Truelogic Takes the Stage at Web Summit Rio: Key Takeaways on Building a Successful Startup Team

By Truelogic Software

Truelogic made its Web Summit debut! That's right, Truelogic is making its way to conferences around the world to connect with tech professionals and business leaders from all industries, backgrounds, and cultures to discuss the latest advancements, industry trends, and best practices with the brightest minds, all at a jam-packed four-day event. 

This year, Truelogic found themselves on stage as COO Santiago Chapotot was invited to participate in a panel discussion at the largest tech conference in South America, Web Summit Rio, sharing insights on how founders can build a successful startup team.


Here's a recap of the key takeaways:

  • Education alone isn't enough: While education and technical skills are crucial, panelists stressed the importance of seeking individuals who are self-motivated, adaptable, and possess a "get things done" attitude. These traits are essential for navigating the fast-paced startup environment. Look beyond the resume: Focus on the "Big 3": skills, potential, and mindset. A well-rounded team is essential.

  • Diversity matters: Build a multi-disciplinary team with a variety of backgrounds and experiences for better problem-solving and broader appeal. Bringing together people who normally wouldn't collaborate together, such as HR and Engineering, can lead to unique solutions and build more well-rounded processes within the organization and its teams. 

  • Culture starts at the top: Instill your values and decision-making process in the core team for a strong foundation. These values will be passed down from the managers and spread to the rest of the team members. Culture is built from the top down, so that must be reflected in your organization's leadership. 

  • Pinpoint what makes your company attractive:  Find what makes your company attractive for potential talent. Unique projects and notable clients are what attract developers seeking exciting opportunities to Truelogic. It may be different for other companies, but finding that edge will help founders bring the talent to them. 


Building high-performing, successful teams is what we do here at Truelogic, and we are thankful for the opportunity to be selected to have this discussion among other amazing leaders. 

Truelogic's participation at Web Summit Rio marks a significant milestone. By sharing our expertise in building winning startup teams, we hope to empower the next generation of entrepreneurs and offer guidance to current founders who want to make the best out of the teams they create.
