The NYC High Tech Family Office Meetings are a series of select Semi Annual events dedicated to investments of high net worth individuals and single family office executives in cutting edge Technology Opportunities.

Investment opportunities in innovative technologies are increasingly being recognized by the next generation of wealthy families and theirfamily office executives. Family members are more open to exploring opportunities far from their family’s core business and traditional investment portfolios of real estate, stocks, commodities, etc. They understand exciting opportunities exist within high level technology sectors and see the wealth being created, seeking to diversify their portfolios whilst waiting for the next unicorn opportunity.

Unlike traditional institutional investors, high net worth individuals and single family offices are uniquely positioned to invest in innovative technologies. In part, due to their freedom of cross-sector investments, appetite and ability to invest in different company stages, different growth perspectives and market caps with more exibility than institutions that must adhere to specific holding periods due to a fund’s timeline or structure. They are more open to the idea of risk than institutional funds that are highly restricted and regulated. Family offices see this as an exciting investment adventure.

With exibility, patience, and resources, private wealth creates the ideal long-term investor base. Investors are on the constant hunt for returns looking to tap into innovations from Fintech to Aerospace, Life Science to the Internet, Cleantech to Agtech. Network with some of the most successful entrepreneurs of our time and those SFOs who know the value of innovative technologies as they seek to turbo-boost their portfolios. Come and discuss the latest cutting edge ideas, tech trends and investing models in a unique environment.
