After selling her previous company EqualLogic to Dell for $1.4 billion in 2007, Paula Long is at it again with big data startup DataGravity.

She will be joining us at Women 2.0 Conference on February 14, fresh off the news of raising Series B funding for DataGravity from investors including Andreessen Horowitz, Charles River Ventures and General Catalyst Partners.

Meet the woman who sold her company to Dell for $1.4 billion on February 14 at the 2013 Women 2.0 Conference! Her previous company EqualLogic was the largest cash acquisition ever of a VC-backed company. Don't miss the woman behind the success story as she shares her experience at the Women 2.0 Conference next month! She's the first to admit her path to successful entrepreneurship (the win/win exit of her startup) was not linear. She had changed majors several times in college, then took a sabbatical after college only to land in a dead-end job. With a knack for math and rejuvenated to learn more, she went back to college to earn her bachelor's in computer science and began her career... and the rest as they say is history.
