The Startup Success Podcast

The Startup Success Podcast

This week Bob interviews Don Dodge, now part of Google and its Developer Evangelism Group. Until very recently Don was the very high-profile Director of Business Development for Microsoft’s Emerging Business Group. Now, Don is working on both scaling Google’s relations with startups and developers to entirely new levels of support, market opportunity, certification and training, and going head-to-head against Microsoft for enterprise wins for Google’s browser, cloud and mobile platforms.

“2010 is going to be an eye-opening year,” Don said in this wide ranging interview. This is one podcast you don’t want to miss.

Speaking of 2010, Bob has a few suggestions – more or less – for the new year, and Pat points out new Microsoft Front Runner programs coming soon.

  2. Hey Bob, thanks for yet another great resource and thanks to Don for making the effort! It did all amount to be a bit scary as far as startups go I thought… sounds like more of the same “we’re not evil” but we want to dominate everthing Google line.
