Matthew Stanton – Co-founder and CEO of SolePower
As an outdoor enthusiast, Matt knows how inconvenient when electronic devices are out of battery. The team came up with an idea that could generate power by walking and charge mobile devices simply as a power bank. After getting support and funding from several accelerators, prototype was successfully produced in 2013 and moving forward to mass production as next step, mainly targeting outdoor activities lovers now. Nevertheless, the innovative concept has great potential of solving the issue of energy shortage for people who live off the grid in developing countries, bringing not only convenience but also social impact as well.
How to attract top talent for your startup?
Never persuade someone to join the team because as long as you are very passionate about your job, showing them attractiveness, potential and the value of your product, people will come to you. After working with people who have involved, you should also consider the end goal of making them full-time hired. Besides, people should be informed honestly about how the company works and which phase the team is at. Finally, you should always show commitment to your job to them, having them understood that the team is not going to flake out in order to prove you are the real-deal for them.
