International Roundtable Symposium on Tech and Other Disruptive M&A


The International Institute for the Study of Cross-Border Investment and M&A held its sixth Roundtable Symposium on current issues in international cross-border mergers, acquisitions and strategic investments, with a special focus this year on technology-related M&A.

The Symposium represents an effort by its founding universities, New York University, Peking University and Cambridge, and affiliated professionals and companies, to foster dialogue and connections among the world’s leading experts and thought leaders about key issues, trends and developments in the global deal markets. The goal is to encourage pragmatic, de-politicized analysis and study of the market dynamics that fuel business expansion through M&A, and of the financial, legal, governmental and societal frameworks that facilitate or hinder such activity.

The Symposium is open only to invited participants. The roundtable format is designed to encourage participation by all attendees.
