This presentation was originally created to address portfolio company executives from the 18 top VCs in Silicon Valley that Swing is partnered with. They'd asked us to come up with an educational piece that would help young company executives understand the different strategies for recruiting and retaining the best in design and development talent. In this presentation, I will discuss the tradeoffs of each path to product, from hiring internally to using contractors, both nearshore and offshore. We'll talk about strategies and tactics for each of the avenues, and what we've seen work well, and otherwise. This is an objective lecture that presents the different situations that hit young companies, and, leveraging my/our experience with early stage companies, it highlights various solutions and approaches to these issues that all startups and growing companies inevitably face.
