The agenda included discussions of overvalued publicly traded technology companies in a variety of sectors, including hardware, telecom, automotive, energy, healthcare services, medical devices, and consumer devices. Special attention was paid to an analysis of the results of Devonshire Capital Funds' very public short of GoPro in the early part of 2015, and the conversations that followed with investment managers, institutional investors, and technology analysts.
Devonshire Capital Funds was founded in May 2014 by the team at XLP Capital to capitalize on hyper-valuations resulting from the technology bubble. The fund officially launched to a select group of friends and family in January 2016.
