Engineering A Startup #17: My Company Got Acquired. Twice. Now What?

Mike knows people like to talk about the numbers around acquisitions, but according to him, it’s all about strategic fit. Once his company got acquired for a second time, it was time to move on and try something new. He took some time to detach, travel across Canada with his family, and now he’s back to starting from scratch.

Mike is a pro at building teams and companies, and share a lot of insight into how to build a successful organization. We also have a lot of fun talking about other aspects of running a business, like the challenge of picking a name and the insanity of domain name hunting!
