The Promise and Pitfalls of Outsourcing Technology Development

Where: Nelson Center for Entrepreneurship

When: TBD

If technology is your secret sauce, can it really be entrusted to a third-party? Offshore development holds great promise, but there are horror stories as well. Hear from Dave Durfee, founder of Bay Computer and adjunct professor at Brown University, as he offers a primer based on decades of experience. Durfee will address:

  • When does paying more per hour actually save you money?
  • When does paying the lowest possible price for coding actually spell disaster?
  • How does intellectual property change the dynamic?

Durfee will be joined by a group of panelists, including local entrepreneurs and technology developers, who will share their experiences and take questions from the audience.
