Dent-makers: Themes of Enduring Companies and What You Should be Thinking About

Achievers Tech Talks is ecstatic to announce that Pat Grady, Partner at Sequoia Capital, will be delivering our next talk. This will also be the first installment in our Entrepreneurship Speaker Series, catering to the mass Toronto start-up audience as well as our hard-core technical members. Pat will be sharing the patterns and themes he's encountered while working with some of the most successful tech companies and entrepreneurs in the world.

A Wyoming native, Pat’s first job was putting roofs on houses… but he didn’t truly appreciate what it means to be a builder until he shared in the ups & downs of creating a company. Since joining Sequoia Capital in 2007, Pat has been singularly focused on supporting the next generation of great technology entrepreneurs. He gravitates toward people with the courage to bulldoze incumbents (ServiceNow, Okta, Birst, Qualtrics) and the audacity to break new ground (Jive, HubSpot, Achievers, Medallia). Pat is a casual cyclist (road or mountain), an enthusiastic snow bum (one plank or two), and a big believer in the renaissance of the enterprise. Prior to Sequoia, Pat was an inside salesman, an investor in a variety of sectors, and an undergrad at Boston College.

Spaces WILL fill up quickly, so please RSVP early!

    I'm sorry, I'll have to miss this one due to illness. I'll catch the video (if one is posted -- I hope it is, this one looks like it'll be really interesting).

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.

Henry, started Reno Motorcycle Riders
