Core culture and internal transparency

Ben Silbermann, founder at visual social media site Pinterest, and John and Patrick Collison, cofounders at online payments provider Stripe, cover the core pieces of culture that they found most valuable to their startups.


When developing your core values consider:

1. Who do we hire and what do they value?

2. What do we do every day?

3. What do we chose to communicate?

4. What do we chose to celebrate?

5. Is everyone in the startup aligned with the mission?
