Growing a company is stage specific. You just raised $10MM from Sequoia, you’re 3 co-founders, and you want to go hire the VP of Engineering from Uber. WRONG! You need to get to Uber’s growth rate first before your a fit for someone that's currently flying a plane of that size and speed. It’s painful, slow and expensive to hire/fire exec staff as you get through the various stages. Paint the rocket booster stage process: that's the way big companies are built. Fractional executives can help you get there.
