We’ve once again concluded another successful Varsity CEO Summit and the results are in: we know how to throw one heck of a shindig. Our Varsity CEO Summits, held four times a year in San Diego, Silicon Valley, Los Angeles and Boston, are designed to give like-minded CEOs the opportunity to raise concerns and share best practices in an intimate and comfortable setting. The goal is to foster dialog from leading IT leaders and investors, and provide them with the tools and insights that will help grow and scale their companies. The theme this year was disruptive technologies and their role in the changing economy and there were plenty of discussions regarding the direction that the IT industry was heading.
We’d like to thank everyone that attended, but we’d especially like to thank our guest speakers for providing entertaining and insightful presentations. This year we had a great lineup that included AITV general partners Bill M. Malloy and Brian Nugent, Integris founder Rich Effress, Spouting Rock Capital Advisors’ Blakely Page and mobile video and MMS expert James Citron. To these and all of our speakers we extend our utmost thanks for helping to make the summit a great one.
We also appreciated the chance to talk with everyone regarding our own themes that we’ve identified in the coming era of information technology. These themes, which include, Big Data, Pervasive Connectivity and Open Markets and Platforms, are growing increasingly important, and we’re excited to support and work alongside companies poised to take advantage of them. It was great to be able to speak our thoughts on these with everyone in attendance, and hear some of the other CEOs thoughts on the subject.
Of course we’d also like to extend our thanks to the beautiful Estancia Hotel in La Jolla, as well as our sponsors, Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati, TriNet, Silicon Valley Bank and Spouting Rock Financial Partners. If you’d like to learn more about the benefits of sponsorship for next year or what it takes to become a speaker, please feel free to contact us.
We hope that everyone who came had a great time and was able to discuss the current and future state of the IT industry in a relaxed setting. We’ll see you all next year.
