TechVancouver is back for an April edition with two huge acquisition stories from our hometown.

In a session titled “The truth about startup exits”, Dennis Pilarinos and Lisa Shields shed light on what it is like to be acquired by Apple and PayPal respectively. Pilarinos is the co-founder of buddybuild and Shields founded Hyperwallet.

Buddybuild was acquired by Apple for an undisclosed amount in January 2018 and their team joined the Xcode engineering group at Apple to build amazing developer tools for the entire iOS community.

18-year-old Hyperwallet was acquired by PayPal for $400 million and Shields is at it again with FI.SPAN.
