Have you ever wondered how you can help make the project or product you are working on becoming "the next big thing"? What are some strategies to succeed in today's high tech world for market leadership or as an entrepreneur? How can you help your product make a big impact at your company or to the world around you?

Come hear Tony Seba, the author of "Winners Take All: The 9 Fundamental Rules of High Tech Strategy," explain the (non obvious) reasons why 21st century high tech winners like Symantec, Craigslist, Skype, Salesforce.com, Apple, Netflix and others beat tough competitors and gained market leadership.
