I sat down with Bohdan Zabawsky, serial CTO and founder of Fortay.co to unpack transitioning from a startup to a major organization, hiring for success, anticipating problems, and dealing with toxic employees while keeping strong employees motivated — specifically engineers, whether they are destined for leadership or not.
Finding product-market fit should be #1 priority for every startup. It's a race against time to find it before you run out of money. Pivots are an inevitable part of it, and as a founder, you should get comfortable with changing and moving very fast. Surprisingly, aside from Andreessen Horowitz, very few people talk about these topics. That's what makes this video so special.
