Darrell Heaps knows what it’s like to go global. As CEO and Founder of Q4 Inc., he’s gone from running a Canada-based startup to an international organization, home to big name clients like Nike, Salesforce, FedEx and McDonald’s. Q4 helps their clients deliver websites, social and mobile applications, and data intelligence products that redefine how they interact with capital markets.
For my latest RSR interview, I sat down with Darrell to pick his brain on the many risks involved in startup inception, international expansion, acquisition, and team management as an organization becomes increasingly complex.
Darrell raised over $28 million at Q4 Inc. and grew his team close to 200 people. So there is plenty you can learn from him.
