Today: Why Wistia Took On $17m Debt
Register For The Hangout
Today we're hosting a live Q&A with Chris Savage, CEO of Wistia. We'll be talking about the big news over at Wistia recently - Wistia's co-founders Chris Savage & Brendan Schwartz turned down the offer to sell the company and have instead taken on $17m of debt – seemingly a strange move. Why? Because Wistia are in it for the long run – they want to run their business their way.
We'll be chatting about the thought process behind the decision, how it affects their future planning, and the pressure of taking on that responsibility as a CEO, as well as Chris' talk at BoS USA 2017 about the lessons he'd learned as Wistia grew and scaled.
Bring your own questions too for Chris to answer in this interactive Hangout.
