On this episode

Peter Drucker famously wrote, “Culture eats strategy for breakfast.” In this episode, Nina sits down with Sofia Nunes, Co-Founder & Head of Culture at Mambu and Sophie Theen, Chief People & Customer Operations Officer at Oakam to discuss if Mr. Drucker was right. Together, they explore the ins and outs of how culture at a startup begins and where things go wrong. They delve into advice for budding entrepreneurs and best practices for building truly inclusive, diverse cultures.
