After securing an initial round of financing or even your Series A, you've clearly proven you can develop a product and/or service that appeals to a targeted consumer base.
 
Now, how can you build a quality C-level team to properly scale your product and business? Do you know what technology is needed to elevate your company and vision? Do you know how to effectively communicate your product value at the scale necessary to grow? Do you have the infrastructure to both attract and retain existing talent, and are you maintaining your financial documentation for investors and staying compliant?
 
Your options to answer these difficult questions can range from taking them on internally, getting formal/informal mentoring and advising, outsourcing to expert professionals or hiring someone full-time. So how do you determine the best option for each scenario? How will your investors feel if you decide to outsource and how do you assess the credibility of outside experts and advisors?
 
Join us to hear from a panel of seasoned professionals who work with technology startups to address these challenging questions every day. Hear case studies and stories of success and failure alike.
