Startup Exits: Deal-Making in Social Commerce

Thursday, July 12th from 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm

The Social Commerce space -- spanning online retail, fashion, flash sales, and social discovery -- is white hot. Deal making in the industry is set to accelerate at a torrid pace, fueled by numerous fast-growing, well-funded competitors all chasing marker and mind share.

Where will it all lead?  What companies are making acquisitions and what startups are likely to get acquired?  How can social commerce startups use M&A and strategic partnering to drive growth?

These and other topics will be discussed by our panel of experts, beginning with a fireside chat with one of the speakers.  We look forward to seeing you!

Speakers:

Carrington Williams, Director of Strategic Finance at Etsy

Shane Rahmani, VP Business Development & Strategy, Thrillist (acquired Jackthreads) 

Ashley John Heather, CEO of dotbox (acquired by MDC)

John Caplan, CEO of OpenSky (social shopping platform, raised $41M)

Marty Armstrong, Director of Partnerships & Corporate Development, GSI Commerce

Moderated by Nathan Beckord, Principal, VentureArchetypes Startup Advisors
