NVTC Board Member Gary Shapiro Shares Advice and Experience with Members at Lunch and Learn Event

On June 4, NVTC hosted a Lunch & Learn event with NVTC Board member Gary Shapiro, president and CEO of the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA)®. At this event, a group of C-level executives from NVTC small business members had the unique opportunity to network with their colleagues and learn from Shapiro’s expert knowledge of technology and business issues.

During the intimate roundtable discussion, Shapiro shared his insights on how to create the right environment for innovation. He highlighted the need to support STEM education, make it easier for startups to raise money, and limit impediments to innovation, such as patent trolls and H-1B visa limits. In addition, Shapiro shared some of the technology trends he thinks are changing the consumer electronics landscape, including smart car technology, the Internet of Things, near field communication, drones, sensors and wearable technology.
