Master B2B founders Andy Hoar and Brian Beck host a heated debate featuring two teams of industry experts with opposing opinions on whether businesses should be doubling down or hunkering down on technology investments right now.
Representing Team Double Down is Michael Scholz, Vice President of Product and Customer Marketing at commercetools and Riccardo Caruso, Vice President, Worldwide eCommerce and Digital Solutions at Cepheid, both strong proponents that risk delivers rewards.
