Ask a VC: Staffing your Startup

As part of our Ask a VC blog series, we wanted to provide additional insight from the OUP investment team on how to staff your startup company. We spoke with Tech Partner Manny Stockman and Life Science Partner Anurag Agarwal to learn their perspectives on the first strategic business hire, how to incentivize and compensate employees at an early-stage startup, and where to find the right candidate for these roles.
