Apps to Platforms Conference

(This is a third party event)

Go Ahead. Make Your Choice.

It's a question all entrepreneurs are asking themselves: how do you decide whether to build an application or a platform company? There's a lot you need to know before you make that decision. You need to know the business, marketing, and technical considerations, as well as the risks and benefits of each model.

At SVForum's upcoming Apps to Platforms conference, industry luminaries will share insights and predictions for the latest trends on API delivery and adoption. Join developers, entrepreneurs, and thought leaders for a day of panel discussions, keynote speeches, demo tables, and lightning pitches.

    I would be very interested in attending if we had speakers relevant to startups and platforms. Blogger Sangeet Chowdry would be a good start.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
