Panel Discussion on Investing in a Volatile World-How to See Opportunity and Value Risk

(WASHINGTON) May 24th, Omni Shoreham Hotel – It’s day two, the energy is still very high and it’s time to get down to business.  The general session is starting.  It’s a panel discussion dealing with the topic of “Investing in a Volatile World – How to See Opportunity and Value Risk”.

The panel is moderated by Dan Primack, Senior Editor of Fortune Magazine.  The panel itself comprises of Peter Barris, Managing Director of NEA, Cameron Lester, General Partner Azure Capital Partners and Tony Palcheck, Managing Director of Motorola Solutions Venture.

The panel discussed the current venture market, the quality of tech startups available to invest in and the recent facebook IPO.  Crowdfunding and its value was also discussed.  But at the end of the discussion it was clear that three things were important to the venture and investment community when it came to technology startups.  Cloud, Big Data and Mobile.

It was stated that any startup with a good idea, great executive and a good product in either of these spaces had a real shot at being funded.  And that’s the point of it all.  Every year MAVA sponsors this conference to bring the best and the brightest together in the Mid-Atlantic region to have such discussions.
