One of the biggest challenges founders face when they get their idea off the ground is what they need to do next to make it happen.

That’s what we recently explored in the Idea to Unicorn series presented by Startup Daily in partnership with Microsoft.

Over two days at Tank Stream Labs in the Sydney Startup Hub, we looked at the steps you need to take to get your startup up and running, from execution to hiring the right team and securing investments.

We spoke to founders, venture capitalists and others who work daily at the beginning of the life of startups in a series of panels, presentations and face-to-face conversations that we will share with Startup Daily readers over the next week.

This presentation, with Alex Hattingh, Chief People Officer at Employment here, explored how to build a superstar team by finding and retaining the best talent

We share the other five talks and presentations designed for early stage founders.
