Semiconductor, Electronic System Design Ecosystem Community Invited at No Cost
MILPITAS, Calif. (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) —
WHAT: Hosts a webcast featuring Jim Hogan, managing partner of Vista Ventures, LLC., and Simon Butler, CEO and founder of Methodics, on bootstrapping a startup to profitability. (This replaces the in-person event originally planned for April 3 at the SEMI headquarters in Milpitas, Calif.)
WHEN: Friday, May 1, from 11 a.m. P.D.T. until noon P.D.T. The online format will include a question-and-answer session at the end.

Hogan and Butler will explore how Methodics, initially a bootstrapped startup, became profitable by creating a new market segment called IP Lifecycle Management (IPLM). They will describe Methodics’ ability to leverage the Enterprise Software product lifecycle management (PLM) segment into a design-centric IPLM workspace for chip designers.
