MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., July 30, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Frost & Sullivan, the growth partnership company announced that its flagship Growth, Innovation and Leadership (GIL) event in Silicon Valley will feature a program for the firm's investor, advisor and economic development clients for the first time. This program is designed to help investment professionals identify the most attractive opportunities in new technologies and markets, and tap into networks driving innovation across different applications and business models globally.
Frost & Sullivan's global community of senior executives will convene at this year's GIL 2014: Silicon Valley event on September 15 to 17, 2014 at The Fairmont in San Jose, California. Participants will share, engage and inspire a continuous flow of new ideas, along with fresh perspectives to address global challenges. The Investor program will run on Tuesday September 16 and will focus on the innovation space for venture and growth capital investors and advisors.
"We have run a number of investment opportunities events around the world, which have been extremely well-attended and highly rated by our financial clients, so I am delighted that we are offering this program within the framework of our GIL Silicon Valley event this year," said Frost & Sullivan Global VP of Financial & Business Services Andrew Calvert. "Our goal is to bring together the latest market coverage, and expertise as well as our advisory capabilities and understanding of a commercial advisor. GIL's depth and breadth coverage leverages tremendous granularity of work across various markets and seeks to identify subjects that are not widely recognized or priced in to public markets."
The Investor program will showcase analysis from Frost & Sullivan's Technical Insights group which provides intelligence and analysis across multiple categories, including emerging and disruptive technologies, patents, R&D breakthroughs, and future market forecasting and impact analysis.
"We recently completed our annual TechVision analysis, where 503 technologies were profiled using a rigorous quantitative assessment and the 50 most impactful technologies selected, will be highlighted at GIL," said Frost & Sullivan VP Technical Insights Leo O' Connor. "Additionally, the Investor program will dissect four trending topics with a detailed drill-down of the ecosystems, challenges, developments, players and investments. We are excited to share these insights with our investment clients and have them participate and contribute to this discussion in a much greater way this year."
