At RRE Ventures, an early stage venture capital firm in New York City, our founding teams always tell us that Talent is one of their biggest challenges. While it's gotten easier and less costly to start companies in the last few decades, getting the right team is still a major challenge and yet is a core differentiator for your company.
Given that Hiring and Talent can often seem unapproachable and complicated, we put this Talent Playbook together as a starting point to cover some of the fundamentals. We interviewed Heads of Talent in our network to highlight a few best practices. This also includes an excel template to get you started on hiring when you aren't at a point to invest in more sophisticated systems yet.
