Who I am

annaott

I have been working in HR for the past 18 years now, having started my career as a practitioner and was luckily “socialized” in digital companies, esp. startups. Over the years, I started to help entrepreneurs in HR Tech companies build exciting products, engage with clients, and meet investors. I also try to infuse as many HR practitioners as possible with technology, the future of work, and what a digitized HR function could look like. Being at the intersection of founders and clients, I also work with investors interested in HR Tech, esp. early stage/seed in Europe.

I am at the interface of HR Tech startups, HR practitioners, and investors.
