Non-Traditional Team Building (Contractors and Offshore and Husbands - Oh My!)

There comes a time in every business (sometimes it's at the start!) when you realize you can NOT do everything yourself. You need a team. In today's world, many businesses are not built on the traditional employer/employee model. Serial entrepreneur Vlada Bortnik joins us to share the ins and outs of building a non-traditional team structure. Kids welcome.

 

More about Vlada:

Vlada co-founded Joya (www.getjoya.com), an iPhone app that makes it delightful and easy to share mobile videos. Previously, she co-founded and sold AdNectar, a VC-backed ad tech company.

Vlada has a double major in computer engineering and art from Northwestern University, as well as 10+ years of professional experience as product manager, designer and entrepreneur, building mass-impact products including MSN Messenger and Hotmail.

Vlada is also a proud Mom of two little girls who are the inspiration behind Joya. They pushed Vlada to dream about making staying in touch with family feel magically effortless, and so Joya was born.
