Arjun Kapur, a graduate of Johns Hopkins and Stanford Universities, founded GoBuyside. In a recent interview with Interview.net He amplified on GoBuyside’s desire to create winning situations for both its clients and the firm’s discovered candidates. When asked how he got the idea to start this business, he cited his perception that there was a “Noticeable lack of transparency and an abundance of asymmetric information” in the financial recruitment arena. He visualized the “Idea of a tech-enabled platform that could have a competitive advantage over the traditional hiring model”. He indicated that the favorite thing about his role is the collaborative aspect, a quality that permeates his firm’s culture. He recommends “Zero to One” by Peter Thiel as a book that offers stimulating insight to entrepreneurial start-up ventures.
