Date:1/2/2013

New York, NY (PRWEB) January 02, 2013

How are investments made in the sports and fitness industry? Michael Yang, Managing Director, Comcast Ventures, will offer his thoughts on how to pick and fund consumer tech products in his closing keynote on Tuesday, January 8, at the Fitness Tech Summit at the 2013 International CES®. His remarks begin at 3:45p.m. at the Las Vegas Convention Center (LVCC), North Hall N250. Owned and produced by the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA)®, the 2013 CES will occur January 8-11, 2013 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

"Fitness tech is a bourgeoning market that attracts some of the most innovative ideas and our most creative minds,” said Julie Sylvester, Co-Producer, Fitness Tech Summit. “We are excited to be able to provide them a platform to show off their talents."

In his remarks, Yang will discuss which fitness tech companies are doing it right and how keeping fit has spawned a wave of entrepreneurship and innovation for new generation. According to Yang, “ The increased interest in health and well-being has resulted in a wave of monitoring solutions hitting the marketplace. While some may consider them a novelty, these items will soon become integral parts of our lives. The Sports and Fitness Summit is the perfect place to explore what works, what doesn’t, and what companies will be around in a year’s time.”
