Our Story

Teresa Murphey founded Hire Ventures in 2001 to provide early-stage tech ventures with expert-level HR and recruiting services when they need it most—and at a price they can afford—to enable them to grow and scale. Over the years, our Atlanta-based team has also grown, as we continue to partner with businesses throughout their incredible journeys—from first hires to tremendous exits.

Our team is here to help you simplify and optimize your HR processes while creating a company culture where employees thrive. We do this by leveraging our unique backgrounds from both agency and corporate environments in niche industries, as well as our expertise in state-of-the-art HR technology.

We look forward to meeting you, learning what’s important to your company and its culture, and helping you find and keep the talent that will set you apart.
