About Max Shapiro

I founded PeopleConnect in 2000 to help early-stage high-tech companies find the talent they need to succeed. Our clients are in technology, biotech, cleantech, apps, services, medical devices, and consumer products.

Our team of outstanding recruiters finds C-level executives, talented managers and experienced leaders who will bring our client companies to the next level. We provide traditional contingency searches as well as our one-of-a-kind Employees Without Paychecks program, which I created after the dotcom bust to help promising companies find top-level talent willing to work for equity only until the company gets their funding.

Other ongoing projects I’m involved in that also support the startup community:

● Active angel investor and member of Keiretsu Forum since 2001

● Member of Silicom Ventures

● Co-founder of Runway Incubator

● Producer of three monthly pitch events: PitchForce, San Francisco ElevatorPitch, and Silicon Valley ElevatorPitch

As you can tell by the name of my company, I like to connect people, so please let me know if there is anything I can do for you or information I can share.
