WE ACCELERATE SOLUTIONS THAT DRIVE THE FUTURE OF WORK

PeopleTech Partners is a network of business leaders investing time in People Tech

What is PeopleTech?

 People Technology is the full range of software platforms and services that enable organizations to support the talent that drives success.

It’s critical for founders to have a partnership with people who represent the customers they want to serve. Our advisors have deep experience as decision makers who purchase PeopleTech: we share insights and give feedback at the right time to fuel success.

Insight

PeopleTechPartners helps emerging companies understand key operational problems by providing insight into the most pressing issues faced by organizations.

Feedback

Our people leaders provide key feedback on product features, organizational plans and market strategy. We act as integral advisors on all aspects of business for our founding teams to further their vision and ensure rapid customer acquisition.

Evangelism

As our companies engage the market, we provide evangelism for their products. We spread the word within our extensive networks, participate in beta launches and become public advocates for solutions that transform the PeopleTech space.

Success

When founding teams get the right information early on to inform their product strategy, their trajectory accelerates and their companies thrive. We help ensure the success of the next generation of PeopleTech that will transform the future of work.

TESTIMONIALS

PeopleTech Partners has been a formative part of our journey at Bravely. The program itself put our customer and product development trajectory on steroids at exactly the right time, and over the years our relationships with PTP advisors and fellow portfolio company founders have given us a front row seat to some of the best minds shaping the future of work. We likely wouldn’t be where we are today without PTP in our corner.

Toby Hervey

CEO & Founder of Bravely

The PeopleTech Growth Program supercharged our growth at Terminal – we were able to meet with over 40 Talent, HR, and People leaders in weeks – their feedback and support has been instrumental in fulfilling our mission to help growing companies develop and implement their remote workforce strategies. 

Clay Kellogg

Founder of Terminal

On behalf of team Hoppin, THANK YOU for an incredible experience! Wow, it was intense but we met so many fantastic people and got SO much out of it! Thank you and the whole PTP team for all the hard work in setting everything up!

Bilyana Freye

Founder of Hoppin
