of the business problem of delayed features and rising defect counts. Think of the human cost, and the much more serious, much longer term business problem that results".

By working with a technical headhunter, organizations can avoid these problems and reduce their technical debt. Headhunters can connect companies with the best talent, thereby ensuring that their teams are staffed with skilled professionals who can make informed technical decisions and work efficiently. This, in turn, can help organizations stay competitive, meet project deadlines, and deliver high-quality products and services.

Moreover, partnering with a technical headhunter like BairdTech can also help organizations speed up their production process. When companies hire the right talent, they can get the job done more quickly and efficiently, leading to increased revenue and profitability. While there is a cost associated with working with a headhunter, it is often outweighed by the long-term benefits that come from having the right talent on your team.

If you're struggling to find and recruit the best technical talent, partnering with a technical headhunter is a wise investment that can pay off in the long run. By reducing technical debt, increasing production speed, and staying competitive, organizations can deliver high-quality products and services that meet the needs of their customers.

When it comes to securing funding from angel investors and venture capitalists (VC's), having a strong pitch deck is essential. A pitch deck is a visual presentation that outlines your business idea, value proposition, target market, competition, financial projections, and team. It's a powerful tool that can help you communicate your vision, passion, and expertise in a clear and concise way.

According to a recent study by DocSend, a document sharing platform for businesses, the average investor spends only 2 minutes and 24 seconds reviewing a pitch deck. This means that you have a very limited amount of time to make a strong impression and convince investors that your business is worth their time and money.

Furthermore, an earlier study also found that pitch decks that received funding had an average length of 19 pages, while those that didn't receive funding had an average length of 42 pages. This suggests that brevity and clarity are crucial when it comes to pitch decks, and that investors are more interested in the quality of your content rather than the quantity.

Another study by Harvard Business Review revealed that the top three factors that investors consider when evaluating a pitch are the strength of the management team, the size of the potential market, and the uniqueness of the product or service. A well-crafted pitch deck can address all of these factors and help you stand out from the crowd.

They say that nothing is ever wasted. This will explain why on my LinkedIn profile I am a self proclaimed Beauty & Fashion enthusiast. For nearly 20yrs, I worked for L’Oreal in their Professional Brands Division in various positions: education, product development, and creative direction. To be honest, I've always kept my eye close on the tech world, and would find a way to implement new tech in my positions (from digital mood boards to social media engagement). This past year at Baird Tech and working with tech startups, it's really opened my eyes to so many parallels in both industries. With NYFW is going on now in real time, here is how tech & fashion actually share several similarities.

  1. INNOVATION & IMPROVEMENT: Betterment isn’t just in performance, it’s creating something that the consumer didn’t know what they themselves needed or desired. Whether you are targeting organizations or individuals, initial innovation needs to happen, then consistent improvement is post development.

  2. DATA DRIVEN DECISIONS: As we know, development & production is expensive, so the insight of data & analytics is a critical part of RDI, then into marketing & distribution strategies.

  3. CUSTOMER-CENTRIC: Both industries focus on creating a personalized and convenient customer experience through the use of technology i.e. social media, e-commerce, and the convenience of mobile apps.

  4. SUSTAINABILITY: Let’s talk packaging - there’s plastics, metals, reactionary chemicals… all play a part in both industries. Both spaces are working hard to develop minimal or recyclable waste without not only compromising, but yet improving performance in product.

  5. BRANDING & AESTHETICS: Apple is the epitome of branding and aesthetics when comes to tech. Think about most acquisitions - the branding & vision is so clear, whether it’s Beats headphones or a haircare/Make Up brand. Broad or niche, taste & image always matter. Even if you think it isn’t in tech (ask a UI engineer, its critically important), it’s the first point of the user experience. Fashion there are different tastes & likes… music too. It’s all connected.

  6. MARKETING & GLOBAL REACH: Let’s be honest, both industries always have a goal of a global presence. Thankfully with a lot of hard work, smart innovation, pleasing aesthetics, and high performance, products and services can be sold and distributed worldwide.

Although fashion & beauty tends to lean towards being extraverted whereas tech leans introverted, they both pay great attention to detail. I look forward to continuing this new journey in tech and bring a fresh perspective over into the space!
