Scaling for Global Markets!
April 17, 2019 @ 4:00 pm - 8:30 pm
‘But will it scale?’
Perhaps the most commonly heard phrase in Silicon Valley! Let’s explore ‘scaling’ through the lens of supply chain management executives of the world’s largest, fastest growing and most exciting companies. Is a supply chain optimized when speed is prioritized over efficiency? Or do business and supply chain goals differ? Your registration covers an opening keynote by Christopher Yeh, Co-author (with Reid Hoffman) of Blitzscaling, Founder of Blitzscaling Ventures and General Partner of Wasabi Ventures Global. Christopher Yeh will deliver an opening keynote and autograph his book, “Blitzscaling” for all participants!
April 17, 2019 – 4:00 – 8:30 p.m.
Golden Gate University
536 Mission Street, 4th Floor Law Auditorium
San Francisco, CA 94105
(Short walk from Montgomery St. BART station – recommended)
Christopher Yeh, Author
“Blitzscaling: The Lighting Fast Path to Massively Valuable Companies”
‘Whether you are a founder, a manager, a potential employee, or an investor,… understanding blitzscaling will allow you to make better decisions in a world where speed is the critical competitive advantage. With the power of blitzscaling, the adopted son of a Syrian immigrant (Steve Jobs), the adopted son of a Cuban immigrant (Jeff Bezos), and a former English teacher and volunteer tour guide (Jack Ma) were all able to build businesses that changed—and are still changing—the world.”
