On Tuesday, April 15, OLC attended the “New York Mobile Startups” held at the offices of Colley Godward Kronish LLP located at 1114 Avenue of the Americas, New York, NY. The event featured a discussion panel of five including Semil Shah (Swell/Haystack Fund), Steve Cheney (Estimote), Sarah Paiji (Snapette), and Jordan Cooper (Wildcard, Lerer Ventures) discussing the state of mobile generally. Moderated by Shai Goldman (Silicon Valley Bank, ex-500 Startups), below is a brief rundown of the highlights of the night.
Topics discussed included trends in mobile including mobile commerce, trials and tribulations in growing a loyal user base, and the costly, iterative high stakes in mobile vs. website based tech companies. Panelists spoke about their personal experiences running startups that were eventually acquired and lessons learned along the way. To learn more, visit: http://bit.ly/QpIggX
