May 21st, 2014 Startup Grind New York City Hosts Anthony Casalena

On Wednesday, May 21st, OLC attended “Startup Grind New York City Hosts Anthony Casalena” at the AOL Headquarters located at 770 Broadway, New York City, New York. The event was powered by Google for Entrepreneurs and hosted by Startup Grind. 

Anthony Casalena dawned the audience with lessons learned as the Founder and CEO of Squarespace, a company he has grown from one to over 300+ employees based in Soho over the past ten years. Originated in his college dorm room, Casalena grew a hobby into a startup sharing his pitfalls along the way. He fielded a feed of tweeted questions from how he spends a typical day to the importance of constructing a solid team centered around a shared culture and mission. “The things that make you successful in the past don’t necessarily make you successful in the future,” he says, along with “My job is to have high self-perspective.”
