The AlwaysOn Network is taking the Silicon Valley show on the road, and the first stop is Sydney, Australia! AlwaysOn Australia is bringing the brightest and most innovative technology minds together under one roof at the Doltone House, Darling Island Wharf, April 11th-12th, 2013. This two-day gathering is where top executives, entrepreneurs, and venture capital investors from Australia, the United States, and other key economic regions meet to exchange ideas and do business.
Michael Moe, one of the world’s preeminent authorities on growth investing, and Don Basile, CEO of Violin Memory and leader in eliminating hard drives, are joining the stellar line up of American and Australian executives in the 2013 AlwaysOn Australia program. Mr. Moe’s passion lies in elevating innovation in education, and he will be presenting a keynote on Thursday, April 11th on the trends and developments disrupting the current education space.
Storage system provider Violin Memory will be represented by CEO Don Basile, when he shares his views on big data, in-memory computing, fast data, and social commerce during a keynote on Thursday, April 11th. Mr. Basile is an entrepreneur to watch, as he has managed the growth and sales of companies valued at more than $2 billion. Violin Memory’s recent acquisition of appliance maker GridIron Systems has met the demand for the “bigger, faster, stronger” customers constantly in demand.
