  • @AshishShah23 You make two important points - let me try to address them one at a time

    >> from future employee's point of view, more attractive to have
    >> big company name's in the CV rather than start ups!

    This unfortunately is still true for vast majority of first time job seekers and nothing wrong with it. They are simply the WRONG target for your startup. You want folks, who'd rather be at a startup - and there are each day more of them luckily - than show up because they could not get another job. And many big companies will find you easier to hire, if you've worked at a startup - named or nameless, if you can demonstrate the skills you've picked up - which you will faster in a startup.

    >> Start up challange is getting first staff (as u r new company with no set
    >> processes/systems in place or not many, if at all staff working for you)

    You are absolutely right. This is the issues I've tried to address in my presentation - even before you get the first (new) hire on board, you need to get some partners on board - so there are people to share the challenge with you. And yes, it is hard to get that first employee -- we've been interviewed by the candidate's parents on more than one occasion while trying to hire our first team member. As I said, you are embarking on a mission - a quest and you are looking for people to join that. You are going to have to kiss a lot of frogs before you find your prince. But that's what makes the whole thing fun, even if a little frustrating at times.

  • Good but perhaps does not address some aspects of start up. One of the example:



    Start up challange is getting first staff (as u r new company with no set processes/systems in place or not many, if at all staff working for you) compared to established companies with lots of support, this is more relevant in skill shortage market.



    Also, from future emplyee's point of view, more attractive to have big company name's in the CV rather than start ups!
