By Invitation Only

In 1998 we created a unique invitation-only conference for the top 100 leaders in the Enterprise software space.  This charitable initiative gave back over a million dollars in 10 years to great causes, and featured industry personalities like Marc Benioff, Aneel Bhusri, John Chambers, Craig Conway, Scott Cook, Hasso Plattner, Tom Siebel and many other leaders.

Much has changed since the last gathering in 2007.
