What did the volunteers think?

Stephanie: Interesting meeting with Sam and I learned a lot from his mistakes. Things that seem to be common sense turn out to create unexpected issues. For example, a company should not be structured with 3 shareholders holding 1/3 of the stake each. Or other problems like can emerge like the lack of incentive for a web service provider to perform well. Thank you Sam.

Singh: Thank you Sam for your time today at the dinner! Being a finance enthusiast, it was great to learn from you about traditional investment banking as well as the fintech disruptions that are happening. I am so grateful to hear your honest opinions on the questions asked and how you view the industry and career as a whole. Hope to stay in contact in the future and thank you once again!

Emily: I have learned the fin-tech development and ibankers’ life.
