Symposium on Risk Management and Financing for Startups at Columbia Business School

New York, NY – April 2, 2017 – FLUXUS LLC CEO Ms. Fanyu Lin will moderate a symposium as part of Entrepreneurship Series at Columbia Business School on April 2, 2017 from 1pm – 4pm.

While courageous risk-taking is what makes true entrepreneurship, it is critical for startups to understand and master risk management, especially when it comes to financing aspect of startups. There are ways of employing highly planned strategies through which risks can be effectively mitigated and even transformed into competitive advantages.

This time, we are thrilled to have three experts to share the art and science of risk management, the techniques and strategies, and how to apply those to startups. The speakers have extensive expertise and experience in this area. With shared passion about entrepreneurship, they are all very committed to coaching entrepreneurs, advising startups and early stage companies.

Please join us for a dynamic discussion about “Risk Management and Financing for Startups” with three experts, including Dr. Dan Galai, who is a co-inventor of the Chicago Board Options Exchange (CBOE) Volatility Index (VIX), the “fear index”, a popular measure of the implied volatility of S&P 500 index options, together with Ms. Alla Gil, CEO of Straterix, who will share her path from the global head of risk advisory at the largest financial institutions including Goldman Sachs and Citigroup to the founder of a risk-management startup, and Mr. Tom Darling, Managing Director at Bentley Associates specializing in technology and growth financing in the US and Asia, who will share the update on VC financing sources in the US and China-segmentation, key success factors and case studies.

Fanyu Lin.
