Hotel Shattuck Plaza Crystal ballroom
2086 Allston Way
Berkeley, CA 94707
At the Drupal Business Owners Summit, you'll learn how to start and grow a business centered around Drupal. If you're new to Drupal and don't know whether it's right for your business, you'll hear case studies of how Drupal measures up to other CMS platforms, and how it can help to reduce operating costs without sacrificing usability.
We've got a great program scheduled that's full of tips, techniques and best practices from some executives at of the most successful Drupal businesses here in the Bay Area and elsewhere (complete list of speakers to come).
We'll also teach you how to incorporate your business, hire and fire employees and contractors, and how to manage the process of attracting and satisfying customers.
We look forward to hearing your feedback and what you'd like to see and learn at the business summit. Please click on this link to let us know your suggestions for the BADCamp Business Owners Summit.
