I’ve dealt with lots of equity groups who only care about money, but Hastings cares about people. They understand that in order to catapult growth, you’ve got to retain good people and take excellent care of your team.
My partner and I were looking to get some backing for a data center business we were running and put together a plan for 6–8 people to get us to $1M revenue in the first year. Hastings sent a team up for a site visit and they really dug into what we were trying to accomplish. My partner and I felt empowered and excited after talking with them. All along the way, we had many open conversations, and felt included in all decisions. Eight months later, we were at 40+ people and $8M in revenue.
From beginning to end, the Hastings team put in the effort to really understand where I was coming from. They allowed me to share my technical knowledge, my industry experience and the relationships I’ve built over the years and added tremendous value by delivering powerful insights that enabled us to grow rapidly.
What sets Hastings apart is the level of respect and open communication built into their process. I’ve dealt with lots of equity groups who only care about money, but Hastings cares about people. They understand that in order to catapult growth, you must retain good people and take good care of your team.
