QUALTRICS + BREAKTHROUGH CANCER RESEARCH
Qualtrics has teamed up with Breakthrough Cancer Research to launch the Dermot Costello Cancer Immunology Fellowship—a ground-breaking initiative that will fund a dedicated team of researchers to develop new immunotherapy treatments for the hardest-to-treat cancers. Cancer has always been part of our story. Qualtrics was founded in 2002, following one of our founder’s Scott Smith’s cancer diagnosis. As part of his recuperation, Scott and his son Ryan worked on a small project which grew into Qualtrics – which now has more than 9,000 customers in over 90 countries. Today, Ryan is still serving as CEO and Scott is thankfully cancer-free.
Our EMEA operations began in 2013 when Dermot Costello was hired to build the business here. Unfortunately, cancer affected Qualtrics again when Dermot was diagnosed with cancer. He went on to build the EMEA business from 0 to 250 employees and sadly passed away in January 2018.
Capventis was introduced to Qualtrics by Dermot, and the companies have worked together on over 150 Experience Management implementations across Europe. We’re delighted to honour Dermot through this novel event, which combines well with our sponsorship of the Northern Ireland Dodgeball team.
