Ambition’s regional managing director Paul Endacott has launched Hatch for the company, a start-up recruitment firm that will operate in Singapore and Hong Kong. The new business will be dedicated to help early stage start-ups access talent.
“With Ambition’s extensive market knowledge and experience in the start-up and high growth technology/digital space, their specialist consultants are committed to finding the best talent to fulfil business objectives - whether that’s a Series A, Series B or a future IPO,” says Hatch. “The start-up ecosystem is maturing and growing at a rapid pace in Asia, but the ability for the best start-ups to source top talent needs to be improved. Ambition’s purpose is ‘Building Better Futures’ and that continues to be our focus through the launch of Hatch. Start-ups must have the right talent to survive and prosper and we believe Hatch will play a pivotal role in this in the coming months and years.”
The Hatch offering has been designed to help start-up companies to secure the best possible talent through a wide variety of different initiatives. Hatch was the idea of Ambition group manager of Australia Simon Harris who came up with the service offering when entering Ambition’s Annual Innovation Competition in 2016. According to Ambition, it has already secured a number of partnerships in Singapore and Hong Kong and discussions are underway in Malaysia and Australia with launch plans for Hatch in those markets later this year.
