While these entrepreneurs focus on identifying markets, building products and raising capital, TriNet successfully assumes responsibility for all aspects of human resources including great benefits, world-class technology, hiring of exceptional talent, HR law and regulation compliance. I am passionate about helping entrepreneurs realize their ambitions!”
Other finalists include Dave Duffield, co-founder and co-CEO of Workday, Rich Ellson, co-founder of Labcyte, Inc., Lyndon Rive, CEO and co-founder of SolarCity and Gurbaksh Chahal, CEO and Founder of RadiumOne.
