Are you building a mission-driven business? Do you believe that defining core values is a critical piece to achieving your mission? Learn from OurFamilyWizard and Upsie about how a deliberate and inclusive approach to defining mission, vision, and values can pull out the true ethos of a culture, lead to stronger strategy, better and faster decisions, and more empowered execution across the organization. Having both recently received major funding from world class investors, building mission, vision, and values into the foundation of the organization has been key for an accelerated phase of growth.

With a mission to help families living separately thrive, every decision at OurFamilyWizard starts by thinking through the implications on co-parents, their children, and their support system as they grow their market leading co-parenting application.

With a mission to reinvent extended warranties with superior, selfless coverage and service, Upsie is taking the warranty industry by storm in a more affordable, transparent, and customer-centric way.

This session will be both aspirational and practical with advice on how to build a mission and culture that scales while a business faces rapid growth, investor pressures, and changing market dynamics. Learn how to stay true, stay strong, and remain authentic to why your business exists to help the world.
