Startups are known for having limited manpower and financial resources. What aspects should receive top priority for finite assets? Can startups safely avoid investing in certain aspects of the company until their resources improve?
This is a complex question, and without more context and specifics, it would be difficult to provide relevant feedback.
At the minimum, a startup should have a career webpage, a way for candidates to apply, and there should be a premium LinkedIn account to reach out to candidates.
For a technology company, a technology product and customers should be the top priority. Everything else, can be ramped up in due time.
