How to scale in a pandemic

Jordan Dutchak UP

About four months ago, Black Swan had Jordan Dutchack on the podcast talking about the difficulties of cancelling his Uniting the Prairies conference (UP), and what that meant for the Manitoba, Alberta, and Saskatchewan tech ecosystems.

Well, UP IS BACK. Ish.

“Startups are built to scale. How do you scale in a pandemic?”
 
 

The conference was able to salvage a bit of 2020 by going virtual, and BetaKit was happy to play a part. This week’s episode of Black Swan features the panel I moderated at UPish 2020, entitled ‘We’re (Still) Hiring: Scaling Culture Pre and Post Pandemic’. Featuring leaders from Symend, Vendasta, Bold Commerce, and 54e Dev Studios, we discuss hiring, onboarding, and scaling culture pre- and mid-pandemic. Enjoy!
