Transitioning from a startup tech firm to growth company isn’t easy. Trust YCharts. Over the course of 9 years, they’ve experienced many of the roadblocks that come along with evolving from a group of “jack of all trades” types to a larger business with more specialists. In this ITA Tech Talk, YCharts' panel of sales, product and technology leaders will discuss how to scale effectively across functional teams, be smart with your communication and properly align your team to remove the silos in your business that can slow you down.

Attendees will learn how to:
