“We are a technology company,” said Goldman Sachs CEO Lloyd Blankfein in 2015. Since then, we’ve heard the same thing from Showtime, Geico, Fidelity, Uber, and others.

While such statements at first sounded strange, they were a sign of how advances in cloud technology, data and analytics, mobile capabilities, and underlying improvements across technology and network infrastructure have fundamentally disrupted almost every industry beyond just TMT.

The impact of these disruptions stretches into the investors traditionally focused on middle-market TMT. Today, a review of the websites of a technology investor, such as Accel-KKR, reveals a transaction list including financial services, real estate, and healthcare -- quite a difference from the list of traditional technology investments found in that same site five or six years ago.

You’ll gain invaluable insight as our panelists assess the evolution and outlook for TMT when you attend The Capital Roundtable’s all-day conference on Private Equity Investing in Technology, Media & Telecommunications Companies on Thursday, November 15, 2018, in New York City.

Here Are Three Key Reasons Why You Should Join Us
1.Understand how TMT disruption is creating a new set of challenges and opportunities for traditional middle-market TMT PE firms and how they look to address those, in an increasingly crowded and competitive landscape.
2.Learn how to define competitive advantage in looking for new investment opportunities outside of traditional TMT segments.
3.Discuss new strategies for delivering strong returns as the pace of tech disruption quickens.

On the one hand, tech’s rapid spread has presented great opportunities for middle-market PE investors, opening up potential new investment areas just as competition and a lack of new company formation were driving up valuations in core TMT sectors.
