Internet 2.0, the Next Generation:
A ‘Web’ of Opportunity

What’s hot and what’s not in the world of the web?

We’ve gone from dotcom to dotbomb and now we’re back! Where are the Internet pioneers going to take us next? Our April panel will give us some insight into what we should expect from Internet deals in the next few years. Who is getting funding? Who should be getting funding? What are the new measures for success in the Web (Could it be “cashflow” and “revenue” instead of eyeballs and traffic)?

Hear from successful San Diego Internet entrepreneurs about what they’re doing with their companies and how they got funded. Get some insight from VCs and bankers who are looking for Internet-based deals. Gain insight from some of the Web’s best-known brands about how they weathered the difficult times, and how they’re now exploring almost unlimited horizons. How are you going to capitalize on this Web of opportunity?
