About this event

Startup Grind Barcelona is partnering with 4YFN Barcelona to connect our community to the startup event of the world's largest exhibition for the mobile industry, GSMA MWC

We'll have a fireside chat session with Jordi Romero, CEO @ Factorial, about hiring and culture in hyper-growth stages. Factorial went from startup to scaleup and managed to raise 100MM in their latest funding rounds, since 2020. They're well over 500 people in four different continents, growing to become a leader in their market. We will discuss with their CEO, Jordi Romero, the difficulties of hyper-growth in the process of hiring, operations, and culture, comparing organic vs. inorganic growth.

This special event will take place within the 4YFN and it'll go as follows:

  • fireside chat interview with Jordi Romero (CEO @ Factorial) hosted by our Chapter Director Àlex Rodríguez Bacardit.
  • networking session in which attendees talk to each other freely over some beers. There's no Startup Grind where you don't leave with new friends and exciting connections.
