Diversity and inclusion are at the heart of everything we do here at Drift because it’s in our DNA.
Our Executive Chairman and co-founder, David Cancel, and CTO and co-founder Elias Torres are part of the just 2% of VC-backed startups led by Latinx founders. What’s more, just 8% of Latinx-owned businesses operate in the technology sector, and David and Elias are on a mission to help change these statistics.
They’re helping to lead and build a strong, enduring company because they believe in the products we’ve created and the team we’ve assembled. But also — because growing up — neither of them knew that building a company like Drift was even feasible. They now want to serve as role models to show — everyone — what’s possible.
