A Framework for Hiring a Great Team
By Get To Traction • Issue #12 • View online
I don’t have to tell you how much there is to do when launching a startup. It’s tempting to scramble to get a scrappy team up and going just to give yourself some breathing room. But the old adage, “Slow to hire, quick to fire” applies to new startups, too. The wrong co-founder or team member can at best cause you additional headaches, but at worst can take down your company. A simple brainstorming exercise to define responsibilities and ideal characteristics can go a long way.
PS - Don’t forget to head over to the Early Stage Startup Stack. It’s still a work in progress (let me know what info you’re looking for that I don’t have) but there’s currently 70+ additional links, all nicely categorized.
