We’re not ones to argue with people as successful in our startup ecosystem as Paul Graham, but... he is right.
Great startups need superb people to make them amazing scalable, successful and sustainable companies.
This is what we do….
Our Directors have helped build out some of Europe’s most successful tech startups. Companies like Transferwise, FarFetch, Secret Escapes, NewVoiceMedia, Wahanda, Auto1 and Klarna to name but a few. Yes these businesses had great product in a great market but critically they also hired great people to execute. They put this at their core.
Don’t take a chance… control the biggest variable that you’ll have... your people.
