Building the right team for a billion-dollar startup

Building the right team for a billion-dollar startup

Sarah Smith, managing director of Bain Capital Ventures, did something when it came to hiring, from building Facebook’s first office in Austin to putting together most of Quora’s team. In the early stages of TechCrunch, he talks about how early rents can be used to ensure that business growth is appropriate.

As an investor in Bain Capital Ventures, Smith has a broad understanding of the problems that companies are facing, as well as finding the right candidates for success. In our conversation, Smith clearly covered various issues such as who will be hired and when, when to shoot, and how to ensure diversity from day one.

When an organization is hiring its first – and then evolving into a larger company – the process and requirements may change, but the culture should be consistent from the start, according to Smith. From there the emphasis on good starting managers is critical. I would really encourage you to take some time to think about what kind of organization you want to create before you go out and start interviewing people.

 Therefore, it is really going to be about understanding and defining your culture. Then the second thing I know when I think of scaling from you is you know, up to five people, you know 50 and managers beyond that is really the key to your success as an organization. It is important to understand how important, great managers are for the success of your organization.

Therefore, we will talk a bit about how to think about it, because there are many questions around helping people improve management for the first time. You can manage people for the first time as a founder, so think about how to set up the company for success.
