Internet pioneer John Little '80, the founder and CEO of Portal Software, Inc., will deliver the G.S. Beckwith Gilbert '63 Lecture on Wednesday, April 5 at 7 p.m. in McCosh 10. His lecture is titled "All I Needed to Know in Business I Learned at Princeton, or, After Fifteen Years, I'm an Overnight Success."
Portal, founded in 1985, evolved as one of the country's first Internet service providers. In 1996, the company introduced Infranet. software, a customer management and billing program designed specifically for the needs of the Internet and emerging communications service providers. Little's achievements prompted Forbes magazine to put him on the cover of a recent issue.
