Talent is evenly distributed; opportunity is not. Jumpstart is breaking down barriers by enabling any company to hire early-career talent anywhere. When We First Met The first time we met Ben, we didn’t even talk about Jumpstart — we were too enthralled by his life story. But then our human capital team started raving about a powerful new college recruiting platform and we arranged a meeting. It was only then that we realized the same guy was behind Jumpstart’s 15-person team. Ben grew up in London, dropped out of high school, became a recruiter and was running his own agency by the time he was 21. A natural-born talent scout, he realized that there must be a better way to match great companies with great people and started Jumpstart. Jumpstart’s signup process is intentionally long because we recognize that people are more than a collection of bullet points on a resume. We partnered with Ben because we are excited to build a platform for people to start their careers.
