Tien Tzuo

Founder and CEO

Moderator: John Pletz, Senior Reporter, Crain’s Chicago Business

In our everyday lives, we are witnessing a big decline in ownership -- everything from books to music to cars. Companies like Spotify and Netflix have led the way, but soon, consumers and businesses could end up subscribing to nearly everything: software, transportation, retail services, manufacturing equipment and healthcare.

Join Tien Tzuo, CEO and founder of Zuora, to learn how the shift to a recurring-revenue model really works – and how you can nail the transition to disruption-proof your business. Collectively, subscription businesses are growing nine times faster than the sales of companies in the S&P 500, according to Tzuo.

Attendees will receive a copy of Tzuo’s USA Today, LA Times and Amazon best-selling book, SUBSCRIBED: Why the Subscription Model Will be Your Company’s Future - and What to Do About It. The first 100 registrants will receive signed copies.
