P2P 101, An Overview of the P2P Landscape

Larry Cheng, Associate, Battery Ventures

Track: Business Track
Date: Wednesday, February 14
Time: 1:15pm - 1:45pm
Location: Grand Ballroom

In this session, we will make sense of the over 100 companies in the p2p landscape. We will dive right into who the companies are, what they are doing, and which segment of the market they are focusing on. We will also cover at a high-level the offering, value proposition, and challenges within each segment - covering all the infrastructure and application players. Then we will take a close look at where the venture dollars are going, which areas are the most competitive, and who the the emerging leaders are. The purpose of this talk is not to dive deep, but to give context to attendees who are newer to this market, and hopefully make the rest of the conference all the more valuable.
