Hi there, I've worked in plenty of big companies and start-ups. You'd probably be more interested in talking with me for my work in marketing although I do have a background in enterprise IT.
Key Startups would be:
Zeborg (acquired by Emptoris) which was funded for $50MM to do data analytics and strategic sourcing of indirect corporate spend.
Challenge Games (acquired by Zynga) which was funded by Sequoia and did social online games where I did marketing and customer acquisition.
Cheezburger, Inc (the home of LOLcats and internet humor) which has investments by Madrona, Foundry and Avalon where I ran ecommerce and herded cats.
Big company companies would be:
Dell, EDS, Real Networks
I'd love to chat. Feel free to email me or stalk me throughout SXSW! I do have mentor sessions at http://mentor.sxsw.com/mentors/319
