Google, Microsoft,Facebook, Amazon and Cisco made over 50 acquisitions between them. So what do the tech superbrands look for? What are their acquisition and investment strategies, and how would they advise technology entrepreneurs looking to engage with them? The CEO Agenda, ICON Corporate Finance, Hotwire, Silicon Valley Bank and Fox Williams invite you to join us at Google Campus for a special audience with: Debu Purkayastha - Principal, New Business Development, Google Debu Debu has a wide mandate spanning several key strategic focus areas across EMEA,India & other regions.
