Movaya CEO Phil Yerkes to Speak at Alliance of Angels Spring Forum

Movaya CEO Phil Yerkes will be a panelist on May 8, when the Alliance of Angels holds its Spring Forum at RealNetworks. Here's the overview from their Web site:

2007 Alliance of Angels Spring Forum- Emerald City: Game On!

In an October 2006 report, Sperling's "Best Places" listed Seattle as the "#1 city for US gaming". With industry leaders such as Real Networks, Nintendo, Microsoft and Sony's Gamehouse calling the Emerald City home, we are poised to become a creative and commercial hub. With the advent of online and mobile gaming, many companies can participate in the gaming "ecosystem." What does this mean for start-ups and investors? How can entrepreneurs monetize this opportunity? How do you determine the best early-stage gaming industry investments?

Expert panelists include:
Garrett Link, GM GameHouse Studios (subsidiary of RealNetworks)
Cameron Myhrvold, Partner, Ignition Partners (venture capital perspective)
Derrick Morton, CEO, Flowplay
Phil Yerkes, CEO, Movaya

Tuesday, May 8, 2007 3:00-5:00 p.m. (Reception to follow)
RealNetworks, Forum and Atrium
2601 Elliott Avenue, Suite 1000
Seattle, WA 98121
[$35 for Alliance of Angels members, $50 for non-members]

This should be a great opportuntiy to meet some folks from both the gaming and Angel communities. Let us know if you'll be there.
