Fireside Chat with Mike Knoop, Zapier Co-founder + Chief Product Officer

Join our fireside chat with the Co-founder + Chief Product Officer of Zapier: Mike Knoop

You'll learn how to:

1. Scale a remote team

2. Find product market fit and develop strong traction channels

3. Create a product that can effectively handle hundreds of integration and millions of users

Early in Mike's career, he expanded his interested in technology by becoming a moderator for the Facebook developer forums and community. In October 2011, he attended a Startup Weekend with Wade Foster and Bryan Helmig, both whom I'd met while working part-time at Veterans United in college. Over 48 hours they built and pitched the first demo of what is now Zapier.

The three of them kept working on it and things were going really well. They had a few hundred paid beta customers and a product close to launch. By this point, he had stopped going to his graduate classes and was full time into Zapier. The team then joined the YC S12 batch.

Today, Zapier is an eighty-person team with over 1.5 million users.

Hosted by Autopilot, a visual marketing software for automating customer journeys.
