Update: The first batch of party tickets have sold out. Our next set of tickets will be released next week.
“Mobile first.” It’s a mantra we’ve been hearing increasingly. For many developers and startup founders, they start with a mobile product first, and web second, if at all. We are seeing this across games, social, photo, payment, group messaging, media consumption, local deal apps and more. It’s just the way things are done.
The rise of the iPhone and Android mobile app economies has validated this approach. Other platforms are fading away or making a last-ditch effort to assert themselves. And don’t forget the iPad and other tablets, along with the mobile Web which is trying to keep pace with HTML5 and other technologies. The mobile web versus native apps debate is getting particularly heated
On July 29, we’ll explore all of these issues and what it takes to go mobile first during a half-day CrunchUp in Palo Alto, preceding our 6th annual summer party at August Capital. We are selling tickets right now for $150. It will be an intimate affair with 250 people. A ticket gets you into the summer party at August Capital afterwards as well. We are also opening up 150 of those summer party tickets for $40 each.
More details to come on the CrunchUp. If you are a mobile startup that wants to launch there, we have a few slots. Shoot me an email.
Here are the logistics.
