The Battle for the Marketing Cloud
Tuesday, October 22, 2013 from 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM (PDT)
San Francisco, CA
Startup CEOs on taking a chunk of the skyrocketing marketing technology budget.
Join Mike Maples Jr., Managing Partner of Floodgate Fund, and a panel of CEOs for an in-depth discussion on how their companies are battling for a piece of the marketing budget. Open bar and appetizers will be provided!
Gartner predicted last year that CMOs would spend more on technology than CIOs by the year 2017. That’s been validated by recent startup acquisitions, IPOs and funding in the marketing software industry.
Enjoy drinks with CEOs from all areas of the marketing budget - event marketing (DoubleDutch), data analytics (KISSmetrics) marketing automation (Genius.com), and influencer marketing (Traackr). They will share their experiences selling to the CMO, debate the rise in marketing tech budget, and explain how companies can set themselves up for success.

Doors open at 6:00 pm, and the panel starts at 7:00 pm. Tickets will be available onsite for $35 - credit cards preferred!
