Speaker: Jerry Shen, Director of Engineering, Fantasy Sports
I will talk (for the first time) about my experience getting acquired by Yahoo, and the transition between doing my own startup and working at Yahoo. Most app developers are entrepreneurial, and I think I can offer some insight into what it takes to succeed as an app entrepreneur both individually and as part of a larger company.
I worked for 6 years at a big company before going off on my own and starting a bootstrapped mobile app business (Bignoggins Productions). At bignoggins, I made the #1 selling sports app on both Google Play and iTunes. Recently, I was acquired by Yahoo and am currently leading their mobile fantasy sports efforts. I love to connect with and share with other entrepreneurs, and I'm trying to make Yahoo! The absolute best place for entrepreneurs to come and take their ideas to the next level.
