If you had to make a list of the toughest things to do while building and scaling a startup, without doubt, hiring would feature among the top three challenges. One of the best ways to deal with this challenge is to hire in-house recruiters. Not only will they bring their expertise to the table enabling you to attract A-talent but also likely to help reduce your time and cost to hire, especially if you’re in the growth stages. 

Sourabh Agarwal, co-founder and CTO of Hevo Data, a Bangalore-based SaaS startup, will talk about how an in-house recruiting team helped them scale their company and hit milestones faster than otherwise.
