Presented by Dr. Rodney Sampson and mentors from the opportunity.UP and Kingonomics movement, this interactive session promises to provide attendees with a roadmap on intersecting innovation, influence and affluence with the definitive purpose of funding high tech and high growth startups to create wealth in underserved communities and beyond.
