For professional members, Industry Connect presents free-market perspectives on pressing issues affecting key industries today, featuring dynamic conversations with top business leaders and policy experts from health care to finance, and technology to energy.

Recent antitrust suits against Facebook and Google raise important questions: Does Big Tech stifle innovation and entrepreneurship? Are consumers hurt by these large companies? Where does Washington D.C. stand on the issue and how are the political whims influencing the conversation? Join us for a probing discussion about the state of competition and future prospects in the tech space with Adam Ross, investor and former Palantir board member.


Adam Ross is co-founder and managing director of Goldcrest Capital, a venture capital firm with offices in Dallas and the Bay Area. Before starting the fund, Adam was a prolific investor in some of the most important technology companies of our generation, including Facebook, Twitter, SpaceX and Palantir Technologies. Adam is the former President of Poly-America, a multi-national consumer goods company. He is a member of the Board of Overseers for the Hoover Institute, a former chapter chair of YPO Dallas, and a member of the Federal Judicial Evaluation Committee, which recommends federal district and circuit court judges for the state of Texas. Adam received his BA from Stanford University, where he was editor-in-chief of the Stanford Review, and his JD from the University of Texas Law School.
