Episode 8: Dave DuPont – TeamSnap
As one of our people said to me, and this is someone who is top of her class at Stanford Business School, “Society tells me now that I can either work for you or work for Starbucks”
The combination of remote work and flexible hours has enabled us to become very active in hiring people returning to the workforce after taking time off to raise kids. It has been a benefit to us and also a positive societal good.
Welcome to Episode 8 of Colorado TechCast. In this episode I interview Dave DuPont, CEO of TeamSnap. Founded in 2009 and headquartered in Boulder, TeamSnap has taken the organization of youth, recreational and competitive sports into the 21st century for 20 million coaches, administrators, players and families.
