How do you lure the best people to your start-up when you don’t have the money to match what they’re paid now? 

That’s the question that Jeff Cornwall answers over at The Entrepreneurial Mind. He concludes that to persuade the right people to come on board:

… you need to listen to what they want beyond the salary, and find creative ways to put it all together. Once you know who you want, get into the selling mode and use all of the important attributes you know are important to them in your pitch.

One key element in the mix is, of course, giving away equity.  It’s something that can prove very persuasive and very motivating to the potential employee or partner.  Equally it’s something that can prove psychologically difficult to give up!
