And what would you do if the stakes weren’t just the success of your company—but the distribution of a life-saving vaccine across the world?
If you’re like Angelo Stracquatanio—co-founder and CEO of Apprentice—you wouldn’t flinch. You’d be willing to rethink everything about how you find top talent and build your product.

In our first episode of Build Different—A.Team's new series about forward-thinking companies finding new and better ways to build—we explore the story of Angelo and Apprentice, a new software company that merged in 2020 to help companies produce critical drugs much faster and more efficiently than ever before.
