When we decided to hire talented individuals from outside of our affiliations, we decided to ask Shimamoto Partners for the search. We chose Shimamoto Partners because the company had in-depth knowledge of venture capital business, and we also felt confident in establishing trusting relationship with Shimamoto Partners. The followings are our experiences and impressions of the company after successful search
projects conducted by Shimamoto Partners:
1.Members of Shimamoto Partners knew financial and venture capital market and its trend very well and they made us feel very comfortable consulting with them
2.They always provided us proper advise from the management's point of view and suggestions on search universe to obtain strong candidates
3.Their advice came from a global view point; their knowledge in venture capital and high-tech industries in US and discussion on overall trend and movement of the Japanese economy (industry and human resources) were articulate and valuable
Shimamoto Partners took their time to conduct thorough search and offered the best service possible by searching candidates from a wide range of search universe, assisting us with interviews, and supporting us even on the details throughout the interview process. We feel that such detailed service is a unique feature of Shimamoto Partners. The person who joined our firm is doing very well; he became a changing agent to our firm and the ambiance of the firm changed for the better after he joined. We were previously rather reluctant to recruit employees from outside of our affiliated companies but since he came on board, we have hired a few more middle-tier employees from outside. We would like to work with Shimamoto Partners again whenever we come across the need for professional search assistance in the future.
