Connecting Global Innovation: Tech + Investments in the Pacific Northwest with NACO

The panel of industry insiders who are actively investing in cross-border deals focused on why they are deploying capital to this region, investment trends they are paying attention to and where they see the strongest opportunities to find great entrepreneurs.
