Keeping Kids off the Street: Wall St. vs. Startups
    Saturday March 10, 2012 12:30pm - 1:30pm @ Hilton Austin Downtown (Salon A) (500 E 4th St, Austin, TX 78701)
    New York is now the #2 startup hub in the country and rapidly rising; however, single most consistent reason given for NYC’s failure to nurture a culture of innovation is Wall Street: it sucks engineers in, drains them of their creativity, and stuffs them with so much cash they can never be “lean” again. This panel includes people arguing against Wall Street as a force for good, people arguing for Wall Street as a natural career path to startups, and people working to “keep kids off the Street” (i.e., keep engineering students from joining Wall Street hedge funds and I-banks).
