One of the biggest ongoing challenges for telecom entrepreneurs is navigating the shifting, complex ecosystem. With no single model for success, our entrepreneurs have to make and remake strategic decisions to refine their business model and keep pace with change. One of the key benefits of locating in Silicon Valley is being able to be patched-in to the fabric of the ecosystem, and to be aware of the shifts early. We benefit both from a critical mass of telecom companies and the collaborative environment unique to the Bay Area. But you have to put up your antennae and tune in if you want to separate the signal from the noise. Set your dial to Chris Shipley, co-founder of Guidewire Group and Executive Producer of the DEMO Conference, as she talks us through managing marketplaces and ecosystems in the telecom environment. Chris, who is known for guiding technology entrepreneurs, will lead this lunch discussion to discover whether you need to create your own platforms, APIs, and channels or whether you should be partnering to get scale and penetration.
