A Culture Story...
We had this ambitious goal of serving our community through engaging events, resources, & consulting, to guide and to connect them to corporate companies. By November, we established a recruiting business model and formed ETA TALENT, LLC, venturing into Executive Talent Acquisition.
ETA Talent Launch Event
This was our first event and our goal was to create a fun, diverse, inclusive, and unique event we would be proud of. It wasn’t your traditional corporate event. We had one of the most influential DJs in Dallas at our event, photo booths, drinks, small activations, and games. Most importantly, we introduced the idea of cognitive diversity and inclusion to a city at that time was “dead last in economic inclusivity”
The Dots Began Connecting
During an engaging networking experience we had for corporate candidates, we began to realize that pay, location, and job responsibilities weren’t what kept employees engaged at the organization - it was the culture of the organization and experiences.
Pivot But Don’t Lose Sight of the Vision
Recruiting talent wasn’t fulfilling for us. For most of the candidates we were recruiting for and spoke to, engagement, culture, and sense of belonging were lacking in the workplace. Another light bulb goes off.
ETA BOLT is Born
Attempting our bring our vision of creating more inclusion inside corporate companies to life, we started working with creatives to bring the value of culture and diversity into the community.
BOLT’s First Corporate Partnership & Community Initiative
Microsoft has a passion for helping the community, in which we live and work, and we share this passion. It was a synergistic partnership because our goal is to bridge the gap between corporate and culture. In working with Microsoft, we were able to conclude on what worked and what didn’t. Working with Microsoft gave us insight into data we needed to build our electric platform that quantified the impact of engaging the community and integrating it in corporations.

How to Market Yourself As A Creative in Corporate
We partnered with Microsoft in Los Angeles to host an event that would empower creatives in the community to embrace cognitive diversity in the corporate space. This is when we clearly saw the impact and importance of inclusion in the workplace. Read more about our partnership with Microsoft.
Due to COVID-19...
Our next event into the corporate space would’ve been with Google. However, COVID-19 took us all by surprise and halted our partnership with them. We took a step back in looking at how we translate the connectivity in communities into a virtual world, much like everyone else. Enter our Electric Platform powered by AI...
