George Kurtz, Co-founder CrowdStrike - The Path from Accounting Major to Programmer to Ringing the IPO Bell The Founder Formula

    • Entrepreneurship

George Kurtz is the President, Founder, & CEO of CrowdStrike, but his journey to the CEO of a $20B+ company isn’t one that a lot of people would expect. 
  
On this episode of The Founder Formula, we sit down with George to discuss:  
  
- What nearly got him fired from PricewaterhouseCoopers 
  
- Why his lack of collegiate tech background makes him a more effective tech CEO 
  
- How CrowdStrike had a remote work force model in place before COVID19 hit 
  
- Why the IPO is the green flag for a company, not the checkered flag.
