Who to Hire When Building a Technical Product as a Non-Technical Co-Founder

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

When you have an idea, but no technical expertise, deciding how to build can be intimidating. Join our panel of technologists who will share strategies for developing a concept as a non-technical founder. Learn when to hire a freelancer vs an agency vs finding a CTO and where to find them. We'll also talk about payment options, including equity and when you should distribute it for work. 

We recommend attending this event before attending Tuesday's "Pitch Developers to Get Your App Built": http://sched.co/6uQH
