Katy Shields is VP People at VSCO, the fast-growing creative tools company.

She joined a business with 50 people, and has scaled it to over 170.

Based in Oakland California, VSCO builds creative tools, spaces and connections driven by self-expression. (You should download their amazing mobile app today.)

They’ve raised capital from Accel, Glynn Capital, Obvious Ventures, and Goldcrest Investment.

In this 20-minute conversation, she shares how you can do the same.
