Fred Wilson venture capitalist and Co-Founder Union Square Ventures
“Some entrepreneurs and CEOs buy into "hire the best talent available" mantra.  The other approach [Wilson advocates] is [to] hire for culture and fit.
 Diversity should be a core value of the team building process. [Seek] diversity of thought, experience, mindset, and angle of attack.
Don't hire a token . But most importantly, hire people who will enjoy working together, who fit well together, who will make each other better. This is what hiring for cultural fit means. [Start] with the founding team and build on top of that.
[Have] a one pager that outlines the [company’s core values].  [Each] new hire should be assessed against [that] framework [for fit].” Fred Wilson MBA Mondays: Culture And Fit, May 21 2012; http://www.avc.com/a_vc/2012/05/mba-mondays-culture-and-fit.html
