About this event

September 12, 2001 — not a good day to try to sell your startup’s software to your first customer ever — a hospitality company, no less. But that’s exactly what husband and wife team Amy Pressman and Borge Hald had to do, and 14 years later, it’s a moment that remains emblematic of their dedication to Medallia’s mission — using technology to continuously improve the experiences that companies deliver to their customers. The two spent 10 years bootstrapping their SaaS startup before taking on the investment of Sequoia Capital and working closely with board members like Doug Leone and Steve Walske to scale their business. Medallia has since become one of Sequoia’s single-largest investments ever and leads the Customer Experience Management space it helped create. Join Amy and Borge as they discuss what it took to build their company into the trusted  partner of some of the world’s leading brands — and a transformative workplace for its employees.
