Building the right team is definitely one of the most important factors towards scaling a successful startup but having the right ecosystem is just as crucial. What does that mean to you? Well, it means that you must take away all of the things that are coming in the way of your employees, their work etc. Are they going out to get coffee a few blocks away or grab a snack because they are hungry? Why not offer free coffee and snacks in the office as an option?
Making small steps towards making your employees’ lives easier will take your startup much farther. It is very similar to the saying, “treat others the way you want to be treated”. Right? So make small efforts such as offering snacks, perhaps vacation days, coffee etc. so that your startup is known for being friendly and open to the needs of the people working there. Wouldn’t you like to work for such as company that values your needs?
Although making such changes may not have a major impact on making a startup more appealing to an investor, it will make it more appealing to great talent looking for appreciation. As a result, better talent means better productivity and product or service that you startup offers (at which point it does affect the investor does care).
Personal hint of the INISMO founders: Creating a pleasant and supporting working environment will attract better talent and help build a successful team. There may only be a few minor issues that make a huge difference when it comes to chosing a working environment for a prospective employee. Younger individuals want to work in fun and entertaining environment while others may want have families with different needs or wants.
