Startups ready to spend to hire right talent

Fast-growing startups, such as Swiggy and Rivigo, have led the hiring of senior technology executives, splurging big money to get experienced leaders in key functions. Startups are not blindly looking at Silicon Valley for talent, but hiring tech executives who have spent at least some time working in Indian internet companies. Their goal is to conduct a more rigourous assessment of whether the tech leaders will fit into the working environment of the startups, which is far removed from that of Silicon Valley companies.
