On Wednesday, September 24, Members of Gen Next in Los Angeles will meet with Ian Gardner, Chief Strategy and Investment Officer at the LACI to hear about the future of clean tech investment.

He will talk about how LACI works with its portfolio companies, and what’s on the horizon for one of the startup world’s fastest-growing, and most promising, sectors.

Wall Street: The New Security Battlefield, with Kevin Freeman, Author & Expert on Economic Warfare and Financial Terrorism

September 25, 2014, 6:30pm

When we think of threats from foreign enemies, the attacks we picture usually aren’t hidden within our financial markets. Kevin Freeman, Economic Warfare & Financial Terrorism Expert, is concerned that the weaknesses that make us truly vulnerable as a nation aren’t along our borders or in our defense systems. They are actually economic tools and tactics employed by rival nations to exploit weaknesses and pressure points on Wall Street and beyond, that could strain us financially to the point of no recovery. On Thursday, September 25, Freeman will meet with Members of Gen Next Orange County to discuss his work advising companies and the U.S. government on how we can detect our own weaknesses, and defend ourselves against the new battlefield: the financial markets.
