Core Conversation: Start-up Management 2.0 - Keeping Teams Motivated, Productive, Happy

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

With the likes of Google, Facebook and Yahoo! throwing wads of money, stock options and free snacks at the top talent, how do we, as start-ups, attract and retain great team members? Once we have a great team, how do we keep its members highly productive, creative and, most of all, happy? In this discussion, Dogster/Catster co-founders John Vars and Steven Reading will discuss some of the mistakes and successes in building their team. The conversation will touch on hiring and firing, what a start-up can offer that the Googles of the world cannot, communication hits and misses, motivating different people to reach the same team goals, why happiness counts and how office space can make a huge difference. This should be a conversation above all, so bring both your own experience and your questions.
