This is our first episode for 2020’s Boulder Startup Week. Because of the coronavirus pandemic, this year’s startup week will, like most events these days, take place virtually. We won’t be doing as many interviews as we have the past two years, and will miss seeing everyone in person, but look forward to catching as many of the online sessions as we can. For more info and a full schedule, visit boulderstartupweek.com.

Our guest today is Dave Mayer, Founder and CEO at Technical Integrity. We talk about:

  • recruitment for startups
  • how the notoriously grinding startup lifestyle is changing
  • founders and mental health
  • the impact of COVID-19 on, well, everything.

Follow Dave on Twitter @tintegrity.

Here are some additional resources and info, referenced in our discussion:

Our guest for Episode #32 is Analiese Brown, Director of Talent & Culture at CampMinder. They’ve been building technology for camps since 2001. 

Analiese and I discuss: 

  • How to hire and retain great people in a competitive market such as Boulder’s. 
  • What workplace culture actually is – and what it isn’t.
  • Why CampMinder puts company culture first and foremost in their mission.
  • How readily the values we learned at camp translate to today’s workplace.
