October Events Round-Up: Apptentive at Home and Away
It is the start of a busy few weeks here at Apptentive, and with a healthy list of events at home and abroad we thought we would kick off this week (and #Dreamforce #DF14 !) with a short round-up of where we will be and how to find us.
Starting off the annual Salesforce San Francisco SaaS festival TODAY, our fearless leader CEO Robi Ganguly (@rganguly for those seeking to meet up with him this week in SF) is participating in a panel titled, “GROW OR DIE! From Idea to IPO: Fund and Grow your Startup“. The panel kicks off a track at Dreamforce focused on Startups and is located at the Westin St. Francis at Noon today. If you’ve just arrived in San Francisco for the big event, or you’re a resident looking to learn as much as you can about startup success strategies, head on over to check it out. Robi is joined by an impressive array of other young company leaders. Even if you can’t make the panel discussion today, Robi will be in San Francisco attending DF14 and taking meetings all over the city this week — consider this an open invite to track him down on Twitter or email and connect.
Later this week, we have both education and social events to highlight. First, on Thursday October 16th at 10:00 a.m. PT / 1:00 p.m. ET, Robi will be participating in a great webinar (really a Google+ Hangout) hosted by our friends at the Application Developers Alliance on the topic of “Measuring Customer Lifetime Value: Know Your Customers, Increase Revenue“. If you are a mobile application program manager, product manager, or marketer who is accountable to your company for more than just app downloads/installs, don’t miss it.
Later that evening, we are back in the real world as we host our usual monthly ‘Appy Hour‘ event here in Seattle for the mobile development and management community. This month we are delighted to be holding the event at Rhapsody’s corporate offices! We hope that many of our friends from previous Appy Hours will come out for the evening and meet new colleagues, share ideas or projects they are working on, and enjoy themselves. Appy Hour is our way of saying “Thanks” back to the mobile development and marketer community here in our hometown – the more the merrier, and find out more + RSVP here.
And that’s just this week!
Looking ahead to the near future, we will be continuing the ‘Appy Hour‘ events in San Diego (on November 6, building upon a successful and well-attended event recently – also @EvoNexus) and with a soon-to-be-announced ‘Appy Hour’ in Los Angeles as well. We will update all of our Angelinos in the next week or so via this blog and our social channels once the Los Angeles event is finalized!
Lastly, wanted to let everyone know that we’ve started cataloguing all of our planned Events and speaking activities on our “Press and Events” page on the site. If you ever are wondering where we are headed and what we’re doing IRL, feel free to visit that page and click through to the Meetup or Conference/Event pages to find out more and plan accordingly.
All the best from us, and we look forward to seeing you in person at one of these events in the next few weeks – or in attendance virtually at the LTV webinar.
[Oh and while we have your attention, the big Seattle Interactive Conference is happening this week as well. Although we won’t be sponsoring or speaking at it, if you’re going to be in town and want to meet up please get in touch or just leave a comment below with your Twitter handle. Cheers.]
