Carlos Escutia: Building a remote work environment
In this Episode on Startup Foundations, we speak to Carlos Escutia, the CEO of GroWrk Remote, a remote office management platform.
About This Episode:
With most companies transitioning to remote environments, we discuss this pivot and some of the major benefits of having a remote workforce. Carlos comes from a family of entrepreneurs and is a repeat startup founder.
Greg Miaskiewicz: Outside of what you just mentioned, what do you think are some of the major advantages of remote work for a startup?
Carlos N Escutia: Yeah, no, for sure. I think that the greatest benefit is that obviously you have access to talent that you normally wouldn't have access to. If I had stayed in San Francisco Bay Area where I lived for the past three years, now I'm actually moved down to San Diego, Los Angeles area, it would have been a lot harder to build a team that I've built right now. So we're close to 15 people right now. And so the people that I have access to, I can say with full confidence that two of them are one of the to developers in Mexico. So I wouldn't be able to afford that type of talent in the U.S., right? This is coming back to the cost-benefit.
