    Presentation Overview

    Start-ups and Corporate Investors: Dave Stubenvoll, Adobe

    Our August speaker is Dave Stubenvoll, who has been on both sides of the table during corporate investment negotiations. He's been CEO of two successful start-ups, and led corporate development at two leading corporations. Come hear his advice on starting companies and dealing with large companies as an acquisition candidate.

    Dave is an entrepreneur in residence at Adobe, currently leading a new business initiative. Prior to his EIR stint, he was Director of Corporate Development, responsible for Adobe's acquisition strategy and execution.

    Dave was co-founder and CEO of Freeworks, a small business services start-up which raised several million dollars in venture capital and was acquired by Intuit. He was also Intuit's Director of Corporate Development, involved in several acquisitions, and ran Intuit's small business services division, which included their payroll business. Prior to Intuit, Dave was CEO of Galt Technologies, a financial services technology start-up, acquired by Intuit, and in venture capital.

    As usual, we will restrict attendance to the first 25 founders and CEOs that sign up, so sign up fast!
