Titans Breakfast Series featuring Michael Chasen

An NVTC Signature Event

November 15, 2012

Join NVTC on Thursday, Nov. 15, for a Titans breakfast featuring outgoing Blackboard Inc. President and CEO Michael Chasen, who will share lessons from starting a company and growing it to $1.7 billion in 15 years.

Chasen, who recently announced he will be stepping down as Blackboard's CEO at the end of the year, has provided the leadership to take Blackboard from a startup company with just one product and a handful of clients to a $1.7 billion company with 1,700 employees, thousands of clients, eight global locations and more than 160 partnerships. As co-founder and CEO, Chasen oversaw Blackboard's more than 20 acquisitions and worked with Providence Equity Partners to take the company private in 2011. His expertise managing fast-growth Internet software companies coupled with a passion to enhance education through technology has been critical to Blackboard's success.

Register today to learn first-hand how Chasen has positioned the company for growth, through innovations, acquisitions and partnerships!
