Tech Co-Founder and Business Consultant
I'd like to get people's opinion on how and where I can go about finding guns-for-hire that are experts in their field -- think: internal auditors, HR administrators, payroll accountants, network security experts, etc. etc. etc. People that want to get out of the dollars-for-hours grind and form a startup partnership.
Ideally the first 5-10 customers should come from these people, and those customers should be decently sized firms.
The thesis is you solve customers' problems with customized productivity software (this is the startup bit), but are initially introduced to these customers through a hands-on temporary services agreement (hence the need for domain expertise).
Let me know what you think. All ideas and any intros welcome. Thanks.
