From Startup to the Big Leagues: How We Survived the Cisco, HP, and Cadence Acquisitions

We’ve each worked at startups that were subsequently acquired by big companies. We’ve learned a few things along the way.

In this session you will learn:

  • Our experience before, during and after the acquisition process.
  • What you can do now to make potential transitions easier for you and your team.
  • The many facets of preparation and adaptation.


Meg Miranda and Joe Meyers have a combined 50+ years of technical writing experience in and around Silicon Valley. We like our work and our jobs, and we enjoy helping others. We’ve worked at many companies large and small, including Apple, Reuters, Visa, Oracle, Informix, HP, Ampex, IBM. We are now both in the Data Virtualization Business Unit at Cisco.
