Forming a start-up is an incredible challenge, and one of the toughest tasks is assembling the team that will make it succeed. The reason? A fledgling business needs to balance two factors: 1) They don’t have a lot of money, and yet… 2) They need exceptional, diverse talent.
A team member in a start-up can’t be an “employee.” It just doesn’t work. It’s because every person who is drawing a paycheck must be able to make decisions on the fly, change gears quickly, and wear many different hats. It’s never a simple matter of “clocking in and doing your job,” because your job encompasses every aspect of the company’s growth and success.
That means the ideal start-up team member has a multitude of skills beyond their specialty, and soft skills in communication and leadership that allow them to function in a variety of capacities. Most importantly, the ideal candidate has an entrepreneur’s spirit: drive, passion, commitment, and the willingness to devote more than 40 hours a week to something bigger than a career.
