02aug8:30 am6:00 pmStackSummit: Build The Team


Event Details


Building a strong team is both the most challenging aspect of growing a company and the most important job of a founder. The ability to find, attract and hire the right talent is the key to building a great company.

And as you grow your company from 1 employee to 10, to 30, to 100+, what happens to your startup team? Your culture? How do you manage and lead your growing team? As an early-stage startup with limited resources, how do you hire the right people for your company?

We’re prepared to answer these questions and more at StackSummit: Build The Team hosted by Stacklist and Greenhouse.

Together with Greenhouse, we’re providing a full day of panels and lessons that will equip you with the best tips, tactics, and tools to build a startup team. You’ll hear from founders and experts from some of the most successful companies in New York that have grown teams from 1 to 100+.
