Entrepreneurship Research Guide : Team

This guide is a collaborative effort between the Wisconsin School of Business and the Business Library.

One: Describe who you will need on your team and how it will work

  • Can the team execute the business idea you have?
  • How are decisions made?
  • Can the team pivot (change the business model) if necessary?

Two: Building a team

  • Build an advisory board you of people you can ask for insights and help on occasion.
  • Look to build a team of 3 to 5 people who have varying experience in industry and different training/skill sets to improve bandwidth. Who else needs to be hired?
  • Build a board of directors that can accelerate business development efforts, provide specialized knowledge (e.g. legal expertise), and more. Stay with odd #’s of people.
