Dan Manian on staying connected as your company grows
Play • 30 min

There are certain inflection points in a company’s growth where the culture can change. At first, it’s one tight-knit group. Then, as you grow, you see someone walking around the office and you have no clue if they’re an employee, a partner or a complete stranger. How do you maintain real, authentic human connection as your company scales?

Dan Manian joins us today to chat about how technology can be used to help scale personal interaction and why it’s so important to help people build real connections. Especially for remote or dispersed teams.

About our guest: 

After spending years working in product at fast-growing startups, Dan co-founded Donut (where he's CEO) to help teams foster cultures of connectivity and collaboration. When he’s not working on Donut, you can find him playing music for business with his band, Mobile Steam Unit.
