Capital One invites you to join us Thursday, July 13th as we dive into the impact of disruption on middle market companies, exploring how companies that make up this integral part of the American economy are preparing for and navigating through disruptive changes to their business models and industries.

A recent study conducted by Capital One Commercial Bank found that 62% of middle market company executives feel that their company is "somewhat" or "quite" vulnerable to disruption, while 79% view disruption as primarily or completely an opportunity. What steps are these companies taking to take advantage of this opportunity? What are the financial relationships that need to be in place?
