As any successful entrepreneur worth their term sheet knows, in times of economic uncertainty, the one critical asset they need to maximize their startup’s chances of success is a cohesive core team with shared vision. But finding the right people to help your startup in the climb to the top can be tough. In addition, seeking an executive role & standing out in these trying times is especially challenging.
Join us for an often requested discussion as we explore:
* How to look for the best people
* What to look for: Identifyers around competency, compatibility, and compensation.
* Differentiating your company to attract top talent.
* How to approach back channel references.
* Differentiating yourself when positioning for a new role. Communicate your personal value proposition.
* Best practices
* And more! This is an interactive discussion so we encourage audience participants to bring questions.
