Internet Publishing Pioneer Eileen Gittins Shares Her Passion for Enabling Technologies that Take Business Outside the Box 

Co-Host Brad Forsythe interviews Eileen Gittins, Founder, President and CEO of Blurb. Throughout her career, Eileen has been at the intersection of the Internet, consumer and enterprise software, imaging systems, search, and digital photography.  A passionate advocate for enabling technologies that offer new ways to do valuable things, Eileen is now democratizing publishing for the rest of us with her new company, Blurb, a software and services company that passionately believes in the power of books:  making, reading, sharing and selling them. Eileen has served as CEO of several pre-IPO venture-backed companies in Silicon Valley, including Personify -- an e-commerce data mining and analytics company, and Verb – a context-based search engine company. Each was acquired by Accrue and Attenza respectively. At Qbiquity, a viral marketing platform company, Eileen served as Board Chairman and interim CEO, where she was instrumental in negotiating the merger of Qbiquity into Collabrys.  As CEO, she has raised over $40MM in venture capital throughout her career. Most recently, Eileen served as interim executive management at Viant, a San Francisco-based investment-banking firm in the technology and media sectors.  She has also served in executive positions at Wall Data; Pivotal Corp, an Eastman Kodak spinout; and Kodak's Business Imaging Systems. Eileen is an experienced public speaker and panelist, and has been the subject of feature articles in publications as varied as the Wall Street Journal, Newsweek and Fortune Magazine, and in July of 2006 in New York Times and Fast Company. For entertaining advice join hosts, Ray Schilens and Brad Forsythe, for a lively and informative discussion.
