PeopleConnect is an executive search firm which finds, screens, and recruits for high tech, biotech, health care, and scientific hiring needs. Clients are innovative startups, early stage ventures, and companies in expansion or turnaround mode -- building their names in e-commerce, digital advertising, Web 2.0 and 3.0, biotech, green energy, software, electronics, scientific, wireless, telecommunications, and emerging technologies.

In addition to full-time placement for companies that need to scale quickly, PeopleConnect includes traditional full-time hire options and Outsourced Solutions for companies who need to hire a lot of people in a short period of time.

But its true Silicon Valley colors are shown by its pioneering Employees Without Paychecks program. After the dotcom bubble burst in the the early 2000s. CEO and founder Max Shapiro saw companies that needed employees but didn't have cash, and unemployed tech veterans who wanted to work and didn't need a paycheck right away. Out of this grew the Employees Without Paychecks program, which places entrepreneurial executives with pre-funded startups on an equity basis.
