Apart from –idea –technology –product –market opportunity –validation, the company needs an A‑Team of Executives with experience in their areas or industries in order to establish the credibility and to get their initial funding.


YES Partners firmly believes that even a company with a B‑Product can be very successful with having an A‑Team, but a company simply having an A-Product does not automatically guarantee a success with (only) a B‑Team.

When forming a Start-up team, it is important that the team has complementing skill-sets.


It is not important “who does what,” but it is crucial that someone in the team has the knowledge and understanding of the different functions of the company like Vision, Finance, Marketing, Sales, Management, Operations, Development and R&D.


Founders of Start-ups are often engineers, therefore in need to bring in business experience.

  • Industry contacts

  • Previous started & built successful companies

  • Previously backed by Investors / VCs (Venture Capital)

Depending on the stage of the company, different experts might be needed to grow the company, grow it geographically, or if for example an IPO (Initial Public Offering) is planned the Management Team (CEO, CFO) should ideally have prior IPO experience.

If the current management does not have this knowledge, YES Partners often helps the company to find those specific executives a company needs.
