How to make the right hiring decisions to support growth2 min read
On this week’s episode of the SaaS Revolution Show, we talk with SaaStock East Coast speaker Eran Ben Shushan. He is co-founder and CEO of Bizzabo, a holistic event management platform, and shares how to make the right hiring decisions as a company grows.
Originally from Tel Aviv, Israel, Eran moved to New York, three and a half years ago, as soon as the company found product-market fit. A former air force officer and a system’s engineer, Eran had his first experience with the magic and challenge of events over 12 years ago. His fascination with events was so intense that he decided to dip his toe in building a platform for them. He started Bizzabo with two other co-founders 7 years ago. Initially, it was improving networking at events and aiming to engineer serendipity for attendees. However, early on, Eran and his two co-founders saw a far bigger opportunity.
Nowadays, Bizzabo boasts two offices, an employee count of 120 and has to date raised $57 million in VC funding. The growth has been tremendous but what Eran has made sure all along is that hiring the right people to support that growth has never been compromised.
Listen on to hear:
- The fundamentals of hiring well
- One foundational rule about recruitment Eran learned the hard way
- Should a CEO speed up the hiring process if they feel they may lose a great candidate
Eran Ben Shushan is part of an absolutely stellar lineup SaaStock East Coast in New York next week on June 4-5, which includes Ragy Thomas, CEO of Sprinklr, Patrick Campbell CEO of ProfitWell, Meghan Keany Anderson, VP marketing Hubspot, David Thompson, CMO of Freshworks.
