Peter's most recent post outlines how StaaSFund only invests in community members, as RELATIONSHIPS > RESUMES.
It seems that ALL companies, large and small, can greatly benefit from more human practices of hiring and ensuring teams/startups have the best people to do the job.
You’ll find every single role necessary for your startup to succeed WITHIN the community surrounding your market. You can find co-founders, leadership, engineers, designers, sales, marketing, financial, legal, and more. You can find everyone you need. By creating content, you’re telling the world about what you’re doing. If you’re savvy and humble, you can even ask for help.
What you’ll find is that you never really cared about a resume.
What you’ll find is that all you really needed was a (relationship) with someone who cares enough about you and what you’re doing to help you build your dreams. They found you online. You engaged them. You grew a relationship (and it doesn’t need to take years, a couple months will do). If it’s a technical role, ensure you get enough evidence of their delivery. If it’s design, make sure you get the entire portfolio. If it’s leadership, make sure you problem solve with them (now). This will tell you a lot about how they think, how they operate, and if their brain is the brain you need.
Even corporations can create interview/hiring/on-boarding processes that are more 'human.' We need that in our digital/zoom/teams world, now more than ever.
