Sponsored by Businesswire

Tipalti, the leader in global payables automation, announced that it is hosting a live virtual event on May 13 at 11 AM PDT (GMT-7) featuring former Twitter CEO Dick Costolo and Managing Partner of VC firm 01 Advisors. In the era of COVID-19 and a perpetual work-from-home environment, Dick will share guidance on navigating economic uncertainty while running a high performing, efficient operation.

Described by Business Insider as “one of Silicon Valley’s most impressive CEOs,” Dick took over as COO of Twitter in 2009, after the 2008 recession, and was installed as CEO in 2010 serving until 2015. Today, he’s leading 01 Advisors, a VC firm focused on disruptive startups (of which Tipalti is a portfolio company).

The session will feature attendee-submitted questions about leading startups and mid-sized organizations through today’s uncertainties while still positioning the business for the future, what investors and venture capitalists looking for, and how 01 Advisors is guiding their portfolio companies through the pandemic and beyond.
