Startup founders on new business models, besides ad-supported

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

(I should have waited to attend before writing this column on Google, Microsoft and ad-supported software)
