Startups are a Different Breed. What to Expect if You Work at One (with Dave Fano)

My guest this week is Dave Fano, Founder and CEO of Teal, which provides people with tools, resources, and community for career management. We are talking about startups – how they are different, what to expect if you work at one, and how to transition back into a corporate environment. We also talk about the red flags – and “green flags” – to look for in evaluating a startup as a potential employer.

Dave Fano is an entrepreneur with more than 20 years’ experience building products and services to help people leverage technology to achieve more with less. The former Chief Growth Officer of WeWork, Dave is now focused on empowering people with tools and resources to grow their careers.
