Conflict in the Startup Marriage

Hilton Austin Downtown
Austin Chamber Offices
500 E 4th St

We had hearts and dollar signs in our eyes when we first joined together as CEO and CTO. But the romance has worn off, and we did not get into this business to worry about feeling undervalued by each other.

Build a healthy relationship from the start by learning how to evaluate and align your tech strategy with your business strategy.

Dive deep to explore insight into the mindset of not only the two personalities between the founder and the tech lead, but also the needs of the sales team vs the development team.

Understand the drive of your team members and why speaking their language will define your company's culture and outline its ultimate success.

Finding your perfect co-founder, and how to hire for culture fit can help to lower the chance of conflicts. We'll talk about how to find talent and hire for culture fit.
