Mobile business models that work – Feb 21st, 6:30PM, Santa Monica

LAVA Mobile presents an inspection of mobile business models from three thought leaders within the local mobile community.  The event will be a panel session featuring Andy Vogel (Tribune Company), Shuki Lehavi (Gumiyo) and Peter Marx (Qualcomm), moderated by Lori Kozlowski (former LA Times journalist).  The group will be examining the current trends in mobile business models – what works, what doesn’t and what is over the horizon.

  • What are some unsolved business problems that mobile might solve?
  • Where in the mobile space are businesses beginning to generate new or incremental revenue? 
  • What are they doing? All our panelists are touching the local SMB space in some way. 
  • What are the problems there, from a service provider and advertiser perspective and how can mobile solutions solve those?
  • What’s missing in the mobile ecosystem that is hindering success for some business models?  Point-of-sale technology for mobile coupon redemption, for instance.
  • What technology is missing?
  • The first meeting of the Los Angeles Venture Association Mobile Strategic Information Group is open for registration.   Tuesday, February 21, 2012, 6:30pm -8:30pm, Working Village, 212 Marine Street #100,  Santa Monica, CA 90405.  Register at the LAVA website. LAVA Members and their guests attend free; $25 for non-LAVA members.

    We are looking forward to a great evening of information sharing, networking and the formal launch of LAVA Mobile for LAVA members and the general business community of Los Angeles.  LAVA Mobile and this inaugural event are generously sponsored by Ernst &Young.
