Already working on that. I’ve programmed and built the software from the ground up. I am just looking for someone to handle the business development and sales side. I will take your suggestions and try to be more active in my area. Thanks.
Seems that sales & business management is more difficult than even recruiting your development team - because these are the kind of people who want to get paid today, not in the ‘near future’.
Not saying they aren’t out there, but you are going to have to either have a really spectactular product or a very close relationship in order to get them excited about working with you. Plus, any smart partner at this stage would want a good chunk of equity.
Of course, there is always more than 1 way to skin a cat so goodluck in your quest to build a team.
Definitely want to read this one, thanks for the headsup.
If its programming, then user groups, university clubs or conferences might be the way to go
If its business management, innovation clubs or angel investor meetings would be worth a look
sales? try a few sellers conferences?
watch the apprentice on TV and look at the sort of qualities of people that are on the show, look at their previous jobs and target those areas.
Ideally you will need to resign the fact that any partnership you make will be rocky to start with and also take time to develop. Make sure you cover your butt and get NDAs, contracts or other documentation drawn up to protect your concept.
