Congrats on your new business venture!!..
Have you defined your Business Model & its USP as how it is different from other firms?.
Problems with your recruiters:-
* Have you defined their KRAs
* Quantifying their performance? like calls to potential candidates in a day, X no of candidates for interview with clients etc..
* Have you analysed their work styles, identified their strengths & weakness to work around their work performance.
When you start a business - you don't need to be a MBA nut have lots of common sense which is not so common...look at successful entreprenuers - they used their judgement or intuition to create the opportunities.
Suggest - you look at your business venture - from a different perspective and go all out.

If it is a skill issue then you need to do a gap analysis and provide them with training needed
Hope this helps
