Tips to Survive The Biggest Talent Shortage in History in 2023

The United Nations expects the US. to have 95 million fewer people in the labor force by 2050. Europe will be 44 million people short, while facing an economic recession.

Founders and managers in the United States and Europe have faced a similar challenge when trying to scale their teams: the lack of qualified tech professionals. This issue affects most companies and makes it even harder for tech startups trying to get off the ground.

Startups and team heads choose to face this challenge in different ways: some hire talents for transferable skills rather than job-specific skills, others invest in upskilling their current employees, but more and more fast-growing startups are looking beyond their own boards to solve the talent shortage.
