As the world grows more connected -- sparking cross-pollination and accelerating idea-generation -- and the marketplace for funding becomes more streamlined -- thanks to plummeting capital requirements and the rise of accelerators -- talent has become the new bottleneck for society’s technological evolution. We simply don't have enough qualified people to build new technology and maintain existing technology. How bad is it? And how are we going to solve it? 10x Management brings the model of a Hollywood talent agency to Silicon Valley. Instead of movie stars, 10x represents top-notch freelance programmers and tech consultants, including core open source contributors and creators of mobile apps with millions of downloads. In this talk, 10x cofounder Altay Guvench will discuss the rapidly-changing marketplace for talent and the future of work.
