    Cash in at scale on the esports explosion Dean Takahashi, Lead Writer, GamesBeat Recorded: May 9 2018 60 mins
    The esports market is on fire. Last year 43 million people watched the League of Legends world championships, a multiplayer fighting game. And it's not a niche market of teenage boys in basements. A recent report found that 31 million people watch esports tournaments in the U.S., and more than double that -- 68M -- in China.

    And the question is -- how do you monetize that at scale?

    Look to the wild success of the Asia-Pacific esports companies. The companies who stage events like China’s 2017 Riot Championships, which posted more than 32 million viewers, have been able to compel customers to actually pay to view content, and even tip players, with the right streaming and payment technologies.

    Don’t miss this VB Live event for keen insights from leaders in the space on how U.S. companies can effectively operate globally or begin to expand globally. You’ll learn how to confront the challenges that scaling your audience can pose and improve it, from west to east, as you look to capture more of the global audience opportunity.

  • Work It: The Secret for Success for Women in Business Today
    Work It: The Secret for Success for Women in Business Today Carrie Kerpen, Founder and CEO, Likeable Media Recorded: May 9 2018 60 mins
    When Carrie Kerpen co-founded Likeable Media in 2007, the social media agency was one of the first of its kind. Six years later, when she stepped up to become CEO, times had changed. The market was crowded, the competition was fierce, and she couldn’t help but compare herself to the heads of other agencies, all of whom were pretty much the same: Loud. Extroverted. Male. In order to reinvent her company to keep up with the changing times and come out on top, Carrie had only one choice: She had to work it.

    What is working it? Working it is about understanding who you are, what you want, and what you bring to the table. Working it means refusing to compare yourself to others and instead focusing on your own unique super-powers. Most important, working it is the key to unlocking the biggest secret for achieving success: There is no one right way. There is only your way.

    Key takeaways include:
    •How to use your gut to make smarter decisions, faster
    •How to tap into your network to help you avoid blind spots
    •How to make your weaknesses work for you, not against you
  • Is Threat Hunting the Next Frontier: Separating the Hype from the Reality
    Is Threat Hunting the Next Frontier: Separating the Hype from the Reality Dr. James Stanger Chief Technology Evangelist, CompTIA Recorded: May 3 2018 78 mins
    One of the more interesting-sounding job skills today is that of the “threat hunter.” Let’s talk about the activity of “threat hunting,” and deconstruct it a little bit. The idea behind threat hunting is to proactively look for adversaries and for traces of their activity. So, is threat hunting all that it’s cracked up to be? Is looking for trouble really the best approach today? It’s very possible that the one key element of threat hunting is one fundamental assumption: That you’ve already been hacked, but you just don’t quite realize it yet. In this presentation, James will discuss the benefits and drawbacks of “active defense,” and where it fits in with other security activities.

  • Beyond POCs: Fostering long-term collaboration between Incumbents and FinTechs
    Beyond POCs: Fostering long-term collaboration between Incumbents and FinTechs Nektarios Liolios, Hélène Alunni-Botteri, Nigel Verdon, Sarah Kocianski Recorded: Apr 25 2018 50 mins
    There’s been a lot of talk about Banks and Financial Institutions appetite for working with FinTech companies and other startups. Yet successful collaboration requires commitment and agility from both sides – FinTechs and Incumbents, and most engagements with large organisations frizzle out because of the incapability of creating real collaboration projects. Between differing cultures, vastly different infrastructures and an ever changing compliance playing field, collaboration between banks and FinTechs is far from simple, derailing many proposed partnerships.

    Is it enough to have the appetite for working with startups? Startups can provide enormous value but can incumbents identify what the value is? Or is it just the matter of observing, keeping up with trends? What does it take to create meaningful collaboration between FinTech startups and incumbents? What are the key challenges they face?

    Join us with expert panel:

    - Nektarios Liolios, Founder & CEO of Rainmaking Colab & Startupbootcamp FinTech

  • GDPR : A Threat or An Opportunity?
    GDPR : A Threat or An Opportunity? Pradeep Prasad Recorded: Apr 19 2018 61 mins
    The world has moved in the last 100 years from the first flight into the sky to flights to Mars; there is complete digital control over our lives. Control is by the person or entity who has retrievable custody of our data which can be misused for gains and / or to harm us. What was most prevalent form of societal intimacy during our childhood in 1960s and 1970s, that everything was known about everyone in a neighbourhood; we have come a long way. We are at a stage where we ask - why do you need to know about me? If there is a need with an agreed upon purpose, only sufficient data is provided which satisfies the need with a caveat that the data would not be used for any other purpose.

    European Union (EU) has done a commendable job 2 decades back — to protect its citizens from prying eyes, whether harmful or not — through replace the 1995 Data Protection Directive. In parallel, government of India also took commendable steps in this direction through InfoTech Act 2000, which was amended in 2008 with additional safeguards. Though India InfoTech Act is a general purpose all-compassing act, it has sections to protect data privacy strengthened further in 2011. However, both EU GDPR and India InfoTech Act can leverage each other for mutual benefits.

    In this Webinar, Pradeep will share various aspects of GDPR and the diversified thoughts looking GDPR as a threat or an opportunity.

  • FinTech Funding on the Rise
    FinTech Funding on the Rise Alix Brunet, Tomi Fyrqvist, Gareth Jefferies, Francisco Lorca, Triin Linamagi Recorded: Apr 18 2018 59 mins
    Global FinTech financing hit a new record in 2017. We saw the biggest FinTech funding jump in Europe – the growth over 120%, yet US early stage FinTech deals fell as investors made more concentrated bets. Early-stage FinTech deal share dropped to a 5-year low in 2017 according to CBInsights latest report. There’s also been a sharp increase in later stage FinTech funding by corporates backing nearly half of the deals. Is this enough evidence to say that investors are pulling away from early stage FinTech Investing? Why have we seen the rise in corporate scale-up programs? Where is FinTech funding heading in 2018? What are the FinTech trends to Watch next? What's VCs take on cryptocurrencies?

  • Start Ups - Diverse By Design
    Start Ups - Diverse By Design Juliet Eccleston, Co-founder and CEO at AnyGood? Recorded: Apr 6 2018 28 mins
    When you’re developing and refining a proposition, it can be easy to focus simply on what most people need and and how you can provide it as quickly and cost efficiently as possible. The 80/20 rule right?

    Those involved in start ups are in the unique position of being able to re-write the rule book. They can be unconstrained within their design process by traditional corporate boundaries and move beyond something that works for most, to something that is both inclusive and extraordinary.

    In this live webinar, I’ll share some of the key techniques we used to develop AnyGood? as a proposition that was “Diverse By Design”. This not only resulted in us having a far more ethical proposition, but one that was more desirable too.

    If you’re in an early stage start up, or are in a larger organisation and have a proposition that’s being developed and refined, tune in and I’ll share my learnings.

But you usually have to have already worked with those systems to then be able to get jobs working with those systems -- a struggle for any junior-level job, but a particularly strong one in the tech space. This is where mentoring comes in. Each of these awesome women has benefited from being mentored and benefit from giving back and mentoring.

    Join us (or sign up to listen to the recording later) to learn the best way to find a mentor or mentee/mentoree and how to leverage that relationship so you're both getting the most out of it. You'll learn about informal and formal guilds that support that mentoring, and what companies should do to facilitate these benefits. And you'll hear personal stories from these women who have built solid careers in tech on the shoulders of experience and support.
