On November 30, 2021, the CMA blocked Facebook’s US$400 million acquisition of Giphy, raising questions not just about the future of M&A in the UK, but also the future for innovators looking for a Big Tech exit there as well.
In this exclusive conversation, Competition Policy International has invited author and contributor Daniel Sokol (Gould School of Law, USC) to revisit his recent critique “No Exit: A Threat to Venture Capital, Entrepreneurship and Innovation,” together with Pinar Ozcan (Oxford University), Dom Hallas (COADEC), and John Spindler (Capital Enterprise).
They will dive deeper into what this article proposes are some benefits that venture capitalism in particular, and vibrant M&A activity in general, can bring to competition and innovation as a whole.
Join us on Jan. 31, 2022 at 12pm ET as our experts share their thoughts on whether recent pushes to more closely regulate M&A activity can save competition, or might kill off innovation.
