This week host Brian Mac Mahon speaks with Monica Chitnis of Squadra.
In this episode, Brian and Monica talk about what Squadra is, how it all started, how they managed to get it out to the market, and how they intend to reach their unicorn stage.
“What we are trying to do is unlock human motivational drivers. That is really the key” – Monica Chitnis
A few words from Squadra:
Every team – not just sports teams – needs a coach to motivate them, help them build the skills that matter, and be productive and successful. Squadra carves out a new space in the workplace productivity stack as the first virtual coaching app for teams, complementing existing tools like Slack, Zoom, and Google suite. Squadra does the coaching right inside the app, rescaling, upscaling, you name it!
