How do you build an AWESOME culture at your startup? Well, Allen Gilmer knows. He built one of the best startups our industry has ever seen. His advice is simple: “Don’t hire assholes.”
Allen “Santa” Gilmer recounts his early days in El Paso, building DrillingInfo (now Enverus) into an industry leader while maintaining the same fun culture that started even after getting private equity money. By the way, what did he do with that money? He generously gave it away…well some of it ($200,000).
T-Lo and Dr. Funkenstein talk about some of the old DI User Conferences, giving Billy Beane a hard time, and find out what the heck is going on in Allen’s “Man-Barn”. A must listen with the most approachable legend in the industry.
