Industry Cloud Forum Recap – June 3, 2014
Last week Emergence hosted an Industry Cloud Forum at the City Club in San Francisco for companies building business cloud solutions focused on specific industry verticals.
This was the first event of its kind, and we were thrilled to gather together over 100 CEOs of leading industry cloud companies across a dozen sectors.
We have received a number of requests for the “Industry Cloud Rising” opening presentation by Gordon Ritter (Emergence Capital) and the “Learning from the Leaders” keynotes by Peter Gassner (Veeva), Marcus Ryu (Guidewire), and Dan Yates (Opower).
Gordon Ritter (Emergence Capital): Presentation: Industry Cloud Rising
Learning from the Leaders: Peter Gassner (Veeva), Marcus Ryu (Guidewire), and Dan Yates (Opower).
We also heard great feedback about our two panels covering go-to-market strategies and platforms. A number of attendees commented how they shared similar opportunities and challenges with others in the room, in spite of being in completely different industries.
Go-to-Market Strategies: Brian Donahoo (Appfolio), Charles Thornburgh (Civitas Learning), Peter Hess (Advent Software), Santi Subotovsky (Emergence Capital)
Leveraging Platforms: Adam Gross (Heroku/Salesforce), Ariel Kelman (AWS), Chris Yeh (Box), Jason Green (Emergence Capital)
We hope this is the first of many gatherings of industry cloud leaders, so please share any feedback about how we could improve the format or content. We are excited to continue building the industry cloud together with you.
