How to Add Value to Your Startup, One New-Hire at a Time, by Yossi Hasson

Posted by Jonathan Greechan on 2014-01-10

Inside FI gives you exclusive access inside the training sessions of the Founder Institute. To get updates when we release new videos, follow us on Twitter or subscribe to our weekly newsletter here.

In this talk from the Johannesburg Founder Institute, Yossi Hasson shares his experience launching SYNAQ, a leading cloud-based messaging services leader in South Africa. Hasson says, “be creative about how you tackle a problem - you don’t have to use orthodox ways.”

Yossi Hasson is the Co-founder and CEO of SYNAQ. Prior to SYNAQ, Yossi held positions at Digital Connect, Digital Solutions Group, and Habonim Dror Southern Africa.

Hasson attributes his early-stage success to serious bootstrapping and a savvy hiring plan. “Skill sets aside, you’ve got to make sure everyone is the right personality fit for your business” he says. “If you can’t have any hour breakfast with someone, they are not right for your company.”
