Skillz COO Speaks at Scale Up Event

Our COO, Casey Chafkin, recently spoke on a panel at Scale Up alongside executives from GridGains,, GameChanger SF, Seeker Health, and Hippo. Scale Up is an event presented by The Silicon Valley Business Journal and San Francisco Business Times, in which leading entrepreneurs are invited to share their successes, key lessons learned, and the obstacles they faced while building thriving startups.

During Casey’s panel, he discussed the importance of building a product you truly believe in and beginning the process with confidence. He also spoke to the unique opportunities and challenges that come with scaling your startup in the Silicon Valley and larger Bay Area. Finally, he touched on the Skillz strategy for funding, staffing, and technology.  

After the panel discussion, the speakers separated into mentoring tables to offer guidance to attendees and answer questions on a range of topics from talent development to funding. There was also the opportunity to network and learn more about the newest business technologies, as well as hor d’oeuvres and drinks!
