Activate’s Wolf Says Millennials Are Big Merger Target (Audio)

Michael Wolf, managing director and co-founder of Activate, is seeing two trends in so-called "millennial panic" mergers and acquisitions. He says companies are buying what he calls "internet unicorns", companies that have scaled very quickly, that have huge user bases and that would be very difficult for big companies to replicate – a group he says is very small. Wolf says the second trend is what he’s calling "aqui-hires", that is companies buying small companies for their engineers and developer talent. Wolf speaks with Bloomberg’s Kathleen Hays and Vonnie Quinn on Bloomberg Radio’s "The Hays Advantage."
