DATE :  September 27, 2012 @ 4:00-5:30PM  ABSTRACT:

Drawing on his experiences at key companies (Twitter, Google) and his investment in others (AirBnB, Square, etc.), Elad Gil will explore three big shifts happening across the web:
1. Social media is reshaping how content and commerce are distributed on the web. How do Pinterest, Twitter, Facebook impact what users do on the web? How have social media models changed in the last year?
2. How ecommerce models have shifted: 2-sided versus 1-sided marketplaces (e.g. AirBnB, Uber,...) and the emergence of next generation web businesses (Warby Parker, Nasty Gal, etc.).
3. SaaS and the developer. The enterprise sales model is shifting due to the consumerization of enterprise software. What does the future hold?
