'We Continue to Roll Out New Things'; BIMS Keynotes Strive for Innovation

"We grow in two ways—we get deeper into the industries that we are already in and we launch in new markets," Sean Griffey, CEO of Industry Dive, told my colleague Matt Kinsman earlier this year. "Almost all of our money goes back into people.
