In a year filled with lessons learned, Kim T, head of DRW VC, said that one of the biggest was a reminder to founders that, while long-term planning is good, it’s also important to stay nimble and recognize and seize opportunities as quickly as they arise.
“If our values aren’t maintained, the culture will erode. If the culture erodes, we will not be able to execute our vision.”
DRW aims to hire the industry’s best — a mindset we also apply to enhancing existing employee’s professional development. Our emphasis on career growth manifests in a number of ways, like a leadership training curriculum designed by senior leaders. This program, along with additional external trainings, helps employees evolve their skills and roles at the firm. Our growth mindset even extends to Chicago’s tech scene, where we routinely onboard, then hire interns into full-time roles each year.
