Posted at 09:09h in Webinar Archive 0 Comments
Michael Arrieta was an early employee at DocuSign and grew with that company’s rapid rise and eventual IPO. After such a successful run, rather than stay in tech and reach for the next rung of the Silicon Valley ladder, he decided to step out and buy small businesses. The result is holdco Garden City, started in 2020, which has since acquired 3 businesses. We hear about those acquisitions today, and we spend a lot of time on Michael’s philosophy of how to implement change and what changes to prioritize. Michael believes that improved culture & increased sales are better levers than upgrading the technology a business uses.
