Tech Deals in the Downturn: M&A and Shifting Growth Strategies

April 22, 2020
1 Hour

The coronavirus pandemic has had a clear impact on the global economy. M&A deals have dwindled as the virus continues to disrupt regular business activities. The question on everyone’s mind is: In a post-crisis world, which industries will take the lead driving interest and deal activity?

For the past four years, investment bankers surveyed by 451 Research cited artificial intelligence and machine learning (AI/ML) as the most active emerging segments for tech M&A. As part of our quarterly M&A webinar series, join our second webinar of the year for a discussion on the rapidly changing technology investment landscape and new AI/ML use cases.

Our panel of experts will share:

  • The outlook for tech M&A activity and AI/ML landscape
  • Private Equity investments in the industry
  • Recent survey data on AI/ML adoption, use cases, and ROI
  • How buyers are using M&A to accelerate their deployment of new technologies
