Mr. Medved has more than 26 years investing and managing technology start-ups, and was asked by DealFlow Media, the producer of the conference, to participate as a speaker.

"I am honored to have been asked to speak at this event," said Mr. Medved.  "My experiences over the years have provided a depth of knowledge about financings from both sides of the table.  At Vringo, we completed an IPO in 2010 as well as subsequent financings, including a recent private placement with various investors including Benchmark Capital and DAG Ventures. I believe that properly financing a company is one of the most important components of being successful in the current business environment and I look forward to discussing these strategies at the conference."
