Event Details

Determining the right key team members can be a tough decision for startup founders. We will hear from two startup founders who are trying to decide on the right next hires. 

We will be looking at issues that include:

  • How do I prioritize particular skills? Right now I’m doing all of these things, which should I be looking to take off my plate?
  • How important is it to get pedigree for the next investment round?
  • How do you bring on someone who is above an existing early employee?
  • Of course, we will never know what we will hear about because it’s going to depend on where the conversation goes. This is an experience and learning that you really won’t get anywhere else.
