‘What We Learned in the Valley’ Part 1 – Building Successful Teams – C100

From December 2-4, TitanFile got the opportunity to go to a program run by the wonderful C100 group called 48 Hours in the Valley. Here, we got the chance to take part in multiple seminars chock-full of advice for start-ups that want to make it big.

Unsurprisingly, it all starts from the hiring process. Her advice to us was:

As a CEO, only hire ‘A’s; don’t hire ‘B’s or ‘C’s.
