Your startup will always be judged by the quality of your team. Whether you’re speaking to a potential customer, investor or journalist, your operations and team will always be scrutinized in great detail. And quite rightly – getting the dynamics of your team right can be the difference between exponential growth…. or none at all.
Further, the design of your equity scheme will impact on most of the important decisions you’ll make in your company. It’s vital to get this right or you could pay the price if one of your team decides to leave or when you exit the business.
We realise the options for building your team are multiple and each comes with its costs and benefits. To help you make sense of the best options when you start building your team, or review your current situation, we’re putting together a Masterclass aimed at anyone that’s ever going to have to hire anybody.[reveal title="What you will learn?" ][list style="orb" color="grey"]
