Qualtrics Founders: Brothers Who Stick Together & Build a Million Dollar Business

​Why did Qualtrics co-founder and COO Jared Smith make the fundamental mistake of going into business with his family? At the Startup Grind Europe 2016 Conference, Smith stated that family is a benefit for their founding team. “The benefit of being brothers is since we were little kids we could beat on each other and have the hardest arguments, then still be buddies 10 minutes later.”

Prezi CTO Halacsy: Silicon Valley is a Good School But Lacks Extra Sense of Purpose

Whether you’re at a startup hub like Silicon Valley or a small community overseas, building a successful startup is challenging.

Media Round Up: Startup Grind Europe 2016 News from Around the Web

Startup Grind's first ever European conference was, in your words, "really inspiring," full of "amazing connections," and, by the account of one LivingSocial cofounder, surprising: "Every time I see Startup Grind," he said, "it seems to be getting bigger and bigger. The speakers and the quality somehow seems to go up and up. How the F--- do you do it?" As Derek would say, "great team = great results," and you can see some of the dedicated people behind the event above. We'll definitely be coming back next year - but if you can't wait that long, join our next Europe conference in London this year!
