Editor’s NoteThe power of Silicon Valley is evident in almost everything we do. But is the drastic change that technology has wrought on modern life having an effect on the world of social entrepreneurship?
Find Those Right Minds:
When you build your team, act as if the world is your oyster. Find the right person who has the talent, network, and passion to help you succeed. Talent has become a focus in Silicon Valley and cited as the primary differentiator between competitors. As business author Jim Collins says, "the Who” is what matters most. One of the reasons that talent matters most is the network that the talent represents. When you hire someone, you are also getting access to the resources they represent in their network. Silicon Valley entrepreneurs are masters at this. Reid Hoffman recognized this and founded LinkedIn on this very premise.
