Great culture has nothing to do with ping pong 🏓 - (StartupWatching #181)

Happy Thursday watchers!
We just published a new piece at Krit all about building culture at your startup. You may have guessed the title, it’s the first link below. 😉
We’ve been wanting to write about culture for a while. But the direction of this piece was influenced by a talk I heard at Collision Conf this year. A CEO was talking about how her company had a great culture, because they still do bagel Mondays…
I wanted to scream. 😱 Bagel Mondays are not culture! So my question for you today is, how do you define culture? And what do most startups get wrong?
Cheers from Charleston ✌️

Airbnb closed their series C with Peter Thiel in 2012.

When Brian Chesky, Airbnb’s co-founder, asked Thiel for his biggest piece of advice, Thiel told them not to screw up one thing:

The culture.

He had just given Airbnb $150M.
