Younger ventures in various locations need access to capital and high quality c-level staff for a successful growth period. As such, it suits them to look for ways to make professional connections for the best long-term results, including putting the most fitting executives in key roles.
When the resources needed to expand a company aren't available in the home country, a winning strategy can be built on strong executive choices. Mashable recently spoke to Melanie Perkins of the Australian graphic design company Canva, who said that creating a strong team at her business has been key to gaining attention and fostering positive development.
While Perkins acknowledges the importance of earning proper funding for a venture, she encourages startups to think bigger and fill the business with worthy performers, no matter how long it takes to reach desired goals. Aggressively seeking out the sort of performers they admire is another essential part of searching for the right fit, not just the most convenient.
"We spent literally a year trying to find the right technical person to join us, and then it was a full year trying to find the right investors," she said, describing her own company's evolution. "It takes a very long time, so you absolutely need determination to see things through."
