About this event

Our June event will dive into the story of success and failure as told by Eli Reifman, a man who made a huge personal sacrifice for his company. Reifman founded a company that, at its peak, was worth 8 Billion USD but almost collapsed during the 2008 recession. He fought buyout attempts and poured all his money into the company, which meant breaking some regulations. In this process which saved his company and employees, he lost all his money, was convicted for breaking the law, and was sent to jail for four years. Now, Reifman will join Startup Grind to discuss the future of blockchain, new perspectives of market potential for cryptocurrencies, and some of the mysteries behind the future of the economy. This incredible story will generate knowledge and understanding in situations where entrepreneurs must create boundaries within their goals. For those with interest in the blockchain crypto economy, regulations in this field, or how to build a global company selling B2B solutions this event is perfect for you.
