Steven Masur is Senior Partner at MasurLaw, a US-based technology and venture law firm with clients worldwide.

Steve founded Masur Law in 1994 to focus on the tectonic shifts in law and business caused by emerging internet technologies. Steve’s diligent counsel has helped some of the breakthrough digital entertainment and internet companies go step by step from start to successful exit, whether through M&A, IPO, or just ongoing business success. Fascinated with the new business models being developed by these companies, Steve focused on creating the contracts that made them run, and working out the legal problems holding them back. Steve has stuck with this passion and built a law firm which has attracted some of the best legal minds in digital media and technology exploitation.

As a result, Masur Law has been on the forefront of each successive wave of new media technology, including cable and digital TV, internet delivery, mobile content, games, Web 2.0, mobile Apps, and now the savvy exploitation of brands and content across all media platforms. He has also applied the sometimes brutal lessons learned from emerging technologies to a wide variety of other industries, always building upon these lessons to drive more quickly toward his client’s success in any industry. In a pinch, or to avoid them, Steve and the MasurLaw team are who you want by your side.

Finally, Steve has taken the lead in many initiatives aimed at helping the law adapt to new technology as it develops. Steve chairs the New York Bar’s Technology and Venture Law Committee and has served on a variety of trade and industry association boards, such as The International Association of Entertainment Lawyers, The Industrial and Technology Assistance Corporation and The New York Tech Meetup.

Ron Close, CMO – NUAGE

“The Nuage Social Business Collaboration Launch is an excellent opportunity to learn first-hand how social media and

business are coming together to improve the way we work. This truly is a game changing advancement in business

collaboration and innovation,” says Chris Atkins, President and CEO of Nuage.

Close brings more than 20 years of experience in the PLM industry to Nuage and views Social Business Collaboration as an exciting initiative that holds the promise of transforming the way companies leverage business applications.

His extensive experience and creativity is central to leading the Social Business Collaboration strategy for Nuage. Prior to Nuage, Close led international marketing organizations for Siemens and Autodesk and founded a private company in Tokyo, Japan which focused on go-to-market strategy and execution for international clients.

Nuage’s Social Business Collaboration platform enables companies to use social media interactions to exchange thoughts and ideas in a way that is integrated with business processes, like product lifecycle management (PLM), without the high costs and complexity. The company’s unique approach to Process Management via a social business collaborative, on-line business application suite allows users the flexibility and interactivity lacking in today’s management solutions.

Nuage Café, Nuage’s initial product offering, is a secure, fast and effective solution to file sharing. Café enables the casual business subscriber to check-in and check-out documents so virtual teams can seamlessly collaborate and ideas can compliment rather than collide. By bringing personal social media practices into the workplace, Nuage Café creates a more natural environment for communication – making it more than simple file sharing. The basic Café subscription will be FREE to users for up to 2GB of space.
