Tuesday, September 19, 2006 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

 Learn from CSUN business school alumni, Steven Katz, on how JPL/CalTech software startup Oak Grove Systems was revived after becoming victim to the 2001 technology crash. As a key member of the Oak Grove executive team, Steven lead the sales and marketing efforts which helped grow the company from 3 to 60 customers and from zero to over $1 million in annual sales within 1 year resulting in Oak Grove’s successful acquisition in 2005. Steven will share how the patterns and insights learned at Oak Grove can help any company revive themselves – whether from the ruins like Oak Grove or just from stagnant growth.

Discover insights on how to:

  • Adjust to changing market conditions over the weekend
  • Shift to a truly customer-focused company
  • Rely on outsourcing to stay nimble and minimize overhead
  • Leverage internet marketing to drive sales
