2022 ATCE RDTS Technical Section Dinner

The Research and Development Technical Section (RDTS) would like to invite you to a networking dinner at 2022 SPE ATCE. The dinner is open to all SPE members.

The 2022 SPE ATCE will be held in Houston, Texas and the RDTS dinner will be held alongside on Sunday, 2 October from 7:30 pm to 9:00 pm CDT.

This year’s RDTS dinner is entitled:

"Innovation Supercycle: Entrepreneurial Insights from Venture Capital Ecosystem" listed under ATCE Special Event Tickets.

In recent years, it is commonly accepted that the overall technology innovation and commercialization pace within the O&G slowed. In a stark contrast, the venture capital (VC) enabled ecosystem has had a bull run! A recent University of Chicago study shows that the VC funded firms have fared better – Over 10-year horizon, average employment increased by approximately 475 percent, as compared to about 230 percent in the non-VC funded control group; VC funded control group fared better in high-quality patents grant reflected in higher citations; and the VC ecosystem fared better in overall mentoring and commercialization support. Hence the obvious question – Could we take insights from the VC community to help accelerate our innovation?

 This is a ticketed event and seats are limited! Register to reserve your seat today!


With gratitude to our generous dinner sponsor:
