San Jose, California (PRESS RELEASE – June 26, 2009) — How are Bay Area IT companies developing their new products when revenues are flat, credit is tight and capital is shy? On July 21, Dave McClure (of Startonomics fame) will ask panelists from three companies to kick off a discussion about Doing More With Less. McClure, who has just completed his “Geeks on a Plane” tour of Tokyo, Beijing and Shanghai, says, “The Bay Area connection to Asia – as a market, as a resource base, and as a destination and source for capital – somehow plays into this recession, and the way out of it.”
McClure will lead panelists Elliott Ng (Founder and VP Marketing of Uptake); Stan Kwong, (former head of worldwide developer marketing for IBM); and VP from developer community oDesk. Dinner will follow the panel discussion. Each table has a moderator – top executives from Google, Adobe, Institute for the Future, and The China Business Network – to keep conversations going among executives who attend the event. Details and registration, limited to 48, are at http://morewithless.eventbrite.com.
