Always be recruiting

I was recently speaking with the co-founder of a successful regional tech business. We’re not investors in the company, and the co-founder was looking for insights into the Turkish market.

In the middle of the discussion, I was caught by surprise when the co-founder asked whether I’d like to join the company. This is the first time that I’ve been on the receiving end of a startup co-founder offering an investor a job.

I like investing too much to make the shift, so I politely declined.

However, the anecdote is a great reminder that great founders are always recruiting.
