People Issues in a Startup

Feb 10 202125m listen time


People issues in startups, unlike an error in tech, can’t just be solved by fixing a bug. No one knows this better than Syed Ali Abbas, Chief Strategy Officer at Singapore HR tech startup Epitome, who’s had to mediate and settle some ugly disputes between founders as well as various other critical employee matters in the many startups he’s worked with. He encourages founders to save themselves from the heartache of cleaning up rampant, out-of-control people issues that snowball as startups grow, by investing in people management strategies from day one.

Gain Actionable Insights Into:

  • Why it’s so important for startup leaders to pay close attention to the people side of things
  • The different stages of a startup (and the people issues that come along with them) – family, tribe, and village
  • Syed’s advice for how founders can set up healthy people management processes
