Silicon Forest Technology and Financial Forum kicks off tomorrow
It’s rare, in these parts, to have events that combine traditional high tech, startup tech pursuits, and venture capital concerns all in one fell swoop. But that’s exactly the focus of TechAmerica’s Silicon Forest Technology & Financial Forum.
And lo and behold, the time for that event is nigh. So if that sort of line-up sounds interesting to you, you’re going to want to get registered for he Silicon Forest Forum this Tuesday and Wednesday out at the Intel Jones Farm campus in Hillsboro.
The Oregon Technology Investor Tour and the Silicon Forest Forum have combined forces to create the Silicon Forest Technology and Financial Forum. This event provides a unique opportunity for the financial community to experience Oregon public and private companies, meet their management teams, and take company tours (if applicable). In addition, concurrent panel discussions on a range of technology management and sector specific issues will allow entrepreneurs and companies to gain insights into opportunities for their growth and success.
Who’s there? All kinds of folks. But some of the panels that might strike your interest—or names you might recognize—include:
- Mobile Applications: Mobile Computing Anyplace, Anywhere, Anytime with Jason Grigsby of Cloud Four, Ben Jacobsen of Mobspot, Dave Shanley of Crowd Compass, and Kiyo Kubo of Spotlight Mobile
- Software as a Service: Saas in the Cloud with Brayn LeBlanc of Jive Software, Clive Cook of RNA Networks, Bill Pierznik of Alto Law Group, and Patrick Lightbody of BrowserMob
- Open Source Goes Mainstream with Deb Bryant of OSU Open Source Lab, Stuart Cohen of Collaborative Software Initiative, and Brian Kissel of JanRain
In addition, Jive Software and Tripwire will be giving private company financial presentations.
Sound interesting? Well, there’s still time to get signed up. Or you can always register at the door. You can buy a single-day pass for $99. Or you can get access to both days for $155. There’s also a special dinner keynote dinner you can attend for $50. That’s a lot of good content and connections for $205.
