Despite all the negative connotations and political double-speak, outsourcing is now a well-entrenched part of the Silicon Valley business model.
What may be different this time is the ease with which outsourcing can be incorporated into businesses of almost any size. What used to be the tool of large businesses is now available and likely found in medium, small, and even very small businesses.
What is it that made this possible? How are small/tiny businesses leveraging this new global paradigm within the context of the current economic reality? How are outsourcing firms coping and/or encouraging this trend? What does that mean to your competitive landscape? To startups and entrepreneurs?
CSPA (Chinese Software Professional Association), GABA, BayBrazil, and Silicon French are proud to present an interactive panel of experts and protagonists, who have successfully integrated outsourcing into their business. Come hear what they have learned, and learn for yourself how to deal with this new shift in the competitive landscape.
