The New York NanoBusiness Alliance to Spotlight Area Nanotechnology Innovators at NanoBusiness 2007 Conference Next Week
NEW YORK, NY | Posted on April 11th, 2007
Three New York City-based financial experts lead the keynote addresses being presented at the conference:
On Tuesday, April 17th, NanoBusiness 2007 will get underway with welcoming remarks from Scott Livingston, Managing Director of Axiom Capital Management Inc. Mr. Livingston heads the Livingston Group, a leading investment banking/advisory group focused on nanotechnology, and has been called "sharp and highly connected" by the Forbes Wolfe Nanotechnology Report. He has been an invited speaker on nanotechnology investment trends at the Harvard Club, the Cambridge Healthtech Institute, Nanotechnology.com, the International Business Forum, the Delaware Technology Park, the Business Executives for National Security, Hillary Clinton's Jobs for New York, and has presented to half a dozen state pension leaders across the country.
"NanoBusiness 2007 is one of the handful of must attend events for those interested in nanotechnology investment and business trends," said Mr. Scott Livingston. "We have found that sponsoring and attending the annual NanoBusiness Alliance event has been quite helpful to our business and to our ability to service clients who are interested in new technologies and their impact on industry. Investors, corporations and others interested in clean tech, energy, healthcare, industrial, and other industries would be wise to attend NanoBusiness 2007, as nanotechnology is an enabling technology for rapid advance in these and other fields."
Following Mr. Livingston, billionaire investor Wilbur L. Ross Jr. will present the morning keynote at 8:45 a.m. by discussing the potential of nanotechnology as a source of innovative products and solutions for established industries. Ross, who is also Chairman of the Board and an investor in Nano-Tex, was one of the first financiers to recognize the investment opportunities presented by this promising technology and has expressed his concern at the lack of technology innovation in established manufacturing industries. His belief in the transformational potential of nanotech has led him to enter a general partnership with Masters Capital Nanotechnology, a firm with multiple investments in companies with nano-enabled products.
Later that afternoon, NanoBusiness 2007 will present its closing keynote by Josh Wolfe, co-founder and Managing Partner of NYC-based Lux Capital, focusing on investments in Nanotechnology. He has been an invited guest speaker, lecturer and panelist on nanotechnology to Harvard, Yale, Wharton, Columbia, Cornell, Merrill Lynch, Capitol Hill, government labs, and officials in France, Canada, UK, Spain and Germany. Mr. Wolfe is a co-founder of The NanoBusiness Alliance, a Senior Associate of the Foresight Institute for Nanotechnology, the Coordinator for the Institute of Molecular Manufacturing's Prize in Computational Nanotechnology, and a member of the Cognitive Science Society. He is also author of the acclaimed "Nanotech Report" and editor of Forbes' new publication, the "Forbes/Wolfe Nanotech Report."
In addition to these NY-based keynote presenters, NanoBusiness 2007 will also feature a special session on the application of nanomaterials in water purification, being presented by Keith Blakely, CEO, NanoDynamics. Based in Buffalo, NY, NanoDynamics, Inc. is a leader in the commercialization of nanomaterials and nanotechnology-enabled components and systems.
"Innovation in nanotechnology is thriving in New York, both in New York City and upstate," said Vincent Caprio, Director of the NY NanoBusiness Alliance. "We're proud to have New York so well represented at NanoBusiness 2007, through the participation of these truly visionary thought leaders and companies."
