Are you struggling to build a founding team for your business? Bronwen Kasper’s of ‘Trumpet Page’ sat down with John Hagerty, Joven Demonteverde and Sukesh Ned of the Be Business ‘Ask the Strategist’ team to discuss how to do so.

Background to Bronwen’s question:

  • ‘Trumpet Page’ is an online platform where people can create an interactive and visual resume
  • It’s a similar concept to LinkedIn but ‘Trumpet page’ has themes and writing support
  • The whole idea behind it is to use it as a marketing tool when you promote yourself for work
  • Bronwyn doesn’t have a strong technical background, so she’s unsure about whether or not the people she should look for should have those qualifications or if they would be the right combination

Bronwen Kaspers of ‘Trumpet Page’ wants to build a founding team but she’s not sure about the type of people she should be looking for. John, Joven and Sukesh provide her with the right strategic advice that will allow her to build a founding team, successfully with the right combination of people.

Different discussion topics included:

  • Hiring
  • Investors/Angel Investors
  • Business Development
  • Co-founders

After John, Joven and Sukesh provided her with the right strategic advice, Bronwen was very pleased with their responses and when asked if her question was answered she replied by stating “yes you have, thank you.”
