Last month, NeuGroup’s two tech-focused groups came together at a summit sponsored by Fitch Ratings and RBC Capital Markets to meet old friends in person for the first time in over two years—and make some new ones.
The two tech groups range from Big Tech giants to specialty tech firms and many in between. Bringing all these companies together is part of our grand plan to expand and reshuffle our tech groups, while also providing opportunities for them to network with each other.
- The groups convened for a dinner, kicked off with a keynote from George Davis, group alum and former CFO of Intel, Qualcomm and Applied Materials (three Tech20 member companies), who had a clear message for all in attendance: Don’t wait for an invite to impact strategy.
Sessions throughout the following day featured discussions on the rate outlook, capital structure, cryptocurrency and our trademark: A sponsor-free projects and priorities session.
- Walk and talk foursomes also mixed and matched new and old contacts, providing a safe space to share tips, advice and knowledge—or even just to connect on shared issues.
Thanks to support from our sponsors, Nick Heslip and the team from RBC Capital Markets and Scott Cassie and team from Fitch Ratings, the meeting was a successful way to unite our oldest group and our most promising.
