Almost every tech company dreams of being acquired by a bigger and better funded company. Besides proving that what you’re doing is worth it, and that your team/services are of value, it usually means a payday for time invested building the company. TechXpress, the company I worked for over 7 years, was acquired by SpendSmart Networks in September of 2014 for $1.6 million. TechXpress had two divisions: Web Services and IT Services. SpendSmart acquired the Webs Services division, while IT Services was purchased by Tim Synder, then chief technology officer of TechXpress.
