For which tasks should a start-up hire online freelancers? How to do it right?

  • December 30, 2013 · 6:00 PM

Start-ups are usually dealing with the need to develop a product very rapidly, and are often restricted to a very tight budget. Should they hire team members as full-time employees / co-founders or is it better to hire online freelancers "per task"?

The answer is (as usual): "IT DEPENDS".

Depends on what?

This is what we will discuss in this meetup.

Here are some of the topics we will cover:

- How to map your startup's strategic knowledge and how to make sure it's preserved and nurtured 

- What are the tasks and roles that are most effectively managed by using online freelancers

- What are the pros and cons of hiring online

- How to do it successfully (we'll review case studies and talk to people who have a lot of experience in doing this).

If you have specific questions that you would like me to cover in this meetup, please send them to me in advance.

Looking forwards to seeing you at the meetup,
