Getting the right talent for leadership role

I am a new entrant to the start up world and have realized the challenge in getting like minded profiles for senior leadership roles. I thought people will be interested in the concept of "startup within a startup" model so that they can fulfil their dream of becoming an entrepreneur without the additional headache of managing funding, infra etc by going for a lower than market salary but higher incentives like share of revenue and ESOP.

Dear Mr. Arvind Kamath, I would have a few interested peoples for you please contact me on ammar.sulaimani (my skype ID). more  
Yes,you are right Arvind for any startup in a situation such as yours ideally will require someone who is too passionate and has money to support his/herself until startup has reached to the point where it can afford people on higher salary scale.
