      Hi Andy, does Wayra prefer any particular team size, what would be too big or too small?

      September 24, 2013

    • Andy D.

      In our current batch, we've got teams that joined with just one founder, and one team that joined with 26 members (most part time). So the team size isn't necessarily important.

      September 24, 2013

  • Andy D.

    Wayra just opened its new call for startups. Defo worth considering: uk.wayra.org
