Megan O’Connor, the Chief Growth Officer for Human Ventures, joined Cheddar to talk about her startup studio based in New York that helps develop early-stage entrepreneurs. O’Connor said when analyzing partnerships, startup founders should focus on their network to find the best talent to determine how to grow their company organically. “Nobody can have a startup in a microcosm,” she said on Thursday. “It takes a village for a startup to succeed.” Currently, Human Ventures has six companies in its portfolio including Reserve, which is an platform that allows users to book a table at some of the most exclusive restaurants in Manhattan.
