Why you should NOT hire in-house developers when starting a software business

Hiring developers can cost an arm and a leg (literally)

How much does it cost to hire a developer again?

Forget trying to hire people, are you sure your idea is worth cracking the code?

Hold on a sec. What is the problem that is being solved again? Don’t quite get who is experiencing this problem. Is it really painful? If this product is built, will they use it? Will they pay for it?

Sometimes, a simple ketch is all that is required to validate an assumption

Ready to start development but still not quite ready to have a few developers on your payroll?

Eventually, a software product business still needs an in-house development team
