The VC Specials: Episode 2

Boaz Albaranes, Managing Partner at Mindset Ventures

“As it seems now in hiring salespeople, It’s more or less like flipping a coin.”

We are thrilled to share the first instalment of our VC Special series, where our usual host, James Hounslow, becomes interviewee as Boaz Albaranes, Managing Partner at Mindset Ventures, poses all the important questions.

In this episode, Boaz and James tackle the nuanced challenges of sales recruitment in the tech sector, debunking myths and highlighting the importance of strategic timing, market intuition, and the right blend of skills for building effective go-to-market teams. 

They dissect the critical elements that contribute to successful tech sales hires, emphasizing the significance of understanding market needs and the pitfalls of relying solely on technological prowess for company growth.

The pair offer practical advice on navigating the complexities of global expansion, cultural adaptation, and the essential balance between sales expertise and tech innovation.

Thank you to Boaz for embracing the role of host and asking the all-important questions!
