In today’s episode of Category Visionaries, we speak with Andres Blank, CEO of Fetcher, about his journey from Venezuela to America as a student, his lifelong love for tech solutions, and why he believes in the power of a few key interactions to change a person’s career. Through Fetcher’s automated recruitment search approach, everyone from mature enterprises to energetic startups can solve a key problem that all businesses face – getting the best people into the right positions.

By helping recruiters stick to what they know best by providing a user-ready solution for integrated search, selection and messaging of relevant talent, Fetcher is disrupting the recruitment space, not just tweaking search parameters. Simultaneously forging a new category in terms of staffing, Fetcher relies on referrals to grow its customer base, and looks set to expand significantly over the next few years, connecting many more people with the opportunities that mean the most to them.
