I'm still reeling from losing a deal I was deeply passionate about to a huge public company, but all hope is not lost
This was a great read... almost felt surreal as if surfing the undulating nature of your negotiations along with you while reading through. Hopefully the end game is in your favor ! Wishing you the best. The bit about Acquihiring is interesting . Does acquihiring mean your product gets a lifeline and stays extant or does it mean sacrificing your "baby" to become what most entrepreneurs call - a "corporate shill"! It might merit a separate post.
Future content: Diving into your growth marketing strategies. I've seen you do it on twitter when comparing FB ad spending vs Shopify App store. Diving into the metrics you look to optimize for would be super interesting, especially if both companies are different relative to their marketplace (Shopify app vs stand-alone SaaS), in long content form would be awesome.
