Nate and Dave Evans, brothers and co founders of Fictiv join Jeremy and me on the show to talk about
- How Nate and Dave combined their unique interests and strengths as kids to build Fictiv (Dave's ability to break things and Nate's ability to think strategically).
- The process that Nate and Dave work through to make critical business decisions, and avoiding the 'Mom and Dad Syndrome'.
- The importance of not having the 'sibling debates' in public or in front of other work colleagues, and advantages of having an established baseline of trust over other co founders.
- How Nate and Dave have prioritized building a diverse team as they've grown and scaled Fictiv.
- The most important founder sibling questions: Who has a better jump shot? Who would win in a head-to-head wrestling match? Who is smarter?
