startup canada podcast

Whether you’re running a logistics startup or breaking ground in healthcare wearables, founders need to encourage problem-solving, risk taking, innovation, and employee satisfaction. That’s why Catherine Dahl, co-founder and CEO of Beanworks, strives to create a healthy company where employees are driven to succeed.

“Culture eats strategy every time. If you don’t have a healthy culture in your company, you can’t scale fast and you won’t succeed very long.”

Dahl launched Beanworks in 2012 and transformed it into the disruptive FinTech tool it is today. In her spare time, she is an active champion for mental health and is dedicated to ensuring that women have the opportunities and resources they need to grow their careers.

In this week’s #StartupPodcast, host Rivers Corbett talks to Dahl about what it means to innovate traditional finance and how this Gastown startup is giving back.
