You've got the idea, maybe you've even got the funding - but it takes a team to capitalise.

So at this year's Pitch final, we asked  EJ Packe, managing director of Prelude, and Duane Jackson, entrepreneur extraordinaire,  just how the hell do you grow a kickass startup team?

EJ's prescription? "It's better to have a hole than an asshole."

In the podcast, we talk about the intricacies of hiring, the pain of firing, and why things sometimes need to go wrong before they can go right.
