Business applications don’t always work with ads, so what are the alternatives?
That’s the subject of a timely panel with startup founders and investors that the WTIA is hosting at 5 p.m. Sept. 25 at the Bellevue Westin (underneath the Microsoft sales offices). Tickets are $50 or members or $70 at the door.
Madrona Venture’s Scott Jacobson will moderate “Cashing In on Web Services: The Display Ad Model and Beyond.” Panelists include:
— Matt Hulett, chairman and chief executive, WidgetBucks
— Andy Liu, chief executive, BuddyTV
— Mike Metzger, chief executive, PayScale
— Spencer Rascoff, Zillow chief financial officer and VP of marketing
— Tony Wright, co-founder and chief executive, RescueTime
