  • Blockchain and Crypto Currencies

    Blockchain, Bitcoin, Ethereum, Crypto, NFTs, Altcoins and Stablecoins are buzzwords all over the media. Whether for business or personal the evolution to blockchain will impact everyone. The Crypto market cap is already over $1 Trillion across 300+ assets and every business is trying to determine how blockchain will affect their future. This session will provide a deeper understanding of all those elements and more so that anyone can engage in a thoughtful conversation about the issues and determine how to take action.
  • The Rise of Alternative Investments

    Alternatives are already a $11 Trillion market and expected to grow over $15 Trillion in the next 5 years. Since moving online a decade ago there is now a proliferation of options with hundreds of platforms in the market offering everything from venture investments to NFTs, trading cards to real estate, crypto to art and more. Institutions and family offices have long known the benefit of having an allocation to Alts and now that is being democratized to everyone across the united states. In due time everyone will have a 5% or more allocation to alts. We will explore how that will happen and how you should participate.
  • Changing landscape of Fintech

    From credit cards to personal finance apps, the financial sector is not a stranger to technology. Now FinTech and Finance are becoming synonymous to make the financial sector more efficient, personalized, and scalable. To achieve this, FinTech companies are using AI, data science, mobile delivery and blockchain technologies to improve the customer experience. The landscape that historically has been owned by a few major banks, buying their way to growth is now being encroached by upstarts and over 100 fintech unicorns (born in the last 20 years). The market is changing fast and we will explore it from banking to trading, payments to insurance, wealth management to lending and beyond.
  • Startup Investing - From Angel Stage to Pre IPO

    investing into private companies has become more democratized than ever. What used to be the job of only a handful of VCs is now becoming the activity of millions across the United states. This has been fueled by the JOBS Act and other changes in regulation, online investing platforms, and the incredible growth of billion dollar private companies before they go public. Everyone is now trying to find their way to invest earlier than ever in the next Uber, Airbnb, or Robinhood. We explore the trends, show how to get access to these opportunities, and explore how to optimize your investment returns.
  • Investing in Culture - NFTs, Trading Cards, Art & Collectables

    Beeple NFT for $69M, Babe Ruth rookie card for $6M, Basquiat art for $22M, Yeezys sneakers for $1.8 - these are some of the massive price tags in the last year as people invest into culture. What used to be a hobby for folks in the 80s is now becoming the next frontier of alternative asset class. As people look to diversify their investments and have more connection to where they put their money, "Investing in Culture" is here to stay. What used to be an opaque fragmented ecosystem is becoming a more transparent market with massive players growing the industry. We will explore these trends and how you should participate.
