Silicon Valley may be known as the mecca for tech start-ups, but Manchester-based Dyn, an internet performance company, is bringing a technology focus to the Queen City.
On May 23, XPX New England (XPX NE) will bring together business leaders and advisors from across New England to hear how Dyn went from a dorm-room start-up to a major technology company with more than 350 employees, and clients that include Netflix and Zappos.
Recently acquired by Oracle, Dyn was started in 2001 by Worcester Polytechnic Institute students Jeremy Hitchcock, Tom Daly, Tim Wilde and Chris Reinhardt. Daly, along with Kyle York, Dyn chief strategy officer, and Dave Allen, Dyn general counsel, will share the history of Dyn, explore how the company grew, the process of being acquired by Oracle, and what the future holds.
“From Dorm Room Start-up to International Tech Company” is the second XPX NE event to take place in New Hampshire. The first event, Business Ownership Transition, took place in November 2016, and boasted a standing-room-only crowd. As XPX New England expands membership into the Manchester area, they hope to foster a collaborative community of business owners and advisors who support the full lifecycle of a business.
Moderator: Gerri King, Ph.D., president, Human Dynamics Associates
Speakers: Tom Daly, co-founder, Dyn; Kyle York, chief strategy officer/GM, Dyn; Dave Allen, general counsel, Dyn
Registration: XPX New England members: free. Nonmembers: $35
