Fireside Chat with David Cancel, Founder & CEO of Drift

As the CEO and Co-founder of DriftDavid Cancel is known for creating hypergrowth products and product teams. He’s also been featured in The New York Times, Forbes, Fortune, Wired, and Fast Company, and has guest lectured on entrepreneurship at universities such as Harvard Business School and MIT’s Sloan School of Management. We were thrilled to welcome him as a speaker for the January edition of our Core Collective Series.

In this event moderated by Core Member Lindsey Christensen, CMO of thoughtbot, David shares his wisdom on everything from finding product-market fit and getting valuable (read: not indifferent) customer feedback, to identifying hypergrowth market trends, the real meaning of company culture, and building a differentiated brand. Access all this advice and more by tuning into the video below.

This event was a part of our Core Collective Series, a string of events aimed at uncovering and sharing collective learnings from the Underscore Core community.
