Why Company Culture Should be Your Number One Priority, by Charlie Kim
As the Founder and CEO of Next Jump, a New York based company that boasts one of the highest retention rates in the tech space, Charlie Kim is an expert in vision, values, and vibrant company culture. In this talk from the New York Founder Institute, Charlie shares his wealth of knowledge with new founders, on the basics of starting up and what it takes to build a meaningful and enduring technology company.
