Startup Grind is a global startup community designed to educate, inspire, and connect entrepreneurs. The event kicks off with a good round of networking over drinks and nibbles before the fireside chat begins, then wraps up with questions from the audience and more networking.
At this month's event, we'll be chatting to the incredible Kirsti Grant from Populate. Kirsti has 8 years of start-up experience with some of NZ's best success stories like TradeMe & Vend. During her time as VP Talent at Vend she helped grow the team from 37 people all in Auckland to 250 across 7 locations and 6 countries. It was during this time that she encountered a problem with how companies manage their headcount planning and people data.
Kirsti and her team ran a tight process around validating the problem and prototyping a solution and within 8 months had paying customers using their new product, Populate.
We'll be discussing how to identify and validate a problem worth solving, first steps to arriving at a solution, raising funding, hiring and more!
