Session Title: Real-Life Pied Piper: How Distil Networks Fought Back

For those who watched HBO’s Silicon Valley, they probably wonder how much a startup can endure. From an IP assignment lawsuit, the fight to stretch funding, botching an important customer test and the inability to pay server bills, at times it can be hard to believe. However, for Andrew Stein, Co-Founder and Chief Scientist of Distil Networks, the storyline was uncannily identical to his team’s experience building their own startup – and they made it out the other side.

In this session, Andrew will attest to what it’s like to experience the real-life version of the show, explaining what he learned and how he persevered. Over tasty snacks, Andrew will explain what goes into building a startup, and the qualities needed in order to start a company from scratch.
