We've adapted this popular feature from YAPC (Yet Another Perl Conference) to give you a whirlwind tour of the companies in the peer-to-peer space. Each Lightning Talk session gives a dozen companies and projects pursuing related markets an opportunity to give a 5-minute elevator pitch. Presentations will be followed by questions and evaluations by a panel of experts.
Lightning Talks in the business track give you a quick way to evaluate possible investments, the depth of competition in a given area, and the quality of the key company executives.
Lightning Talk presenters will also be available at specified times for more detailed follow-up.
