Skillz CEO/Founder Speaks at Inc. GrowCo

Not long ago, we were named the #1 fastest-growing company in America on the Inc. 5000, and became the first eSports company to ever top the list. Our growth hasn’t slowed since, and we love giving back to the larger entrepreneurial community by sharing what we have done to succeed. Our CEO and founder, Andrew Paradise, even attended Inc. Magazine’s GrowCo 2018 event just last week to speak on a panel about his experience!

The annual Grow Your Company conference is the essential event for company builders hosted by Inc. Magazine. For over 40 years, Inc. has been educating, empowering, and reporting on entrepreneurs and entrepreneurship. Taking the knowledge learned, they have created this three-day conference to provide a space for experienced entrepreneurs and industry disruptors to work with up-and-coming business professionals. The event provides its 600+ attendees with 25 of the most successful, creative, and disruptive speakers out there and more than 20 enriching sessions. Our CEO joined a packed list of speakers, including Shark Tank’s Daymond John; Drybar founder Alli Webb; and Slack co-founder Cal Henderson.

In his panel, Andrew spoke with fellow Inc. 5000 honorees to share insights about how to make it on the coveted list. He spoke about the ups and downs of creating something completely new, including how to handle the tough decisions that inevitably arise when a fledgling business faces adversity throughout its initial years.
