Goldstone Partners was launched in 2007 in the middle of the Great Recession. You might think that was a challenging time to start a company, but it actually set the course for an innovative business model. During that period there was no shortage of qualified professionals in the market, and although the capital markets were sinking, startups who already had funding were still forging ahead.  In fact, early stage companies grew at a record pace during the latter part of the last decade. As a result, we built Goldstone Partners around startups and emerging growth companies to help the incredible entrepreneurs behind the innovation build their teams. We’ve also spent time assisting hundreds of unemployed professionals get their careers back on track and get back to work. Since then, Goldstone Partners has continued to grow, and is a reflection of this team’s dedication to helping others and giving back to the community.
