Tomorrow's Digital Landscape - A Conversation with Fred Wilson, Union Square Ventures and Dave Morgan, Simulmedia | Lunch

A session at Ad:tech New York 2012

Wednesday 7th November, 2012

1:00pm to 2:00pm (EST)

Plug www.avc.com – the URL for Fred Wilson’s influential blog about venture capital and entrepreneurship – into Wordle and the resulting word cloud contains interesting surprises: Key words such as “education” and “loans” vie in size and prominence with more expected terms like “growth” and “patent.” Wilson, Managing Partner at Union Square Ventures, was an early investor in social media companies including Twitter, Tumblr and Foursquare, but recently has turned his attention to mobile, education and the crowd-funding platform Kickstarter, which he describes as a “futures market for things people want.” In this afternoon’s keynote session, Wilson and Dave Morgan, CEO of Simulmedia (one of Union Square Ventures’ portfolio companies), will discuss the bets USV is making, why mobile matters, the implications of ever-changing customer behavior for companies new and old, digital and traditional, and what all this means for advertising.

Key Takeaways:

  • Hear about the hottest new sectors for venture-backed startups
  • Learn about what counts as a network and what doesn’t
  • Understand why platform plays are particularly enticing to VCs
