Description

Join us for an intimate conversation with Isaac Oates, Founder & CEO of Justworks.

Justworks helps small business entrepreneurs get access to large company benefits, letting them provide the care their team deserves and compete for top talent. Their fast and easy to use HR platform has been a favorite for startups, getting great reviews from their users.

Isaac founded Justworks in 2012, and since then they've raised over $50 million in venture funding from investors including Redpoint Capital, Index Ventures, and Thrive Capital.

Prior to Justworks, Isaac was an Amazon software engineer until he left in 2008 and launched his own startup called Adtuitive, a contextual advertising platform. In 2009, Adtuitive was acquired by Etsy, where Isaac designed, built, and launched the company's payment processing platform.

Isaac's experience launching Adtuitive is what gave him the idea to start Justworks, noticing how difficult and complicated it was to set up health care for his employees. He set out to launch an HR platform that would be simple and easy to use, so entrepreneurs can focus on building their businesses.

Justworks has been named one of the best small & medium workplaces by FORTUNE and Great Place to Work, and Isaac was named a Glassdoor Highest Rated CEO in 2016.

We're excited to speak with the founder of one of New York's hottest startups! We'll discuss his entrepreneurial journey, and find the lessons and insights you can carry into your business.
