JUNE 24th | 5:00 PM EST

Another in our series of Virtual programs on ZOOM to keep our community of members connected & learning from each other & exchanging best practices.

There’s no doubt that the slowdown in venture investment is impacting companies across industries. The good news for startups looking for funding is that an alternate pathway for direct investment remains open & vibrant: THE FAMILY OFFICES of High Net Worth Individuals and Families.

While Family Offices are a promising alternative to traditional sources of capital for entrepreneurs, knowledge about them is limited because of the discrete nature of the Family Office Industry.

Vijar Kohli (Charter Member) has collaborated to bridge this gap in knowledge, through a discussion with a panel of experts from the Family Office Industry.

Join us on June 24th to learn about this elusive source of capital for entrepreneurs.

  • Eric Kohlmann, Entrepreneur / Family Office
  • Cyrill Wiget, Investment and Wealth Management Executive in Family Office Industry
  • Timothy Speiss, Co- Leader of EisnerAmper's Personal Wealth Advisors Group
