A FEW WORDS

About the Forum

A unique thought leadership event, the Forum offers a packed programme for visionaries, business leaders and managers; highly rated by delegates, this is the must-attend technology event of the year.

300+ attendees, predominantly a mixture of CEO’s/Managing Directors of Scottish companies and IT Directors/Senior Managers from blue-chip organisations in financial services, energy and the public sector.

This year we are delighted to welcome Eric McAfee, an entrepreneur and venture capitalist, who has founded companies in renewable energy, oil & gas, telecom, networking and software. Eric is the Chairman of McAfee Capital in Cupertino, California; a managing director at Cagan McAfee Capital Partners; and has invested in more than twenty companies through Berg McAfee Companies.

We’re also hugely excited to welcome Dave McCann, VP AWS Marketplace, Service Catalog & Migration Services, Amazon Web Services.  Dave is now in his 4th year of leading the rapidly growing AWS teams that are simplifying and transforming how commercial and open source off the shelf software is packaged, migrated, delivered ,consumed and asset managed by enterprises and small businesses around the world so they can innovate faster.

More speakers will be announced soon, keep checking back!

ERIC McAFEE

Growing enterprises require capital at every stage, from inception to post-IPO debt funding.  “An entrepreneur allocates resources such as capital and technology that are not currently under his control.”  We will review examples of how leaders build companies by acquiring the capital to build management teams, develop products and then market those products.
