|August 31, 2015 New York City, NY The Paliwoda Group celebrates 20 years of impact investing today by kicking off its "Next Big Thing" campaign, including a series of talks and roundtable discussions about trends in education, healthcare, and robotics likely to reshape the technology investment landscape over the next 20 years.|
"We've spent the better part of two decades working with early-stage companies to change the status quo through innovation and growth," said Ron Paliwoda, founder and President of The Paliwoda Group. "It is fitting we mark this milestone in that same spirit: not by looking back at our accomplishments, but by looking forward at emerging investment opportunities."
"Next Big Thing" features future thinkers discussing innovation in their area of expertise and how it is changing the human experience. The series includes perspectives on the following themes:
Roundtable discussions among featured experts and their peers combine big ideas with shared learning; and each session showcases exciting startups solving critical challenges at the frontiers of tech, or reaching underserved communities with great need. The organizers also take a proactive approach to connecting participating investors with entrepreneurs by encouraging dialogue about the investment potential of profiled projects.
- Disrupting Big Ed: Reshaping education toward student-centric learning.
- The Empowered Patient: Healthcare in the era of variable pricing and social discovery.
- Rise of the Machines: Leveraging data-infused business processes.
