Deutsche Bank Wealth Management launched its Wealth Innovation Summit this week, introducing young entrepreneurs and investors to leading technology companies and innovators in Silicon Valley. The three-day private event gives more than 80 "Next Generation" clients from around the world the inside track on the latest developments in technology and innovation, arranged in partnership with Plug and Play Tech Center, a Sunnyvale, California-based global innovation platform for start-ups, corporations and investors. The event started yesterday with a series of workshops, demonstrations and networking sessions and also includes tours of some of Silicon Valley's most innovative companies. "We are constantly looking for new ways to give our clients access to experiences, networks and investment opportunities that they can't get anywhere else," said Fabrizio Campelli, Head of Deutsche Bank Wealth Management. "The Wealth Innovation Summit is a unique opportunity for our global Next Generation clients and Silicon Valley entrepreneurs to meet, exchange ideas and discuss ways to work together at the cutting edge of technology." The Wealth Innovation Summit is part of the further buildout of Deutsche Bank Wealth Management in the US. Leveraging its global network and expertise from across Deutsche Bank, Deutsche Bank Wealth Management provides capital markets expertise and international solutions tailored to the individual needs of clients such as entrepreneurs and next-generation affluent family members.

"This Silicon Valley summit is an exciting extension of our Next Generation programs which have been running for over 15 years," said Salman Mahdi, Deutsche Bank Wealth Management Vice Chairman. "It's a fantastic opportunity to showcase our technology and entrepreneurship credentials and deepen our relationships with tomorrow's business leaders."
