Share Global eCommerce: The World Behind the Buy Button

Event Details

Global e-commerce has come a long way in a short time thanks to technology and services that enable small local organizations to work with large global organizations at various levels of the e-commerce ecosystem.

We have outlined a panel of experts who will share with us valuable information for navigating the complexities of global e-commerce and reveal some of the details behind the “buy” button! From learning how they sell their products online, to providing products for others to sell online, and learning about back-end solutions that enable participants in the global e-commerce network to optimize productivity.

Join us on Wednesday, June 20 as we will be accompanied by ecommerce experts from PayPal, describing trends in global purchasing and payments;  TrackR, leveraging ecommerce to keep track of things around the world; MineMine Kids, retailing unique clothing for children worldwide; FastSpring, helping businesses around the globe grow through their cloud-based e-commerce platform; and TrackStreet, providing online brand protection and market analysis.


  • Melissa O’Malley, Director, Global Initiatives, PayPal
  • Christian Smith, President and Co-founder, TrackR
  • Carolyn McCall, COO and Co-founder, MineMine Kids
  • Chris Lueck, CEO, FastSpring
  • Andrew Schydlowsky, CEO and Founder, TrackStreet


This program will be moderated by Mike Smith, CTO, FastSpring.

MIT Enterprise Forum of the Central Coast

The Central Coast MIT Enterprise Forum hosts the region’s top business and technology events. Each month, we bring together veteran business leaders and experts to host events designed to educate, inform and inspire entrepreneurs.

Our Mission
To promote a unique process and atmosphere to develop and strengthen the entrepreneurial community in the Central Coast through interaction with experienced executives who have successfully navigated the challenges of building an organization.

In 1986, the MIT Enterprise Forum of the Central Coast was established to serve the coastal business communities of Los Angeles, Ventura, and Santa Barbara counties. The Massachusetts Institute of Technology Enterprise Forum has 25 chapters worldwide, each offering unique programs and networking opportunities for entrepreneurs.

Early stage businesses face many common challenges. In case presentations, the Forum provides local entrepreneurs the opportunity to present their business plans during an open meeting before a panel of specially chosen business experts and an audience of peers and other people interested in business development. This Forum format provides the presenting companies an opportunity to receive feedback and suggestions for their businesses from experienced professionals.

Selected Topics
Special topic presentations address current and specific challenges facing early stage businesses. A special panel of entrepreneurs and industry experts is assembled for an in-depth “round table” discussion of the issue.


MIT Enterprise Forum of the Central Coast is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization registered with the state of California, supported by individual and community contributions. Tax ID/EIN# 77-0248019
