Exist Goes Global

I joined the invitation through Abe Olandres to attend the Exist launch/presscon.

I finally got to meet the chairman, Winston Damarillo, who read my old blog post. I pointed out the Filipino Connection of his previous company, Gluecode Software, sold to IBM. This did not come out in the press.
He had an interesting talk/discussion about outsourcing/offshoring to the Philippines, developing the local talent pool, and the topic of the launch: growing global.

He had an open forum with Jerry Rapes, his GM; Eric Manlunas, a Fil-Am venture capitalist; and Steve Nathan and Chuck Ames, his partners and investors.

We also chatted about open source Java and the other tech companies in his venture portfolio.
Now, we’re having a small blogger meetup at Starbucks Shangri-La: Abe, Noel and Gail.
