  • Martina F. Aufiero, SVP and Managing Director

The 9th annual Women's Alternative Investment Summit will bring together an influential group of more than 400 senior-level women — fund managers, institutional investors, and advisors to the industry — across the broad spectrum of alternatives to build trusted networks and engage in candid discussions about alternative investments in an emerging new world. This groundbreaking conference features moderated workshops and panel discussions, facilitated roundtable conversations, and keynote dialogues. Multi-session tracks address the many asset classes, including private equity, venture capital, hedge funds, real estate, infrastructure and real assets investing.

Safeguard's Managing Director, Tina Aufiero, will be participating on a panel entitled, "Reality Sets In: Which Technologies Will Drive Venture Investing?" There's been a lot of buzz about such things as artificial intelligence, cloud computing, personalized genomics and virtual reality, but how do venture investors view these technologies? Which technologies do they think will produce the most opportunity and best returns? Panelists will give their take on where they're investing and what they are steering clear of.

Fellow panelists include: Nilanjana Bhowmik, Founder and General Partner, Converge; Karimah Es Sabar, Chief Executive Officer and Partner, Quark Venture; Lindy Fishburne, Founder, Breakout Labs; and Managing Partner, Breakout Ventures; and Cynthia H. Tseng, CFA, Partner, Fairview Capital.
