1 PDUs for Leadership
Harpaul Sambhi will lead an interactive session unique to all others that have been offered by the Chapter thus far. YOU as the audience will have the opportunity to steer this dialogue in places you would like to learn more about, particularly on how a serial entrepreneur would tackle obstacles. Having sold his first software company to LinkedIn and an entrepreneur-in-residence at Bain Capital Ventures, Harpaul sits at the intersection of silicon valley's technology sector.
He will share his experiences with building non-VC lifestyle businesses, bootstrapping to $MM, acquisition to LinkedIn, and Partnering with Big co's to sell products. Harpaul frequently advises founders and future founders in unlocking the mental barriers in starting a business, how to focus, build a product-market fit and grow either in a full time or part-time capacity.
Harpaul Sambhi is an entrepreneur and current angel investor. He bootstrapped his first business, Careerify, serving over 250,000 users globally at customers such as Microsoft, Deloitte, Unilever, Blizzard Activision, and SpaceX. Careerify achieved profitability within it's 2nd year of business and was acquired by LinkedIn in 2015, marking LinkedIn's first acquisition outside of the United States. Harpaul joined LinkedIn and rebuilt Careerify and oversaw LinkedIn’s HCM initiative, and led product development for LinkedIn’s partner ecosystem in the recruitment space. After LinkedIn was acquired by Microsoft, Harpaul joined Microsoft’s Dynamics product team to build a best in class HR technology suite.
During his professional career, Harpaul has been fortunate to write a book, Social_HR, published by Carswell/Thomson-Reuters, analyzing the impact of social media on the HR Industry. This led to some very fortunate speaking opportunities across North America and Europe, and becoming a lecturer at the Kellogg-Schulich School of Business.
