Semiconductor Venture Funding Gap—Problems and Solutions

Yerba Buena Theater Tuesday, July 10
3:30pm to 5:45pm

Rising capital requirements combined with increasing development costs and longer time to exit have led to diminishing investments in Key Enabling Technologies (KET), semiconductors and hardware. Low levels of KET investment in the US and Europe have profound long-term implications. The necessary investments to create tomorrow’s innovative semiconductor and hardware ecosystems are not being made. We must find a return model that works for KET investors to advance the industry.
