Presenting MEMS market opportunities

PITTSBURGH, USA: Micro-electromechanical systems (MEMS) is in the mainstream. While changing the way that we interact with the world around us, MEMS also presents promising new investment opportunities in consumer electronics and mobile communications, biomedical/healthcare, automotive and energy.

That’s the topic of Karen Lightman’s presentation to attendees of the 7th annual Livingston Nanotechnology Conference, which brings together blue-chip corporations, promising startups and leading investors to discuss investment and business trends in micro- and nanotechnology.

“Small tech is alive and well,” said Karen Lightman, managing director of MEMS Industry Group, the trade association advancing MEMS across global markets. “And while the scale of MEMS and nanotech differs by an order of magnitude, both are advanced technologies which allow us to interact with the world around us in new and exciting ways. I am delighted to share perspectives on the MEMS marketplace with attendees of the Livingston Nanotechnology Conference. Slated for double-digit growth through 2015 in diverse markets worldwide, MEMS is one of the technology industry’s most fertile growth areas.”

Scott Livingston, chairman and CEO of Livingston Securities, expanded on the relationship between his firm and the MEMS industry: “Livingston Securities is dedicated to changing the way that innovation is financed on Wall Street. Our focus on the nanotechnology revolution has helped us build a strong investment bank and broker/dealer with a growing franchise in a variety of industries, including energy, electronics, healthcare, infrastructure and others. Karen Lightman is a leader in the MEMS field, which is a growing area of interest to our clients. We are honored to have her present at our flagship year-end event.”
