This panel will address the all too overlooked, yet invaluable skill of technology business development and the importance of building powerful, and effective relationships. Technology often offers us quick and efficient solutions to our business needs, however the central need to any new business owner/entrepreneur is a vendor relationship that is built on trust. That can only be engineered by “person to person.” This panel seeks to debate the most effective means by which these relationships can be established, maintained, and ultimately make them a factor in your business' successes.
