With an aim to help early-stage startups grow, the February edition of Startup Saturday Mumbai will focus on building an 'A' team.
For most entrepreneurs, a major challenge is finding the right co-founder and the right founding team. This is extremely important in setting up the foundation for your startup and defining its organisational structure.
