Last week I had the opportunity to spend a couple of days at the Georgian Partners' 2017 Portfolio Company Conference. Georgian Partners is a venture capital firm whose investment thesis is that certain tech trends change every aspect of a software business over time including business models, product plans, people and skills, technology platforms, pricing, and packaging. Georgian invests in those companies best positioned to take advantage of these trends and then works closely with those companies to develop and execute the strategies necessary to make it happen. Applied AI is one of the trends they're investing in, as are Conversational Business and Security First.
The focus of their 2017 conference was the practical application of those primary thesis areas. During the event, attendees engages directly with peers, thought leaders and practitioners of each discipline. I interviewed several of the speakers from the event, which we're excited to present to you as our GPPC podcast series.
