We’re releasing another 100 tickets now to our July 30 summer party at August Capital. Act fast if you want one, these things sell out in less than an hour.
If you don’t get a ticket, don’t email me begging for one. Come to our Social Currency Crunchup earlier that day instead. A ticket to the CrunchUp gives you entry to the party afterwards.
We’ve got a great lineup of startups and investors ready to explore the rapidly growing realms of social commerce, the local Web, Geo, and game mechanics.
- Yelp CEO Jeremy Stoppelman and Google VP of Product Management John Hanke (who is in charge of Google Places, Google Maps, Google Earth, and local search) will discuss how the Web is taking over the Yellow Pages for local businesses and how mobile is accelerating that trend.
- Groupon CEO Andrew Mason will explain what’s behind the explosive growth of social buying talk about how the online coupon business is changing with News America Marketing president Chris Mixson.
- Twitter product manager Shiva Rajaraman (who runs @earlybird), Foursquare’s biz dev dynamo Tristan Walker, and CityGrid Media’s Kara Nortman will discuss how social media and commerce can go hand-in-hand.
- Tapulous founder (and now Disney Mobile exec) Bart Decrem and SGN CEO Shervin Pishevar will talk about what makes social and mobile games addictive and how game mechanics are filtering beyond games to other types of products. You can see the full agenda here
