Invest in the frontiers of tech.

This event is intended for professional and qualified investors only.  The conference schedule consists of panel discussions and presentations throughout the morning, to highlight opportunities to invest in Artificial Intelligence (AI), the Internet of Things (IoT) and Augmented and Virtual Reality (AR/VR) software companies, directly, or through private equity and venture capital vehicles.

We’ll also discuss how investing in these areas can help diversify portfolios, through the use of assets that are generally uncorrelated with the public markets.

There will also be opportunity to meet the venture capital and private equity investors behind Suir Valley Ventures and Sure Ventures PLC, and meet executives from key companies at the leading edge of each of these technology areas.

At the end of the morning, attendees will better understand the technologies, the market opportunities for technology companies in these areas, the outlook for these sectors and how to invest in them.

Attendees will also have the opportunity to meet the founders and senior management of ‘frontiers of tech’ companies, who will be on hand to demonstrate their ground-breaking products.
