AGBC November Monthly Event:
5G – What is it, why does it matter, what benefits does it offer?
Connectivity is creeping ever deeper into our lives and business operations, while business success increasingly depends on network-enabled product and service differentiation. 5G is a key factor for advances in digital transformation. It will play a key role for businesses that want to address the growing customer demand for low-latency and very-high bandwidth product features and service experiences.
In his presentation, Dan Bieler of Forrester Research will explain what 5G is, why it is important, and when 5G will be available. He will also explore the opportunities and use-case scenarios that 5G offers for both industry and consumers as well as security issues.
Dan is a Principle Analyst at Forrester Research and has been in the ICT sector for more than 15 years. At Forrester Dan serves CIOs and digital strategy leaders by guiding them through the challenges of digital transformation. Prior to joining Forrester, Dan worked at Deutsche Telekom’s enterprise division, T-Systems, as a strategic marketing consultant. Before Deutsche Telekom, Dan worked as an EMEA consulting director for telecommunications and networking at the research firm IDC and as a research director at Ovum. Dan holds an M.Sc. in economics and B.Sc. in economics from the London School of Economics and the School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS), both of which are part of the University of London.

German companies seeking to expand beyond local markets have a number of options available to them. The United States, as a large consumer of goods and services, is an obvious choice, but not one without risks. Understanding and planning for the different market dynamics, regulations, and competitors in the U.S. is critical for a successful market entry.
David Gates, President of Gates and Company, will provide an overview of market opportunities and trends in the United States and cover topics related to market entry, such as goal setting, planning, market entry methods, availability of capital, acquisition options, and German business leaders’ outlook for investment opportunities in the U.S.
David Gates spent eight years in a variety of business units within DuPont. Mr. Gates later raised capital and acquired, grew, and sold an early-stage software technology company. He was then Executive Vice President at a middle market electronics technology firm. Mr. Gates founded Gates and Company, an investment banking and management consulting firm, in 1999. Gates and Company is headquartered near Philadelphia and has a “virtual office” in Munich. He has been a member of the AGBC Munich Community since 2012.
Mr. Gates earned a BS in Electrical Engineering and a BS in Computer Science from the University of Tulsa, an MS in Electrical Engineering from Drexel University, and an MBA from The Wharton School. He spent a portion of his undergraduate studies at the University of Salzburg, Austria and worked at a co-op program with Contraves AG (now Rheinmetall Defence AG) in Zurich, Switzerland.
AGBC Munich provides a well-rounded business networking platform with strong contacts to the Munich area American, German, and international business communities.
AGBC meets on the last Wednesday of every month (excluding July, August, and December).
Our monthly meetings are held in English and feature guest speakers who address current business, technology, and cultural topics, e.g., disruptive innovation, corporate social responsibility, business negotiations, entrepreneurism, big data, digitalization/artificial intelligence trends, etc.
