Passionate about open innovation and employer branding, Aurelie Wen is the Managing Director of North America at Agorize. In 2017, Aurelie moved from Paris to Montreal and founded the North American office of Agorize, a platform that connects students, programmers, startups and entrepreneurs with companies worldwide.

“Large communities and potential clients are interested in the value of our community, first, but also in the platform itself. From all the platforms that exist in the country, there is no such platform that can manage a hackathon online as well as our platform.”

Specializing in innovation, recruitment and communication, Aurelie and her team have helped more than 60,000 students and innovators launch their startup and find jobs at companies which include TD National Bank of Canada, Desjardins, Aviva, Radio-Canada, L’Oreal, PepsiCo and more.

In this week’s show, Rivers talks to Aurelie about the future of work, recruitment in startups, and lessons in starting and scaling up.
