At today’s annual “State of Technology” luncheon sponsored by the Tech Alliance and attended by 750+ regional leaders, Madrona Venture Group’s Tom Alberg interviewed Steve Singh of Seattle’s Concur Technologies, acquired by SAP in late 2014 for $8.3 billion.
UW CSE came up several times in the conversation:
Regarding funding for increased enrollment: “UW CSE could double its degree production and Concur would hire all of them!”
Regarding funding for a new building: “It’s a few tens of millions of dollars in a $40 billion annual budget. Give me a break!”
Thanks, Tom and Steve, for your tremendous support!
