From Wall Street to Silicon Alley

A roundtable discussion with reformed iBankers who made the leap into the world of startups.

Wednesday, September 19th from 8:00 pm to 9:30 pm

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 four reformed investment bankers as they discuss their journey from Wall Street to Silicon Alley and learn how you too can make the leap.

Participants include:

Matt Minoff, CEO of Selectable Media

Before joining Selectable Media, Matt served as an Investment Banker at Allen & Company, where he worked on capital raises and mergers & acquisitions. Prior to Allen & Co, he played professional basketball in Israel and founded the Middle East branch of PeacePlayers International. Matt holds a Bachelor of Arts in Economics from Yale University.
