MySpace Co-Founder Chris DeWolfe sits with Mashable's Chief Strategy Officer Adam Ostrow to publicly discuss for the first time his challenging transition from leading the web's former social media giant into disrupting the mobile games industry and competing with likes of Zynga, King and Gree. This volatile business has been rife with boom and bust stories that echo the rise and fall of MySpace -- Chris reveals his scientific formula to "de-risk" this new industry by sharing lessons learned from MySpace and how he's applied them to achieve new growth and early-stage success of his fast-growing new venture, SGN (Social Gaming Network).
Attend this rare fireside chat to hear first-hand the valuable experiences of one of the web's most influential entrepreneurs - and get answers to the tough questions and challenges facing anyone looking to find new success in unfamiliar territory.
This SXSW Gaming Session at the Long Center is FREE and open to the public. However SXSW Interactive, Film, Gold and Platinum badges gain priority seating.
