Silicon Valley Is Converging With Hollywood
Kevin Spacey, an investor in Wisekey, a cyber-security firm, dropped into Davos and talked about his prediction that, in the next few years, Silicon Valley will become more involved in content. He noted that it's no longer the case that aspiring stars need to be in Hollywood to get noticed, because they can be discovered online instead. Spacey went so far as to say he wouldn't be surprised when a big tech company buys a studio. Spacey said, "It's what I thought a few years ago with Yahoo, or Google or Netflix. Those companies who have made a lot of money being a portal for entertainment … if they wanted to compete, they would have to start doing their own content, so I wasn't surprised when Netflix stepped up."
We would also extend special thanks to our host and speakers during the Cybersecurity Roundtable, these being Kevin Spacey, Jimmy Wales, Guido Terreni, Eugene Kaspersky, Robert McFarlane, Don Tapscott, Gary Gauba, David Fergusson and Frederic Esposito who collectively have worked hard to provide a better understanding of the 4th Industrial Revolution and the latest technology trends on Cybersecurity for IoTs, which going forward, will in our view strengthen WISeKey's position on this field, improve our technology, products and approaches and further expand and develop our business.
Special thanks to our ambassador, Kevin Spacey, who I had the pleasure of bringing in Davos for the first time and was unanimously selected as the King of Davos http://www.weforum.org/agenda/2016/01/kevin-spacey-the-king-of-davos-talks-politics-creativity-and-tech.
Kevin was a great ambassador for WISeKey and has created great international awareness on WISeKey Cybersecurity Mission; in addition, to his direct investment in our company which he announced during the event (see Kevin's interview with TechCrunch http://techcrunch.com/2016/01/21/at-davos-kevin-spacey-predicts-that-tech-firms-will-follow-netflix-into-media/).
Finally, we started 2016 on a very strong note as we secured a $60 million facility which we also announced during the Davos event (http://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20160119006327/en/WISeKey-Announces-World-Economic-Forum-Davos-Secured). We believe, this facility will be essential in financing the tremendous business opportunities we see in 2016.
Special Thanks to our sponsors Bvlgari and CenturyLink for their support
