Scott Livingston Scott Livingston, CEO, Livingston Securities—“Changing the Way Innovation is Financed on Wall Street,” Wednesday, November 2| 2:15-3:00 p.m.

The Great American Innovation Machine is alive and well, but is suffering due to lack of access to capital. US companies are leading the world in breakthrough technologies in electronics, energy, healthcare and other key industries, but in order to lead the world in the industries of the future, we need Wall Street to stop focusing on leveraged mortgages, prop trading desks and foreign debt and start focusing on helping innovative companies gain access to the capital they need. Drawing on more than eighteen years of working with emerging technologies at Wall Street firms, Mr. Livingston will educate Congress attendees on the changing landscape on Wall Street, offering practical advice on engaging with investment banking services.
