Today, I’m talking with Greg Koberger, the Founder and CEO of ReadMe, a SaaS that helps their 3,000+ customers develop relationships by building beautiful, personalized, and interactive developer hubs. They also recently announced that they raised a Series A round of financing, lead by Accel.
In our chat, we focus on two key areas of any business: productivity and culture.
When it comes to productivity, there is an obsession to getting more and more done and it’s why you can find thousands of “ultimate productivity hacks” out there. Greg values productivity, but has taken a unique “No Guilt” policy towards it which has had unexpected results.
On the culture front, we break down what “culture” actually means, why it’s so important to the success of a startup, and how to maintain it as your company grows.
This was a wide ranging conversation and I’m sure you’ll get a lot out of it.
