When we started TopFunnel in 2017, we set out to tackle a challenging problem. We saw an explosion of employment opportunities, specifically in technology, and not enough talent to fill them. We first noticed the massive impact this had on the growth of companies in our home city, San Francisco. But as we grew globally, we saw the problem worldwide.
Building a qualified team is the single most critical factor in creating a successful business. We've seen great talent help many of our partners grow exponentially fast, and on the flip side, poor talent strategies lead to many shutting their doors. While we firmly believe TopFunnel is the best solution for organizations to scale, we also recognize that great talent acquisition starts way before recruiting: specifically with education.
To that end, in 2019, we've made a commitment to support providing education and learning opportunities for all. Equal access to a reliable education system will be vital to building the workforce of the future. As part of our commitment to the 1% Project, this year we're partnering with Uncommon Schools, a non-profit charter school system serving underrepresented districts on the East Coast. We hope you'll join us in supporting this effort.
