Notwithstanding a few billion-dollar acquisitions, Web 2.0 is still maligned by many for being the next wave of Internet hype without a business model attached to it. But as the technologies and definitions of Web 2.0 mature and get sorted out -- distributed services, AJAX, crowd-sourcing, mash-ups, etc. – the business models are starting to emerge. This CXO Forum will bring together real entrepreneurs to discuss and share real business models and how to make payroll in the Web 2.0 age.

Leading the discussions will be Scott Rafer, a 7-time serial entrepreneur. Scott is currently co-founder and director at Mashery (www.mashery.com) and he has been helping Internet publishers and users develop the ‘next big thing’ since 1995. As CEO of MyBlogLog and Chairman of Winksite, Rafer helped deliver services for media publishing and discovery. Previously, Rafer was CEO of Feedster from 2001 to 2003; he co-founded WiFinder, an online tool for finding public wireless access; BookBroadband, the broadband hotel finder; Fresher Information, a real-time search engine using RSS back in 1999; and FotoNation, a creator of connected photography solutions.

Before the 1995, Rafer headed-up the Internet products group at Kodak Hollywood, worked in investment banking at Needham & Company, and graduated from the management of technology program at the University of Pennsylvania.

This event is a collegial luncheon designed to foster discussion in a confidential format among founders, officers and managers (CEO, CFO, CTO, CMO) of startup technology companies. We request that participants be involved in the management of a technology company.

Advance registration only, limited to 25 registrants, no walk-ins admitted.
