Panel to Discuss Tech Investment at TPI Aspen Forum
Contact: Amy Smorodin
August 2, 2010 – Technology and communications industries help drive economic growth, and policy changes can affect investment. Will proposed regulation affect investment in communications infrastructure? How are investors in media and content companies reacting to changes in distribution methods? Do venture capitalists and Wall Street have different opinions on the effects of policy on investment? Analysts and investors will discuss the environment for investment across the Internet ecosystem during the discussion panel “Views from Wall Street and Silicon Valley: The Effects of Policy on Investment,” at the TPI Aspen Forum. The event is scheduled for August 22-24 at the St. Regis Aspen Resort.
