Google & Autism Speaks Invite Hedge Funds To Listen

135BLU_smNew York (HedgeCo.Net) – In an effort to link private investors and hedge funds to innovative autism-related business developments, Autism Speaks, a leading autism nonprofit, is teaming up with Google to hold the 2014 Autism Investment Conference.

The event will be held March 4-5 at the Bently Reserve Banking Hall in downtown San Francisco.

“Private equity and venture capital firms TPG Biotech, Shore Capital Partners, Bay City Capital, Great Point Partners and Google Ventures, plus hedge fund Scopia Capital Management are among the investors slated to attend.” CNBC says.

Google is offering a complementary, day-long “Equipping Entrepreneurs” workshop for all registrants,  ranging from the basics of raising capital and writing business plans to building social marketing campaigns and “guerilla PR.” Participants will be provided transportation to and from Googleplex.

“From healthcare and life sciences to education and housing, AIC2014 will introduce entrepreneurs and companies of all sizes working on innovative products that address the unmet needs of the autism community.” The nonprofit said.

  1. Susan Keller says:

    Now that autism is an industry, we can expect to see no decrease in people being diagnosed with autism (changes to the DSM notwithstanding). The Blue Light campaigns for autism will simply mirror the Pink Ribbon campaigns for breast cancer. Lots of hoopla and feel-goodery and money being donated to big corporations….no meaningful progress in research or prevention.
