Starting a business is hard, especially when you're trying to keep down costs. In this video, Entrepreneur Network partner Evan Carmichael and Sage Group CEO Stephen Kelly answer the question, "How do I persuade a developer to code for me even though I don't have much money because I'm a student?"

The answer is simple: find someone who believes in your company just as much as you. If you want to have a successful tech company, having a tech leader on the team and someone who cares just as deepy about the business as you do is necessary. Other ways to attract a developer could be offering equity in the company or promising a position.
