Making Money from Free Software Panel 11/14/07 in Menlo Park

Making Money from Free Software Panel 11/14/07 in Menlo Park

I am on a breakfast panel on November 14 down in Mountain View at the Orrick offices down in Menlo Park. Being that I get back from Japan the day before with the requisite jetlag I should be in rare form.

Here are just a few of the exciting topics:
  • What does "commercial open source" mean and how is it different from "open source"?
  • What benefits can I expect from releasing my product as open source? What are the costs?
  • Does my choice of open source license matter?
  • What do VCs think of the open source model?
  • Does an open source company have better exit potential?

Moderator: Jim Black, Partner, Orrick

Panelists include:
Bob Walters, President & CEO, Untangle
Andrew Aitken, Managing Partner, Olliance Group
Dave Rosenberg, CEO & Co-Founder, MuleSource
Philippe Cases, Venture Partner, Partech International
