Every startup dreams of a monster IPO or being acquired by a big company. However, those are not the only ways startups can have successful exits. This session brings together startups (or their corporate partners) that have been acquired, merged or partnered with big companies like Samsung and Under Armor, leading to their businesses scaling to new levels and resulting in “happy endings” all around.
