Poaching. No, we’re not talking ivory tusks or leopard skin rugs. We’re talking people. Specifically, engineers. Google, Facebook, Twitter, Apple—they’re all after the best of the best in the industry. And so are the startups.

Hiring a great team is the #1 most important thing you’ll ever do for your company. Are you ready? Do you know where to find amazing co-founders or how to lure away those rock star MIT computer science majors who were just offered $300,000 to work for Google?

If not, you’d best take a look at our online course: “Attracting, Hiring, and Retaining the Best People”. To quote one of the students: “Probably the best advice on hiring that I’ve ever received.”
