    About the Presenters

    John Doffing

    The founder of StartUpAgent, has extensive operational experience as an entrepreneur and marketing executive with multiple venture-funded technology companies. He has successfully recruited literally hundreds of candidates, and has worked with countless recruiters over the years. With few exceptions, John found traditional recruiting firms to be ill-suited to the demands of creating a viable startup company, so he founded his own! According to the Red Herring, 'every company needs a John Doffing' (for what we don't know!), and over the past two years, StartUpAgent has helped literally dozens of high-growth technology companies build their teams.
