The Good the Bad and the Ugly: Interviews

July 29, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

In working at, consulting for, partnering with, and advising numerous startups, angel-funded to “unicorn” and post-IPO, speaker, Jeremy Glassenberg, has seen numerous companies grow and succeed, grow and crash, and not grow at all. There are many ways a company can fail, and many factors that lead to a company’s success (including luck), but there are key traits in culture that are consistent among successful companies – hiring the right people is number one.

Most companies claim to hire “smart people, no jerks” but few actually act on it. To truly execute well, one needs to understand what to really look for. With modern studies in neuropsychology (including entertaining studies of chimpanzees), we can now understand why hiring good people can be hard, and what we can do differently.

We’ll review a few of these modern studies and apply them to success and failure in the technology industry – and as an applicant, you’ll learn how to spot these traits in the companies you encounter.


  • 6:00 – 6:15 p.m. CT – Pre-Event Networking
  • 6:15 – 7:30 p.m. – Lecture by Jeremy Glassenberg, followed by audience Q&A
