Progress Partner?s Senior Managing Director, Chris Legg, joins Localogy for a webinar to discuss M&A.
Localogy M&A Roundtable Series – Foursquare, Podium & GoDaddy
The last few weeks have seen lots of activity in funding and M&A activity in the local commerce and SMB Saas sectors. This is counterintuitive for a period in which investor confidence has started to hibernate. But still, many of these deals are logical, and some kicked off before we had a global pandemic on our hands.
So to break down the drivers and dynamics, we invited domain experts to the Localogy table. And because there are too many deals to tackle in one roundtable, we chose the three most notable ones. They include Foursquare?s merger with Factual; GoDaddy?s acquisition of Neustar?s registry business, and Podium?s funding.
And our expert panel? Kind enough to join us were Chris Legg, senior managing director at Progress Partners, and Luca Sechi, VP of corporate strategy at Endurance International Group. Both have lots of perspective and experience in tech-sector investing and M&A activity. So we teed them up to do their thing.
