Interviews and Recruiting for Startups

Matt Bradley,'s unstoppable Jedi Knight Sales Ninja, and I were chatting today about the dearth of conversation taking place about hiring and interviewing in start-ups.

We all know that one of the most important elements of a successful start-up is the team. The best entrepreneurs surround themselves with people that are smarter than they are. Every text book in every b-school in the country addresses the importance of getting "A players" on your team, but rarely do you find practical advice about how to find them and how to interview them.

Josh James shared some valuable "Hire slow, fire fast" advice at a MWCN luncheon I attended, and Paul Allen has some creative ideas as well. The daily newsletter has some great tips too.

Do you have any hiring/team building tips for entrepreneurs? What's the best interview question you've asked/been asked?
