Dmitry Karpovich, Oxagile CEO, attended the Global Technology Symposium in Menlo Park, California. The investment conference was held on March 28-30, 2012, in Silicon Valley and attracted both investors, investigating new business opportunities in emerging markets, and start-ups, outlining their business ideas and forging indispensable connections to kick off their ventures.
Dmitry along with other corporate leaders joined this global technology networking platform to delve into the latest market trends and innovations in the industry, explore networking opportunities and establish new strategic alliances with IT counterparts and companies, looking for technology and business partners. Keynote presentations and spotlight discussions were interlaced with fireside chats and close-up receptions, which created suitable casual business settings to make necessary connections.
Russian engineering talent and entrepreneurs as a most promising niche to tap into were in focus of this year’s conference. The list of organizers and juries featured key people among venture capitalists and equity funders, including DFJ VTB Aurora, Ernst & Young, Blumberg Capital, Javelin Venture Partners, and many others. The symposium also lined up governmental authorities, policymakers and non-profit organizations, sustaining innovative ideas and providing incentives for scientific development in emerging destinations for R&D and technology advancements.
The Skolkovo Foundation, a Global Innovator Competition panelist at the Global Technology Symposium 2012, also became one of the key sponsors of the GTS in an attempt to uphold Russian technology community and drive investments to most innovative Russian start-ups.
Participation in the Global Technology Symposium was a great opportunity for Dmitry to network with other opinion leaders and technology gurus, and share Oxagile successful experience of working with start-up companies, doing business in an innovation-driven, yet highly-competitive environment and converting new ideas into profitable enterprises via tech savvy expertise.
Oxagile CEO discussed with its counterparts the most effective ways to partner with entrepreneurs, help them shape their business plans and pitch them to stakeholders, and later on collaborate with such companies when they become recognized industry leaders.
