Malte: I was mainly interested in the detective work, meaning finding the candidates, evaluating their strengths and weaknesses during the interview phase, and, finally, getting the full picture of a candidate and how he or she might fit in the company. What is the best way to make sure the ventures and FinLeap are happy with the chosen candidiate?
