Software development in a $1 billion startup - And what we can learn from the US

Thomer came to MIT to do his PhD in computer science, but never actually finished as he became one of the first employees at Meraki.

In 2012 this high-tech startup was sold to Cisco for $1.2 billion.

Now he's back in the Netherlands with a mission: transferring the US entrepreneurial spirit back to his home country.

He'll share his story, after which we can discuss anything from the challanges of scaling up software development, to why we should embrace failure to simply get started.
