This Twitter thread by Josh Pigford about his new company Maybe made me think about whether new product companies could / should hire freelancers as their main workforce.

This week Josh Pigford’s new company Maybe ditched it’s plan for a fully part-time / contract workforce, citing too much foundational work on the product needed. He now believes it's impossible for a new product company to hire only freelancers and still build a successful product. 

As a freelancer, do you think a new product company can hire solely part-time / contract workers and build a successful product? If so, what should a company like this do differently to make it a success?
