Another factor that should influence your team selection is the market you are playing in or you intend to play in.
Is your venture a market interfacing venture?
Which market are you playing/do you intend to play in?
Which segment of the market do you intend to play in?
Does the candidate understand that market segment?
Does he have any experience in that market?
Who are the major players in that market?
Does he know about these other players in the market?
Does he know the rules and regulations of the market?
Where is the market located? It could be physical location or online? Does he have easy access to the market?
Is the market regulated? Does he have the qualifications to be a player according to the regulatory body?
These are some of the questions that must be answered before you settle for a team member.
We will continue with the other factors tomorrow.
God bless us all.
