TOPIC: Floodgate Partner on Decisions For Greatness

Great startups and great products are rarities - but they are not random events. How do entrepreneurs turn big ideas into sustained success? Most importantly, what steps should you take to stay focused on the ultimate prize? Floodgate Partner Mike Maples will discuss how to make decisions for greatness. With nearly 30 years of experience, Mike will share his learnings from successes and failures in some of the most important digital businesses that have emerged in recent history.

Featured on the Forbes Midas List since 2010 and was named one of "8 Rising Stars" by Fortune Magazine, Mike is an investment guru with years of experience in finding the next big thing in tech. Before becoming a full-time investor, Mike was involved as a founder and operating executive at back-to-back startup IPOs - including Tivoli Systems (acquired by IBM) and Motive (acquired by Alcatel-Lucent).
