Today, I’m pleased to share that MuleSoft has entered into an agreement to be acquired by Salesforce.

At MuleSoft, we took this day as an opportunity to celebrate women who have inspired us.
I have wanted to be a salesperson ever since a Silicon Valley CEO guest lectured my favorite college class at UC Berkeley. “We’re always selling,” she said. “If you want to be a leader of any kind of organization, you need to build credibility and learn how to influence people.” I knew I wanted to be a leader, so I figured that that launching my career in a sales organization would challenge my intellect, broaden my understanding of business,
