How was the Startup Fair experience for recruiters?
"With our fearless companion Pixel by our side, the Moat recruiting team waded through endless foot traffic and high-level discussions with quality coders at the Cornell Startup Fair. When the dust settled, our resume stack looked more like a book!" Elliot Kulakow, Data Scientist, MOAT
"The Startup Fair was a tremendous opportunity for us to validate what we're doing as a very new company. Seeing our ideas resonate with young people and get them excited helped confirm we're on the right track." Foster Sayers, CEO, AgileQR, Inc.
"The Cornell Startup Career Fair was a great way to connect with very high quality candidates who are super passionate about startups in NYC. These are people who would have gone to the valley only a few years ago, now they are all coming to New York. I'll continue recruiting [at Cornell] as was super impressed with the quality of the team organizing the event." Dan Storms, Head of Engineering, Red Rover
