In my reading (read Peter Thiel's new book Zero to One - about the sales process), discussions with investors (many of my friends are now investors) and tech entrepreneurs I've found only two positions that this group wants to talk about (I'm highlighting these peers as they have to be laser focused on hiring and staffing plans - limited dollars to throw around):
- Product engineers - do you have them on your team?
- Those that build great products with a passion!
- Those that sell your product, and effectively lead your biz dev (sometimes marketing) operations
This entire post was inspired by this Wall Street Journal article today! A very important read for you today!
