Galvanize was acquired by New York-based Diligent Corporation. The deal’s eye-popping $1 billion USD price tag made Galvanize Canadian tech’s latest unicorn at the time. This fireside discussion tells the story and lessons learned from one of the largest exits in the history of British Columbia and Canada’s technology sector. You can expect to learn:

  • What all tech companies can learn from Laurie’s experience growing, scaling + exiting Galvanize.
  • Both Sides of the M&A Table: The details of acquiring and getting acquired (Galvanize acquired Rsam in 2019)   
  • What leaders should keep in focus as they build toward the future.
