Creating a culture strategy is important for your company at any stage. Culture influences every aspect of a startup, including team collaboration, product development, brand identity, and market success. And if you’re building a scalable product, it’s critical that you’re innovating within a durable culture.

In this workshop, we’ll explore what culture means for your team and learn ways to get started with a culture strategy.

Key learnings and takeaways:

- The foundation of a strong company culture

- Aligning your culture to your company’s mission and values

- Practical strategies for creating a culture of inclusion and collaboration

- Culture tips as your company grows
