OVERCOMING STARTUP RISKS: The People Stuff

Founders everywhere are doing everything to survive during this pandemic and it’s no secret that how one responds to a situation matters more than what caused it.

So for this month’s edition of Raid (T̶h̶e̶) Your Fridge, we’re stoked to host Martin Gonzalez, co-author of a multi-year Google study on people issues in tech startups, on August 27 (Thu), 11:00 AM - 12:30 PM, via Zoom.

Martin will share effective founder capabilities distilled from hundreds of sessions with startups worldwide through his work at Google for Startups - People Lab.

Why join

Startups have people problems and we’re here to help you understand these people-related risks better. Join Martin and discover how effective startup founders overcome the biggest risk to their successes — the people stuff.

Thanks and see you all at Raid (T̶h̶e̶) Your Fridge on August 27th!

Your Fridgemaster,
