About the Conference

Pardon the Disruption!

Scout the Trailblazers of Recruiting

We’ve scoured tech startups, F1000 corporations, 3rd-party recruiters, and others to assemble recruiting pioneers in one place. These trailblazers will share recruiting ideas, approaches, and tools that are beyond fresh – they’re bold, unconventional, disruptive, and too new to be proven.

Innovators will win the war for talent and to innovate you need to be first.



Innovators Only: Startup Competition & More

Recruiting startups showcase their products and compete for a $10,000 prize


Startup Competition

Recruiting Innovation Summit attendees come to see what’s next in recruiting. New technologies. New Innovations. And to help shape these tools they will be using in the future.

The second annual ever start-up competition at the Recruiting Innovation Summit showcases new recruiting technologies from teams working to build the next innovation in recruiting that will disrupt the status quo. If you are creating what’s really next in recruiting technology, this competition is the one thing you can’t afford to miss. Your potential users will have the chance to meet you, get to ask you questions and help shape the next generation of recruiting technology.

Throughout the summit, we will showcase these new technologies — many of which aren’t available to the public — and live demo what they can do. From these demonstrations, our panel of judges will pick the most promising start-up to receive the $10,000 grand prize to be presented at the summit.
