It is almost impossible to build highly successful business individually. In case of a start-up company, its founding team is the factor that can make or break the company. This training fiche provides basic principles and advice to getting the right people on board.
When weighing up the decision to start a company you need to carefully consider your resources. Number one resource that comes to mind immediately when discussing resources are money. When you have a great idea and you want to build a company, money probably is not the scarcest resource. What is scarce though are highly skilled people willing to work with you for your company. In this fiche we want to shift your attention from building the best product to the people that will help you build it and scale it. Company is a group of people working toward a shared goal (Blau & Scott, 1962). As a leader of a new venture it is your task to find, select, hire and motivate the best people that will help you attain your goal. In this fiche we focus on the founding team.
