About the Roadshow
The OW2 Brazil Open Source Solutions Roadshow is an event aimed at triggering opportunities in the OW2 business ecosystem. Business development is the primary focus of the event, while the promotion of the OW2 code base and the development of the community clearly come second.
For this event, we are partnering with Softex and its network of local agents. OW2 and Softex complement each other perfectly: OW2's mission is to help foster a vibrant ecosystem for its members; Softex's mission is to help create business opportunities for Brazilian companies. With this initiative, OW2 and Softex are developing a seamless win-win relationship.
A well targeted audience of 35-50 attendees is expected at each of the three local events. Those attending will be from the regional IT ecosystems: potential partners, systems integrators, VARs and end-users.
For commercial open source companies, this roadshow is a unique opportunity to develop a channel approach and to extend market reach in a dynamic economy that is open-source aware. A highly cost-effective and time-efficient business development initiative.
For attendees, whether potential users or potential partners, it represents an unparalleled occasion to discover professional open source business solutions and to conduct face-to-face discussions with key open source project leaders and marketing executives.
