Onavo: from grandma’s pick to Facebook’s pick
In the 2011 Startup Festival, Onavo was selected as grandma’s pick after showing off the company’s first product, an app that helps people who use data roaming save money. From that initial concept, the company evolved more products, discovered and built a business – and last October was acquired by Facebook. Guy Rosen, Onavo’s co-founder & CEO who today leads product management for the Internet.org initiative at Facebook, will share his notes from the startup journey. Join Guy and Startupfest’s Alistair Croll for a candid conversation on what it takes to go from an idea to a nine-figure deal.
