From venture investments, partnerships, and the M&A perspective, we’ll look at what’s on the horizon for technology development and commercialization. Digitalization, the internet of things, data analytics, additive manufacturing, and new business models are accelerating the broader manufacturing industry. Thinking strategically from a financial perspective and combining that with technology trends will be key to aligning today's business and engineering decisions with tomorrow's opportunities.

Topics covered include:

  • Explore the business and technology cycles that are shaping the industry landscape
  • Discuss what other technology-enabled companies have done to maximize growth, successfully pivot, or overcome challenges in their industry
  • Unique examples from across the value chain on what options exist for fundraising, strategic partnerships, and paths to technology commercialization and growth
