How does a startup attract successful people who are already involved in other ventures? | LinkedIn:

I think it really comes down to a nurturing process. What I mean by that is a startup should think about the people they are going to need, programmers, sales, marketers etc. and then they should start early by connecting with those people via local meetups, social media and Linkedin.

For those that they are able to connect with (it may be a whole pool in each category) they should follow any blogs that they are writing, retweet, comment, and share any interesting things they see those people talking about and hopefully that will lead to a degree of familiarity, which may make it easy to approach them at some time in the future.

This of course is a drip feed process, if you need someone right away this nurturing process isn't going to work, but if you start early getting people interested in what you are doing and being interested in what they are doing then you will find that it is a pretty good way of finding good people when it's your turn to grow.

Thanks,
