The ability to put together a great team, starting from your co-founder and the founding team, to scaling it up to 100s or 1000s of employees is not an easy task. Great founders have always been able to inspire, lead, and build the vision along with the team.
It is said that investors value the team above the product at hand, but what does a valuable team look like?
It is better to have a team of B players that work together than a dysfunctional team of A players.How do you hire your initial team for the idea?
What are the different ways you can pay your 1st, 2nd, and 3rd employee of the startup.
How do you allocate stocks to your employees when are forming a startup.
What does a great early stage startup look like.
Should you hire employees fresh out of college or seasoned professionals?
How do you formally structure an agreement with your co-founder?
You have an idea and can't code, but that need not be the end of it. So how do you put together a team to help you build the vision?
Most exceptional people don't work for the money, but for the vision,challenges, and culture. How do you give your early team that experience?
