Atlassians co-CEO Scott Farquhar will join us at TC Sessions: Enterprise

Few companies have changed the way developers work as profoundly as Atlassian. Its tools like Jira and Confluence are ubiquitous, and over the course of the last few years, the company has started to adapt many of them for wider enterprise usage outside of developer teams.
To talk about Atlassians story from being a small shop in Australia to a successful IPO and its plans for the future the companys co-founder and co-CEO Scott Farquhar will join us at our inaugural TechCrunch Sessions: Enterprise event on September 5 in San Francisco.

Farquhar co-founded Atlassian with Mike Cannon-Brookes, in 2001. It wasnt until 2010, though, that the company raised its first major venture round ($60 million from Accel Partners). Even by that point, though, the company already had thousands of customers and a growing staff in Sydney and San Francisco.
Today, more than 150,000 companies use Atlassians tools. These range from the likes of Audi to Spotify, Twilio and Visa, with plenty of startups and small and medium businesses in between.
Its no secret that Farquhar and Cannon-Brookes consider themselves accidental billionaires, so its maybe no surprise that in 2015, ahead of Atlassians successful IPO that valued it at well above $10 billion, he also signed on to the 1% Pledge movement.
Today, Farquhar also makes his own venture investments as part of Skip Capital, which he co-founded.
TC Sessions: Enterprise (September 5 at San Franciscos Yerba Buena Center) will take on the big challenges and promise facing enterprise companies today. TechCrunchs editors will bring to the stage founders and leaders from established and emerging companies to address rising questions, like the promised revolution from machine learning and AI, intelligent marketing automation and the inevitability of the cloud, as well as the outer reaches of technology, like quantum computing and blockchain.
