From PandoMonthly's website:
You can't run an event series exploring New York's burgeoning tech scene for too long without having Dennis Crowley as a guest. Crowley is the founder and CEO of Foursquare, but you may know him from BestBuy and Gap ads and pretty much every story about the ascendency of New York's tech scene.
While New York has done a better job than the Valley of building blogs and content companies and has several notable exits in the world of ad tech, the ecosystem is still waiting for that big Valley-style consumer Web home run. From its earliest days, many people have hoped Foursquare would become just that-- the home-grown company that Mayor MIchael Bloomberg can point to as fueling the tech ecosystem, rather than the New York offices of Valley giants like Google and Facebook.
But while the location app started life as the darling of the New York media and West Coast tech bloggers alike, Foursquare has seemingly struggled to take its service mainstream and build a company around all those checkins and badges.
In an in-depth conversation, we'll talk to Crowley about these challenges and his journey as an entrepreneur. Whether you are bullish on the company or not, it's hard not to root for Crowley. He's a visionary when it comes to location based services, building products around that theme long before it was trendy, and he famously turned down pricey acquisition offers for Foursquare after his disappointing experience selling his previous company Dodgeball to Google.
Our fireside chats are always centered around an entrepreneur's personal journey, and Crowley has a doozy of a story to tell. I expect a fantastic conversation.
This will be our fifth PandoMonthly in New York, and I'm really excited with how our New York events have been taking off. A lot of that is due to our loyal New York readers who've been evangelizing the series and bringing new friends every time. We really appreciate it.
