Our guest for Episode #36 is Andrew Hyde. Andrew’s done a lot of things — written a book, launched three startups, hired as employee #1 at TechStars — including founding Boulder Startup Week — the first-ever Startup Week anywhere — the 10th annual edition of which runs from May 13-17th at many venues across Boulder.

Among several things, we discuss the genesis of Boulder Startup Week (and, tangentially, the Boulder Tech Podcast), and Andrew’s suggestions for how to approach the week and get the most out of your experience.

  • What workplace culture actually is – and what it isn’t.
  • Why CampMinder puts company culture first and foremost in their mission.
