Building a Winning Team

Sam Hodges /Dec, 2020


Building a Winning Team Being able to build your startup team takes a lot of work- as pay alone does not attract nor retain your company’s best talent. Regardless of how great your product is, building a strong team is your stepping stones to success as you look to reach your scalable goals. Our speaker will take you on an interactive discussion on real life lessons learned and share strategies for building your own ‘A’ team!

Not an early-stage founder? That’s okay, too. Later-stage founders, investors, or startup enthusiasts are also welcome to attend. There is a limited amount of space available, so get your tickets early to secure your virtual seat!
