Event description


There’s no straight path when scaling.

Scaling a company can be a leader’s toughest challenge. It requires grit, focus and the ability to make tough decisions while weathering the growing pains.

Join us on Wednesday, July 18 from 9:00 a.m. to 10 a.m. ET for a conversation with two experienced Silicon Valley tech leaders who've steered companies through the challenges of scaling up.

Jennifer Tejada is CEO of PagerDuty, which empowers over 10,000 companies including eHarmony, Slack and Lululemon with intelligent insights into critical disruptions before they impact the customer. Chris O’Neill is CEO of Evernote, the app tackling today’s information overload by allowing its 220-million users to capture, store and share notes. Our guests will share what they’ve learned leading technology companies through growth and profitability, and what Canadian companies need to consider when transforming from startup to scale-up.
