Hack to Start

Aydin Mirzaee is the co-founder and co-CEO of Fluidware. Mirzaee has been an entrepreneur since a young age — working with his brother to find different ways to earn their own allowance. He then moved from New York City to Ottawa for school.

After finding work in the tech field, Mirzaee began to explore starting another business. He quickly left his stable job and dedicated himself to building a product and growing a company. In August of 2014, that company, Fluidware, was acquired by SurveyMonkey.

Mirzaee joins us to share his story, what it was like starting off on his entrepreneurial journey, how he acquired some of his first customers, how they built a solid team and culture at Fluidware, what it was like going through the acquisition to SurveyMonkey, the biggest challenges facing SaaS startups, and much more!
