Fred Wilson, a venture capitalist, has a very smart point of view about talent. Quite often, information about selection and engagement is written for established organizations with a recruiting and HR team. For startups and small businesses the need for hiring and retaining the right people is even more critical. This is true not only because with a small number of employees any wrong hire could be a setback, but also because in small companies there is usually no one with recruiting or employee relations experience. Entrepreneurs have a keen vision of the culture they want to build, but stumble when beginning with the task of building it.
