Building a Fundable Team
It is an oft repeated truism that angels and venture capital firms invest in teams more than they invest in ideas and technologies. This roundtable will provide investors’ perspectives on this dilemma, along with a discussion of other team-related topics, such as:
- What is a founder’s role on the management team?
- Is the current team complete enough for the stage of the company?
- Does the current team need someone to play an interim role to fill in a critical need?
- At what stage of the company growth would it be appropriate to have a management reorg?
