Once again the Valley is buzzing with startups, new ventures, and concerns about a bubble.  Our next Forum will look at how the move to mobile and the explosion of entrepreneurial activity is once more driving innovation.

For the App Economy, we want to look at two big questions:

  1. What drives the Mobile and App Economy?   
  2. How is the rise of the App Economy - and mobile technology more generally - changing the rest of the economy?
