Why do careers in Upstate NY remain invisible?

2018 was the best year in living memory for VC-backed startups in Upstate NY. An increase in high-paying job opportunities is a reflection of this progress. Our partner Fast Tracking Solutions reviewed over 50 startup websites across the region. FTS found nearly 500 different positions available! The challenge? Despite recent progress, these careers remain invisible to local talent.

I had an eye-opening conversation last week with the CEO of a fast-growing company based in Upstate. He recently received over 400 applications for an open position in Denver, CO, while five similar postings for the Upstate office drew minimal interest.

Recruiting top tier talent is a necessity for fast growth. UVC will be exploring strategies for connecting local talent to our fast-growing companies throughout 2020. If you'd like to contribute a piece to this puzzle, send me an email. I'm sure it's been too long since we've last connected.

Best,

Nasir
