How do you find the ideal team for a startup?

Founders have this feeling that we've got to pick all the right people, and they've got to stick with the company forever. But you are not going to, and the ones that are poor picks should get out of the organization as fast as possible.

There's a good chance that your tech team, for example, is going to roll over three or four times. That sounds like the worst outcome ever, and it can be,but sometimes you need that many iterations before you find the team that's supposed to be with you.

A lot of founders hold on to that original team, as if the original bet was always the best bet. In reality, the original bet was the bet you made with the least possible data. Now that you know what you need and the company has evolved.
