IronCEO RapidFire: Juan Luis Betancourt; CEO, Humantelligence
One of the biggest challenges for the CEO of a startup is how to hire talent and fill out your team.
Listen to the interesting story of Juan Luis Betancourt. Juan worked for the top executive recruiting companies in the world before becoming CEO of Humantelligence Inc.
He talks about the challenge and difference in recruiting for his former clients, typically large corporations, to hiring for his startup.
“Instead of hiring more people like the original team and me, I did not want to fall into the trap that most CEOs of startups fall into, which is they keep hiring more of the same. So they never go from the startup phase to a phase of scaling. Going from $0m to $1m is a different team and company culture than $1m to $10m.”
Each week, on the IronCEO RapidFire, I will try to find out what makes the entrepreneur tick and try to get you to sit in their seat.
