Panel Discussion: From Finance & Law to a Start-up

  • General Assembly 10 E 21st St New York, NY 10010 USA (map)

We have an exciting update - the panel will be moderated by Josh Frutterman '89.  

Josh founded his first start-up, one of the first successful mail order software companies, as an undergrad and has since gone on to build numerous tech ventures in the online music, restaurant marketing, tech enabled services and ed tech spaces.  Josh is also a JD and MBA and now spends most of his time mentoring and advising through various institutions, including Techstars and Enterprise Futures Network.

Are you a finance professional or a lawyer at a financial institution or law firm but want to make the leap to a start-up? This panel will feature 4 alumni (two bankers and two lawyers) who made the jump as they discuss their experiences and paths into the start-up world.

The start-ups represented are at various stages of maturity and in very different industries. There will be plenty of time for Q&A so bring your questions! There will also be time for networking and this is a great way to make some start-up world connections!

Join us to hear their stories and how you can escape the corporate grind!     Panelists include:    

Liz Simon '05, General Counsel at General Assembly

Ben Alden '06, General Counsel at Betterment

Kyle Kuchera '01, VP Product Development at ISM Connect

Alex Stern '08, Head of Growth at Compass
