Recruit Rockstars 369: Startups Needn’t be a Grind


Startup Grind is the legendary community of 600 Chapters in 125 countries that educates, inspires, and connects entrepreneurs.
Since 2012, it has hosted 10,000 events for over 250,000 entrepreneurs.
And I just had the chance to interview its Founder Derek Andersen, based in Silicon Valley.
He’s spent the past 10 years building communities.
Derek is also co-founder & CEO of Bevy, the Customer-to-Customer SaaS platform that helps Salesforce, Atlassian, and Slack scale their event communities. His investors include Accel & Upfront Ventures.
So he knows a thing or two about building communities, scaling startups, and hiring Rockstars.
In this 20-minute conversation, we cover all three.
