Raymond To - Co-Founder, GO Recruitment

Raymond To, B.Sc, MBA, CPA CMA is an award-winning Recruiter, HR advisor and angel investor of 26 years. As the Founder and managing partner of Go Recruitment and Go Futures HR, he and his gender diverse team have helped scale many tech companies here in Vancouver. Throughout his career, he has invested in many start-ups with modest success with the acquisitions of Mobidia by App Annie and In Motion Technologies by Sierra Wireless as the 2 he is most notable for. Currently, he is an investor of LifeBooster and Inetco. Throughout his career, he has been a big supporter of social enterprises via Social Venture Partners and also been hands-on helping organizations like Dress for Success and the Equity Giving Committee of Science World. The topic of Gender Diversity is near and dear to his heart having been mentored by a strong and accomplished female Manager when he started in recruiting. Today, he thinks opportunities for gender diversity are enormous as he sees his daughter enter the STEM industry as a Research Scientist for Abcellera but he sees diversity still as a work in progress. He is currently building a start-up that he hopes will replace the need for recruiters using a blend of digital and “organic” assessments for talent.
