A VC Take on OpenStack Growth and Opportunity Across Asia

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Our panel of APAC-based venture capitalists will discuss the growth of OpenStack across Asia, with a focus on startups developing technology within the OpenStack ecosystem.

Our panelists will share their personal criteria for evaluating startups to fund, and provide insight to problems not yet addressed within OpenStack today, i.e. opportunities for the next wave of open-source software enthusiasts and entrepreneurs.

Drawing on real-world stories of success (and the occasional stumble), they will answer questions about how OpenStack is being used by industry to reduce cost and time-to-market, as well as about new business opportunities created by OpenStack.

Finally, our panelists will look at the new communities and ecosystems emerging around the OpenStack core.
