Signature Event

FT - Paul Hastings "Tomorrow's Global Business" Series: Survival and Growth in the New Digital Economy

Thursday, February 11 3:45 PM PDT to 7:00 PM PDT

Technology and the new digital economy have become the pervasive drivers of business transformation and strategy–evolving to dominate every corporate agenda. Today’s tech giants are striving to differentiate themselves through radical innovation or expansion into new areas, while a host of start-ups are creating the “next big thing”— sometimes with an amazing grasp of a whole new market segment. As the new digital economy evolves and dominates every corporate agenda, what will be the key ingredients to survival and successfully navigating new paths to growth?

In the first of a new series of high-level, invitation-only events under the umbrella theme "Tomorrow’s Global Business," Paul Hastings and the Financial Times will gather senior executives and legal decision makers from corporations, investors and disruptors to explore:

  • How incumbents of the tech industry can remain nimble and reinvent or protect themselves to ensure growth in the face of competition from successful newcomers upending business models

  • How successful tech-related companies could raise capital, and how their choices impact ownership and control

  • How forward-looking companies, traditionally considered outside of the tech sector, can leverage new opportunities created by disruptive technologies
