I just had a chance to interview Stuart Frankel. Stuart is Co-Founder & CEO of Narrative Science, one of Chicago’s fastest-growing Startups. He’s hired 80 employees & raised $30 million in venture capital to build this artificial intelligence company. So cool: their enterprise software instantly turns piles of data into fully-written investment research reports. In this 20-minute interview, Stuart reveals: How Not(!) to build a Startup culture / How the kind of employees you need changes as your Startup grows / What to look for when recruiting Rockstars / How to know when to raise outside capital, and how much.
