Anthony Scaramucci made sure his name wouldn’t live in infamy. In 2017, he served as the White House Press Director for the Trump Administration for a mere 10 days—ousted after using colorful language to describe some members of the administration.
Scaramucci, now 57, went back to doing what he did best prior to joining politics—running Skybridge Capital, the successful fund he started in 2005. In 2009, Scaramucci founded the SALT conference, which has quickly become one of the top finance-themed annual conferences.
SALT came back with a bang in New York City in September. Skybridge Capital announced it will launch a $250 million blockchain fund called UNLOX. Skybridge was one of the first to move into bitcoin, and it also has a stake in Ethereum.
Indeed, with the innovation in blockchain technology there are opportunities sprouting up. And Skybridge has been one of the leaders of the movement.
Anthony Scaramucci will join the HBS Club of NY for a wide-ranging conversation about the markets, crypto and how he successfully rehabbed his image after 2017. Join us for this exciting conversation.
Participants must register by NOON on February 15th to receive details on joining the discussion. The Zoom link will be sent out 24 hours before the event.
Please note that no refunds will be issued.
