Blasting Through the Hype: Real Opportunities in MEMS

Dave Welsh
Partech International, US

Keywords: MEMS, investment, nanotechnology

Abstract:
for VC panel Opportunities in the Integration of Micro, Nano and Bio Technologies Abstract: MEMS and Nanotechnology have received a tremendous amount of attention in the media, but most people misunderstand the technology and can only speculate about its true value and application in the “real world.” In this presentation, Partech International General Partner Dave Welsh will provide a pragmatic investor’s point of view – describing why MEMS is an exciting area of venture capital investment, likely early applications for MEMS technology, and where and why Partech International is focusing its investment strategy. In addition, Partech portfolio company MEMGen will provide an overview of its products and technology, and serve as an example of what constitutes a successful investment in the MEMS space. Attendees will learn: · The reality – not the hype – behind “MEMs mania.” · The rationale for venture capital investing in the MEMS space · The challenges and pitfalls of investing in early-stage MEMS technology · Criteria for what makes for a successful MEMS investment · Early applications for MEMS technology
