NBA Losing & Startups Who Fail to Screen for “Culture Fit”

Jay Acunzo, NextView Ventures

If you’ve ever been a fan of a team with a “system coach,” like the New York Knicks, you’d know that coach will search far and wide to find players that fit a certain culture. Do you search for employees at your company the same way? It’s not mandatory that you do, but if you brand your company as one with a very strong culture, go all-in.

Jeremy Durant, Bop Design

NBA legend Michael Jordan once said, “I’ve failed over and over again in my life, and that is why I succeed.” Sometimes, the best way to do better is to learn what it’s like to do worse.

Here are a couple ideas to get you started and ready for the weekend.

Measuring Fun: Inside Snapchat’s Blackbox

Parker T., The Signal

Snapchat is a phenomenal tool for more personal interaction with customers in a fun, creative way. Many companies are jumping onboard the Snapchat bandwagon, concentrating greatly on measuring things like “retention rate” on the app. This begs the question to be asked, though – does anyone remember how to have fun? Sometimes, things like views, screenshots, and follow-backs aren’t as important as just letting loose and being creative in a constructive way.
