From Wall Street to Silicon Alley

A roundtable discussion with former investment bankers and finance professionals who made the leap into the world of startups

Investment bankers are becoming a driving force behind many of today's successful startups. If you're tired of building excel models, editing powerpoints and running "scenarios" then join reformed investment bankers as they discuss their journey from Wall Street to Silicon Alley and learn how you too can make the leap. #WStoSA
