Amir is the CEO and founder of remote-first company Doist, the company behind Todoist, and Twist.
Born in Bosnia, he grew up in Denmark, started the business in South America and now lives in Barcelona, Spain and Santiago, Chile. Doist was founded in 2007, has received $0 of outside investment, employs over 120 people in 30 different countries. He believes a product stands a better chance of resonating with a global workforce when people around the world create it. For him, working remotely is the way of the future. He does not know what the next decade will bring, but it won’t include selling out or getting acquired. Amir doesn’t have an exit strategy – he has a mission to help shape the future of work for decades to come
Reflections on Growing a Remote Company in a Pandemic
Amir and Wade Foster will share and compare their experiences leading and growing remote-first companies. Neither fits into the stereotypical tech company mold. They have both grown steadily over a decade and continue to grow rapidly to this day. They will discuss how they’ve adapted over the course of 2020 and beyond to maintain the health, growth and impact of their companies for the next 10 years and beyond.
