Inventors Forum Speaker's Series
Speaker - Dan Jenkins
Please join us for a lively discussion on marketing. Dan will be speaking to us about branding and positioning your products.
About Dan: The technology bug bit me at 5, "running" the mainframes in my dad's data center (really just pressing some colored buttons). Fast-forward and we were launching Lotus 1-2-3, the killer app that kickstarted the PC revolution. Not even 10 years later, my team at Logitech brought "digital photography" to the market with the first grayscale & color digital cameras -- and ironically, we could barely give the cameras away... It was impossible then to envision the sea change that we had set in motion...
I still seek out those big and impactful ideas that make life more meaningful, enjoyable and memorable. Whether advising and nurturing the next generation of entrepreneurs, building impactful pitch decks, creating compelling branding or developing go-to-market strategy, I thrive in the startup domain. Leveraging 30+ years of battle-tested experience (inclusive of nine startups), I collaborate with emerging technology companies -- transforming big ideas into viable and sustainable businesses.
► Pioneered digital photography; launched the market's first digital cameras (1993)
► Pioneered real-time OTA web & wireless sync on Blackberry & Windows Mobile (2005)
► Pioneered interactive mobile advertising (2007)
