How Much Influence Should a Startup Studio Have on the Companies It Creates?

How Much Influence Should a Startup Studio Have on the Companies It Creates?

We care a lot about culture. We think it’s one of the cornerstones of a successful startup. When we were operating Strangeloop, we made culture a top priority. We did all the usual things you see in tech — parties, breakfasts, ping pong — but it was our effort to operate with a relatively flat organizational structure that ensured we had a happy, productive team. We must have been doing something right, because we won BC Business’s “best company to work for” award five years in a row.

Moving forward, we want to make sure that culture is a priority in any company we create.
