Before hiring overseas, ensure you have a plan for managing a remote team.

Hiring a remote team can have many advantages for early stage companies. However teams need to have direction and guidance to perform efficiently.  This holds especially true for remote teams.   Don’t think that you’ll be able to just ‘hire’ a team overseas and set them loose on a project.  They will require much more attention than if you were working side by side.  If you’re not careful, it can end up taking much more of your time while making things less efficient.
