Taras Polischuk, Talent Equity Ventures (TEqV) Shares His Strategies for Investing in HR Tech Start-Ups
"It all comes down to the areas in the industry where HR Tech can actually add value. There are around 500 investment opportunities that I have evaluated in the last two years. However, most of these products' main problem is that they are a point solution; and are solving a very small part of the bigger problem that customers experience. What clients want is to buy a solution, not a product. They want a platform, and they are ready to pay premium for having it, for getting rid of their pain." Taras Polischuk
