Southern New England Business Leaders Gather for Annual Meeting Nov 21

GPCC members will convene at the prestigious, time honored tradition of the Annual Meeting on Monday, November 21, and will mark the occasion with an exclusive and coveted keynote address by Providence Equity’s Senior Marketing Director, Paul Salem.

Understanding the importance of a region’s capacity to finance innovation emerging from universities, research institutes and local companies, Salem (who is making his first appearance in our marketplace), is expected to talk about the ever changing dynamics in venture capitalism and angel investor markets and how Rhode Island can respond to these variations. Salem’s address will drive transformative discussions among our membership, resulting in economic growth ideas, which in turn, fosters expansion within our existing industries and ignites new companies that will drive job creation in Southern New England.

Providence Equity is a global investment firm focused on media, entertainment communications and information investments, managing more than $23 billion in equity investments. Salem, who started the firm’s London office in 1999, returned to Providence in 2001.

Reserve your seat for this close to maximum-capacity-filled event today by visiting the events tab on the GPCC website or calling (401)521-5000.
