What are your concerns when hiring a software consulting firm to fuel your startup fast growth?

This question is mostly for CTOs / technical managers who have had to hire software consultants/dev shops to support their teams while the company was growing. What are some of your biggest concerns and what makes you choose one firm over another?

We just went through this;

1. Have a very clear definition of what you are looking to get done.
2. Have an extremely clear SoW with conditions over failure to delivery, IP assignment etc.
3. Have confidence in the project manager (point person)
4. Regular meetings (should be an agile project)
5. Get references, particularly close to what you are trying to achieve

Hi Juan,

I agree with Kate.

Additionally - Do reference check, take demonstration of past work. Try to play with already developed products/ apps.

Thanks,
Vishal
