Join us for our KFN Speaker Series event on Wednesday, February 7th from 6:00pm - 8:00pm.  We are thrilled to have Kellogg graduates Sunil Hirani, Jalak Jobanputra and Kevin Goldstein share their expertise on Bitcoin, Blockchain, and Initial Coin Offerings.  Further your understanding while learning why you should care, where they are headed and the implications for you, your business and your clients.

Sunil, Jalak and Kevin will address the media hype while sharing insights on:

1)    Blockchain technology - what is it and why does it matter to the financial industry?

2)    Cryptocurrencies (e.g., Bitcoin, Ethereum, Ripple) – a new institutional/retail investable asset class?

3)    Initial Coin Offerings (ICOs) - $6B raised in 2017 – implications for venture capital, the financial community and the economy?

4)    Regulation - Status?  What’s coming?
