Palo Alto, CA – March 4, 2015
The hottest new companies continue to come from Silicon Valley – but the story is no longer about new technology. Most of the big success stories over the last decade have been about companies that used technology to disrupt an existing market. As a leading hub for innovative new companies, Silicon Valley accounts for one-third of all venture capital investments in the U.S. and an increasing number of cross-border M&A transactions.
Woodside Capital Partners will be hosting a special, invitation-only event on June 11 to kick-off the annual conference of M&A International at The Ritz-Carlton in San Francisco. The event will feature some of the most interesting leaders in Silicon Valley – from a leading forecaster who explores the dynamics of large-scale, long-term change to emerging technology trendsetters focused on technology that’s impacting our future to a fixture in the valley to catch a colorful glimpse of how Silicon Valley really gets down to business over a cup of coffee in an eclectic place. The event will focus on how Silicon Valley’s technology will impact our future, and in turn, the future of technology M&A.
Speakers at the event will be:
Paul Saffo, Forecaster
Josh Crumb, Co-founder of BitGold
Michael Chui, Partner of McKinsey & Company; McKinsey Global Institute
Jamis MacNiven, Owner of Buck’s of Woodside
