Congratulations! You've sold your startup, it's going global, and it's your job to help oversee a smooth transition. Your job is done, right? Or does the real work actually start now?

In this session Rahul Sood tells the story of starting a small, Canadian company; growing; and surviving the acquisition by a massive US Organization; and how he’s surviving as an entrepreneur in the world’s largest software company. He'll share his experiences, epic failures, and invaluable insights gained in a candid discussion that every entrepreneur in search of an exit needs to hear."
