“THE CLOUD IS THE NEW NORMAL.” (PETER COFFEE, GROWTH AND EXIT STRATEGIES CONFERENCE)
The 2009 growth and exit strategies conference was a huge success by any measure. Headlining speakers from VM Ware, Google, Yahoo, VeriSign, salesforce.com, and other leading companies brought insight and excitement to the event. Registrations topped 90. The conversations during the breaks were lively and useful. This was an exciting event for anyone who is interested in capitalizing on a down market in order to maximize wealth when things start to recover.
The basic premise was that we have not seen this exciting opportunity to create wealth in almost 10 years. When the markets are peaking, the only people to benefit are those who already have ownership of the very shiny thing that everybody wants to buy. Most of us are still in the process of creating a shiny thing. In the market when the competition is struggling and funds are scarce, we have a unique opportunity to increase market share, unity ahead of the market leaders, and forge partnerships that will ultimately yield an M&A deal.
